Sinclair Martial Arts - Orillia

Ian Sinclair

In 1979, Ian Sinclair began his training in Taijiquan (Tai Chi), Qigong, and Chinese martial arts. His devotion to these arts has increased over the years, motivated by great teachers and the benefits that these arts offer the people who learn them.

Ian owes the bulk of his understanding to the generous instruction he has received from the world famous Grandmaster, Shouyu Liang. He is also very grateful to years of masterful instruction from Sam Masich, one of North America’s most well known and respected teachers.
