Paris Verras

I always attracted to the idea of getting involved with Martial Arts but at the same time something kept me away from them. I don’t know the reason of it, being the Martial Arts themselves, the way of teaching them or the quality of the people who taught them. The point is that I had never seriously got involved with any Martial Art. Just had that thought kept in my mind, like I was waiting for something special.

It was in 2004, when a friend told me about a teacher who was teaching a martial art that was unusual and different from what I had seen till then. That Art was Tai Chi Chuan. From the first lesson I was impressed by the man and teacher, Mr. Dionisis Tsetselis and also by the Tai Chi style that he was teaching at that time, which was based on the style of the Wu Family.

Thankfully, not only for me but also for the rest of the team, my teacher’s love for the Art and his will for further improvement, led us right to the source of Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan and specifically to the Great Grand Master Wu Kwong Yu.

After the first seminars with Grand Master’s representative, Sifu Chuang Shiou Huey and especially after our contact wit the Grand Master himself in the 2007/2008 seminars in London, we realized the depth and width of the authentic Tai Chi Chuan but also the value of learning the Art right from the source.

I would like to thank my teacher Mr. Dionisis Tsetselis who, besides the fact that he continues teaching me, made me love this great Art by sharing his passion for it. I also thank him because through him I met a really great person, the Great Grand Master Wu Kwong Yu, thus broadening my horizons in Tai Chi Chuan and in my life also. I owe a great dept of gratitude to the Grand Master for the knowledge he offers to my fellow students and me and also for his trust, certifying me as a Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan instructor
