Featured Instructor


Posted by: Dan

Apologies to all, especially to Catherine Birkinhead, for neglecting to draw your attention to the 'Featured Instructor' article composed by the website team.
We had discussed using a Golden Oldie such as young Steve Wooster, Katherine Allen and many others. In the end we chose Cathy, not because she makes excellent Blackberry gin , but because she puts her whole spirit into her Tai Chi. A few years back, I was chatting to the late Kathy Davies as we watched the forms events at the British open TCC Championships in Oxford. A new competitor started doing her hand form. I said to Kathy, 'Who the Hell is this?' Kathy caught on immediately and said, Lots of mistakes, but with training, she could be great.'
Kathy told her of our conversation. Cathy turned up at the next camp. The rest is history. However, she has moved onto the next stage and has become an excellent judge and coach. She deserves to be the first Featured Instructor.
