Headteacher: David Keegan

SC1 Senior International Instructor.
Director: Technical Director: Tai Chi Division (TEMAA)
Technical Director: Chinese Internal Martial Arts (UKBF)

David has dedicated his study to the art of Yang Style Tai Chi and previously studied many other martial arts beginning with Jujutsu in 1959.

He has also studied the Japanese Koryu of Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu and trained with several Japanese masters.

He was the first instructor of Chinese martial arts to ever be recognised by the UK branch of Japan's oldest martial arts fraternity, the Kokusai Budoin and has received Dan grades in the art.
Since establishing the Metal Tiger Academy he has looked outside of Tai Chi for instruction, training with the likes of Hanshi Allan Tattersall, Renshi Reiner Parsons and recently receiving his first lesson in Filipino martial arts by Shihan Robert Carruthers. He has also recently begun learning the Shaolin methods of Chi Kung and continues to develop his understanding of the internal martial arts.
