Master George H Lee began studying martial arts at the age of 13 under a prominent Kung Fu master in Brunei. Later, in 1969, he joined the Brunei Karate Association before moving to Adelaide in 1970 to further his education. He continued his martial arts career under several masters both here and overseas.
In 1971 Master Lee began teaching martial arts, including Kung Fu, Karate, Kempo Silat and various weaponry. Following his father’s advice, he began studying QiGong and Tai Chi in 1986. With his extensive martial art skills he was able to advance rapidly and become proficient in the Internal Arts.
From the late 1980’s onwards, Master Lee became interested in the healing powers of chi, extending his studies into the fields of Chinese acupressure massage, oriental and western herbal therapies, reiki and spiritual healing.
Throughout his teaching career, many students have benefited from Master Lee’s extensive knowledge and experience in martial arts, Tai Chi, Chi Kung and natural healing. He has lectured in the theory and practical concepts of Chi Kung and Tai Chi to students of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture at the Adelaide Training College of Complementary Medicine. Master Lee regularly conducts workshops, seminars and lectures to various community groups. He is an accomplished natural healer, treating many people with all kinds of ailments in his private clinic.
Master Lee continues to extend and refine his knowledge for the benefit and enjoyment of his many students.

Imagine trying to look into a window with the curtains drawn.
Impossible to judge what is inside with an obscured view?
Every Tai Chi movement involves the Tai Chi philosophy of time and space.
Learning movements only without understanding is like looking through a drawn curtain.
Tai Chi philosophy is the centre that harmonizes Western knowledge and ancient Chinese wisdom.
We, as egotistical creatures, tend to separate these two studies; in reality they are closely related.
Tai Chi is both scientific, philosophical and joined with Eastern mysticism. Together we can travel into the Tai Chi philosophy so that we gain a better understanding of this beautiful and fulfilling art.
Founded on many underlying principles.
3 basic principles:
* Void and boundless state that prevailed before existence.
* The ultimate nothingness
* Before creation time was nothing, but there must have been something.
* We do not know what that something was, nor do we know where it came from, but something was there.
* It simply cannot be comprehended rationally- its existence is only implied, like an object that you see in the mist.
* Ancient Chinese describe it as a phenomenon of nothingness
* It has form, yet it is unformed
* It has shape but is still without shape.
* You confront it, it has no front
* You chase it, it has no back
* This phenomenon of nothingness is the source of all movement and stillness
* Everything in the universe, including yin/yang is believed to evolve from this source.
* Lao tze named it Tao
Yijing called it Tai Chi
Wangzongyue in his theory of Tai Chi said Tai Chi is born of Wu Chi - and summarised it as the origin of dynamic and static states and the mother of Yin and Yang.
If they move, they separate
If they remain static, they combine.
Tao does not only reflect the creation of the universe, but also the relationships between us and all things and vice versa.
All actions arise from inaction
* When something arises from Wu Chi, the original state of nothingness no longer exists, and the state of Tai Chi begins
* Tai Chi displays the two qualities Yin & Yang
* Void of Wu Chi is Yin, transformation is Yang
* Yin and Yang are opposites
* Learn to apply the Yin/Yang theory through the practice of push hands.
