Welcome to the Yinghua Wu style T’ai Chi Ch'üan school
Dr. Jin Ye welcomes you to the Yinghua Wu Style T'ai Chi Ch'üan school, named in honour of her late grandmother who taught her the theory and practise of the art.
Jin Ye has taught T'ai Chi Ch'üan for over 20 years, originally in her home city of Shanghai and more recently in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, UK.
Master Jin Ye is unique in the UK for her insight and knowledge of Wu Style T'ai Chi Ch'üan being the only practitioner to have direct Wu lineage and probably the only teacher in the UK to know the five Wu style double edged sword forms. She started practising T'ai Chi Ch'üan in Shanghai when she was only 10 years old. When she was 16 she started studying the theory with her grandmother, Wu Yinghua, and was teaching in Shanghai by the age of 22.
She has also trained in medicine originally by her grandfather on her father's side; a famous Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) doctor specialising in Chinese massage and acupuncture. She learned Medicine from her parents who are both TCM and western medicine doctors. She holds a BSc. in Pharmaceutics, qualified in TCM, massage and acupuncture at the Shanghai International TCM college and obtained her doctorate in pharmacy at Liverpool John Moores University.
