My teacher, Chris Henney based in Stockport, her training has been overseen by Dan since the 90s. Chris is a level 9 principal instructor. Chris has competed, judge and prepared students for competitions. She is also Honorary Vice President of The Tai Chi Union of G.B. she has always encouraged me to travel to train with Dan and his senior instructors. We regularly had Dan Docherty visit us in Stockport to teach tai chi at workshops.
Tai Chi Chuan as taught by Cheng Tin Hung. A Hong Kong journalist coined the phrase Practical Tai Chi Chuan after seeing how practical Cheng Tin Hung style of tai chi was. Dan Docherty went to Hong Kong in the early 70s to learn tai chi, he trained under Cheng Tin Hung. He represented Hong Kong in the 5th south East Asian Chinese martial arts competition which he won. He was the Head of PTCCI. He travelled internationally to teach and has written many books on the subject, organised competitions and has played a leading role in promoting Tai chi in Europe and UK. Practical Tai Chi Chuan is also know as wuDang style.
