Jono Podmore

Born in Liverpool, Jono began studying Karate when he moved to London to study in 1983. After achieving 2nd dan black belt, teaching regularly and international competition he recognised that the next step was in Tai Chi.

He began training at Sifu Gary Wragg’s Academy in 1997 but in 1999 left London to live and work in Germany and France and start a family. On his return to London in 2009 he continued his training at Wu’s Academy Bethnal Green where he is now a regular presence in the advanced class, teaching the Sunday morning family beginners class and taking part in competitions and demonstrations worldwide.

In 2016 he began his own club in Forest Hill, London, which is now well established.

He was made a Closed Door student of Sifu Gary Wragg in November 2017.

In 2005 Jono was appointed Professor of the Practice of Popular Music at the University of Music in Cologne, Germany.

He lives in London, continuing with his own practice as composer, producer and performer.
