Bret lives in Oxford, Michigan USA where he has studied with student of Cheng Man-Ch’ing, Carol Yamasaki since 1989 and through Carol was introduced to many of Professor Cheng’s other senior students, in particular Benjamin Lo and Liu Hsi-heng.
Bret will be coming back to Europe to lead push hands and form workshops in February 2020.
“My experience of Bret’s approach to push hands and the form is of a profound and functional non-doing. He is very adept at helping you to feel for yourself how you can let your partner’s force return to them, and bringing your attention to the subtle obstacles that we put in our way to achieving this.” – Redmond, UK
“Training form and push hands with Bret is a fresh and unique experience – like traveling on the yin/yang symbol, where the practices and principles of each side are apparently different, but are inseparably conjoined. Front/back, external/internal, sinking down/floating upward, body/mind and energy, all merge and become the Whole. Bret’s rare push hands ability deeply informs his form teaching. He brings a unique perspective and new practices to a sound traditional foundation” – Cay, USA
“Bret’s style is refreshingly unusual without being at odds with any of the classic principles of Taiji. In some ways difficult to categorise but, in my humble opinion, well worth the time. His teaching style is relaxed with a very high degree of attention to the individual, a more practical rather than theoretic approach. And, on top of that, a very pleasant chap.” – Ian, UK
