In 2000 I met Hans through my friend Candice Jones, a Yoga Teacher. He is a Martial Artist. A handsome, vibrant man with an aura of mystery around him. He immediately intrigued me.
Hans vibrated with passion for his life purpose; to perfect Martial Arts and become a Master. He began training from the age of nine. When I met him he had already traveled the world to train with renowned Martial Artists in Aikido, Kung Fu, Tai Ji and other styles. Soon he was to leave to train with a Chinese Sensei in Australia, who worked as a construction worker in the day and taught his students after hours.
I did not know then that when I met him years later in 2010 I would become his student and begin my training as a Tai Ji Granny at the age of 63! It would be the beginning of an interesting and meaningful life experience.
My life as a Tai Ji Granny.
