Lez Niepo

I’m Lez Niepo, canadian artist, explorer and Qigong practitioner. Looking for a Tai Chi teacher in Central Asia in 2003, I stumbled on Martins  website, and his resort “Here & Now”  on Koh Tao Island.

In January 2004 I made my first trip to Thailand, and I met Martin in person. He introduced me to the short and long form Tai Chi Chuan,  created by grand-master William C.C. Chen, and that’s  how I became Martins  student. Since then I’ve been going back year by year to study with him to improve the form and get more valuable instructions. Martin is a great “master teacher”, devoted to his teachings  and  good friend. Therefore I  strongly recommend his teachings  for the  beginners and advanced Tai Chi practitioners, and I’m always looking forward to studying and seeing him again.
