Des Lawton has been a practising martial artist for over thirty-five years and is, since its inception in 1989, the Principal Instructor of the San Bao Martial Arts School . He has teaches a network of Taiji, Taiji Quan and Neijia Quan classes in and around the Glasgow area. He is also in great demand for his work, teaching Taiji and self-defence, both for Community Education projects and within resource groups for people with learning difficulties and special needs. In addition to this he also carries out consultancy work in the field of complementary medicine and stress management. In 1996, after three and a half years of study with the Glasgow School of Shiatsu, Des qualified as a Registered Shiatsu Practitioner (M.R.S.S.). He now runs a successful practice in East Kilbride . He is also one of the four original researchers, known collectively as The Blue Group, who among their other channels of research were responsible for the initial developement of Waveform Energetics.
Des Lawton is now teaching a number of courses and workshops including the Taiji Shibashi Qigong and a Taiji Shibashi Qigong Instrucor course. These, along with the existing self-defence courses and all the classes that he teaches keeps him very busy……………. I don’t think he would like it any other way! Mind you he still manages to find plenty of time for hill walking (his “me” time) and he is to be seen tramping around on the Scottish mountains while he soaks up the fresh air and qi.
