Mike began his journey into Taiji Chuan (Tai Chi) well over 20 years ago, his journey has been guided and influenced by many great teachers along the way. Mike began his studies under Master John Green, 65th generation Tien Shan Pai, over time he was fortunate to then be exposed to the teachings of Grand Master Huang, Chien Liang, 64th generation Tien Shan Pai. After many years of dedicated study under Grand Master Huang at the US Kuoshu Academy Mike's journey led him to Master Damo Mitchell of Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts. Under the guidance of Master Mitchell, Mike further deepened his understanding of Tai Chi, Qigong and Taoist Meditation.

Mike has the unique ability to bring his passion & deep understanding of this ancient art and transfer it to an enjoyable but fulfilling practice for all his students, regardless of age or physical ability. Mike truly believes that Taiji Chuan has profoundly changed his life forever, because of this he feels a sense of responsibility to his past teachers to share his knowledge with others. He hopes that his students will develop a deeper appreciation of this art in hopes of bringing balance and health into their daily lives.
