Mike is originally from Toronto and began studying martial arts with Karate in 1971. He started Sanshou with Grandmaster Liang when he first came to Vancouver. Besides teaching Sanshou, Mike also practices Bagua, Tai Chi, Xing Yi, and Iron Shirt Qi Gong. His view on martial arts is that they help to keep us healthy. He believes that the classes are a great place to meet people, as he first met his wife Joan in Karate. It is his hope that Grandmaster Liang will continue to publish his knowledge and keep teaching his wonderful Wushu classes.
