Natural Way Tai Chi: Alan Peck
‘Natural Way’ is a level of accomplishment of T’ai Chi Chuan which transcends technique.

”If you think there is a method, that is not it”
A sincere and gifted practitioner of Yang style T’ai Chi in the lineage of Dr Chi Tiang Dao and Cheng Man Ching, Alan Peck taught for over thirty years mostly at the Natural Way School of T’ai Chi in Bristol.
