Robert Agar-Hutton

The founder and chief instructor of the academy is Robert Agar-Hutton. He has been studying Tai Chi since the late 1970s and has been teaching since 1993.

He holds a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Martial Arts and Sports Psychology from the University of Derby. His degree was earned after three years of full time study, as a mature student, between 2007 and 2010. This degree makes him one of only a handful of people and probably the only Tai Chi instructor in the country, with both a formal UK academic qualification and practical experience of the art.

His main interests are Tai Chi for health and Tai Chi for Self Defence. He is regularly asked to teach Tai Chi and Self Defence at seminars in the UK, USA, and Malaysia.

As an instructor his main emphasis is making Tai Chi easy to understand and giving students all the information they need in order to learn and develop their skills.

Robert would be very happy to answer any questions you might have.


Lee Agar-Hutton

Lee Agar-Hutton has been involved with Tai Chi since the 1990s. She is Chinese (from Malaysia) and grew up understanding the Chinese language (The two main dialects, Cantonese and Mandarin) and also the cultural heritage that is part of Tai Chi.

She has experience of Yang and Sun styles of Tai Chi as well as previously having spent a number of years practicing Karate.

Lee is a down-to-earth instructor who rarely discusses the history of the art or the reasons ‘why’. She focuses her energy on ‘doing’, believing that it is the actual practice that gives the benefits that we all need.
