Hi, I'm Larry!

Over the past forty years I have studied taiji, qigong, kick boxing, taekwondo, karatejutsu, kobujutsu, boxing, kick boxing and weapons training.


I have lived and trained in South Africa, America, Japan, Holland, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand and Australia.

I have also provided security in San Francisco, South Africa, Japan and Australia both in a private and business capacity for private and corporate clubs and music event organisers.


This training has lead me to a natural self confidence, a heightened state of awareness, deeper concentration, more self confidence and an understanding of the different methods of movement leading to an understanding of meditation.


I borrow from the systems I have previously studied and work diligently on those aspects which suit my abilities, and it is for students to experience the personal benefits of this training and draw their own conclusions.

    happy customer

  • Hi Larry, The girls have all really benefited from the course with you and the feedback from all the parents has been really good. Collectively, we all think a refresher course in the holidays would be great. I'll leave that to the girls to sort out a day which suits them all! Your patience in trying to get this initially all sorted was greatly appreciated and I'm sure we'll see you again. Kind Regards

taiji training

Taiji has evolved over centuries from its beginning as 'the Supreme Ultimate Fist' martial art to become a means of inner refinement; a science of body mechanics; meditation; health and relaxation.

While a state of health and relaxation is conceptually easy to grasp, it is difficult to achieve and requires dedication and indeed 'learning how' to relax.

self defence

Self Defence Sydney provides private or group self defence training, programs and classes in the Eastern suburbs of Sydney, tailored to each clients unique specifications.

In self defence no 'style' is taught but rather the 'tools of impact' needed to ward off even the biggest aggressor.

Sydney east meditation classes


There are interesting methods designed to create a meditative and quiet approach to 'mind' and a control of one's emotions.

A state of 'no mind' or emptiness which allows deep internal processes to occur. Inner listening is a vital aspect to this method of training.

To experience stillness during activity is a heightened state of awareness which trains us to be still even in the most extreme situations.
