Bob began his Martial Arts experience in the late sixties studying Judo and Karate. Karate was not quite his niche and he continued to seek an Art that would stretch his abilities further. This his he found in Wang Kung Shou Tao, which he began studying in the early seventies, and attained Instructor status in 1979. Studying with leading Teachers of Tai Chi Chuan, and with some guidance from his immediate Teacher (Master Joe Bell), Bob opened his first Taiji class in East Kilbride in September 1985. Since this time, Bob has steered the School to international recognition through the promotion of Tai Chi Chuan at home and abroad.
