When quite young he was interested in Zen meditation, Taoism, Chinese medicine and health/exercise practices like yoga. From there he moved onto Shiatsu, herbal medicine, Aikido, Qigong, Tai Chi, Feldenkrais technique and many different meditation techniques.

Brian met Bruce Frantzis in 1987 and immediately began to practice what is now known as the "Energy Arts" system. He went on to become a qualified instructor in some of the Qigong practices that energy arts teaches. He learned the Wu style Tai Chi long form and is now a senior instructor within the energy arts system.

Brian's main interest is in using Wu style tai chi as a container for all the internal functions within qigong tai chi and meditation.

Brian currently teaches classes and workshops in Brighton and Colchester.
