Sifu Christine Barbier is an authorised instructor of the Tse Qigong Centre and her class is affiliated with that Centre.

The Tse Qigong Centre was created in 1990 by Grandmaster Tse to bring Traditional Chinese Qigong and Martial Arts skills to the West. Grandmaster Tse has spent over 30 years training with some of the most famous and venerated masters in China. Today the Centre has many instructors and classes all over the world.

The skills offered by the Centre are all focused around bringing good health to the body and mind. These include three styles of martial arts – Wing Chun, Taijiquan and Chun Yuen Quan – and two styles of Qigong – Wild Goose Qigong and Hard Qigong.

The skills taught by the Tse Qigong Centre can be learned by attending weekly classes in a wide range of locations in the UK and abroad. The centre also has an extensive range of weekend seminars (both On-line and In-person) and summer residential courses, which are ideal to deepen one’s knowledge.

The Tse Qigong Centre regularly publishes articles, videos and books about its qigong and martial art skills. This includes live lectures and demonstrations by Grandmaster Tse given at seminars in the UK and worldwide.

The Centre is the publisher of the Qi Magazine, which was a regular quarterly magazine. The magazine is not in regular print anymore, however all the back copies of the Qi Magazine are available free of charge from the Centre website. There are over 90 editions which contain invaluable information about Chinese traditional skills and philosophy.
