Sifu Tony Dove
Balance and energy for mind, body and spirit, in Bristol & the West Country.
Sifu Dove has had the privilege of being a student of Grandmaster Lam's for almost 30 years. He has taught Tai Chi since 1995 and Qi Gong since 2000. He started teaching Choy Li Fut for the first time in 2016. His experience includes healing, martial and meditative aspects of these arts. Sifu Dove continues to study directly under Grandmaster Lam.
In 2000, Tony was asked to develop Falls Prevention classes of Tai Chi and Zhan Zhuang for a Primary Care Trust and Social Services, to over 50's. The benefits were scientifically measured, and the group as a whole improved out of the 'at risk of falling' category within a few months. He has since worked for more than four NHS Primary Care Trusts delivering accessible exercise to older clients.
Now established in the West Country, Tony has developed regular classes for the community, inviting everyone, regardless of age or ability. He continues to develop his speciality in teaching classes for the over 50's, those with Parkinson's and for those with chronic & acute medical conditions. He also delivers a full curriculum for those wishing to explore the deeper aspects of the arts.
