"Having trained with Tim for over a year I find his lessons very informative, and he breaks down the moves and applications into manageable chunks so that you can more easily understand and digest. Always friendly and in a relaxed environment, I feel I have learnt a great deal from his instruction, and would recommend anyone considering trying Ving Tsun, or looking to develop existing skills to take a look at Tim’s style, great value and happy to explain any concepts that you do not understand"
"I've been practising Wing Chun for 2 ½ years, and I needed a new instructor due to scheduling problems; as a personal trainer and self-defence instructor, I knew what I was looking for. Having only trained with Tim for a few weeks, I've quickly realised that he is absolutely top-of-the-tree. His teaching style is simple to understand and he paces the difficulty level perfectly; he makes you want to learn more and improve. He’s very patient with me as I'm a bit of a slow learner but I never feel he is having to be patient, so I always feel confident as Tim is also very encouraging. As a person he embodies the qualities that all of us who practise martial arts should aspire to – kindness, humility, respect, generosity, humour and helpfulness. I make a two-hour round trip on my one day off to learn under Tim and it’s a journey I'm very happy to make. I can see myself studying with Tim for years to come. Looking forward to chi-sao next week, Sifu "

"I enjoy training with Tim. He always has time to listen about what you want to achieve. I find he is very honest and good at explaining Wing Chun. The training I do is very soft and Tim slows it down for it to be understood better. The training I do is under no pressure and in a relaxed atmosphere. Tim is extremely talented at what he does and I hope to be training with him for many years to come"
"I am currently doing one to one classes with Tim, which I am enjoying
Tim has a real passion for Wing Chun, which comes thru in his
teaching! Helping his students to achieve the best possible results!
Step by step, move by move and if there's anything your not sure about
will happily go back over as many times as needed!.
I would highly recommend anyone looking to start there own Wing
Chun journey! To check out Tims website! as it is very informative and
tells you all you need to know to get you started"

"I have had a number of private lessons with Tim, i feel i have progressed more so than in a class enviroment, as i can ask questions more freely, and the training is 1 on 1. We can also focus on a individual movement or exercise, as we are not in a class of people. Tim is very knowlageable, and listens when i ask a question. He focuses on my goals and inspires me to learn. All in a completely laid back and no pressure enviroment.. I practice with Tim on a regular basis, and always look forward to training. He inspires confidence, and i am very pleased to be training with a professional. I would defiantly recommend Tim for 1 on 1 sessions"
"Tim is exactly what you want in a instructor - skilled and knowledgeable but, more importantly, open and willing to share those skills and that knowledge."

'I feel very privileged to be receiving instruction from Tim. From the very first lesson, his friendly and highly thoughtful guidance instilled in me a deep curiosity in just where my martial arts journey will take me. He models a calmness and relaxed focus that I find, as a beginner, hugely helpful in 'setting the tone' for my practise. His skills, experience and abilities as a martial arts practitioner and instructor are evident, but he has also the rare and delightful gift of encouraging, acknowledging and celebrating the student's own discoveries and descriptions of 'what works for them'. I highly recommend training with Tim.'
I have always wanted to learn wing chun but felt nervous about stepping straight into a class environment as a complete beginner. I had done some research into local clubs but never committed myself, so when I happened to come across Tim's website I was drawn in. I found the website very informative and this inspired me to actually commit and start on my journey. After speaking and meeting Tim it was evident I had made the right decision. Tim is a excellent instructor and under his expert tuition and encouragement I will get there. Looking forward to the next lesson.
I have practice many different forms of martial arts during the past 15 years and Wing Chun Kung Fu is by far the best in terms of the skills, poise and confidence it gives to the student.
Tim is an excellent coach and mentor who constantly encourages and challenges you to focus and continuously raise your game in a safe and motivating environment.
Having practised Ki Aikido for many years, I was keen to find a martial arts class closer to home especially since I now had to fit this around busy work and family commitments with two young children. I know how hard it is to find good teachers of martial arts and was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled on the Hertfordshire Ving Tsun Kung Fu home page. Sifu Tim is extremely humble, friendly and approachable as a teacher and has absolutely no ego in his own fantastic ability. Not only does he have a passion to teach but our 1:1 training sessions are also fun and enjoyable. I find myself both mentally and physically challenged, engaged and he takes the time to demonstrate the practicalities and indeed subtleties of this martial art in a way that is simple and very effective. He is clearly driven to constantly evolve and increase his own considerable knowledge and skills whilst improving mine. I find our sessions truly motivating and inspiring. I respect him completely as a teacher and I consider myself lucky and honoured to be his student.
