Wee Kee Jin is the principal instructor at the Taijiquan School of Central Equilibrium based in Auckland New Zealand he is internationally recognized as a senior instructor of the Huang Sheng-Shyan system and is in ongoing demand by schools and associations in Europe, New Zealand and Brisbane Australia. Jin has dedicated himself to Taiji for well over twenty years, with most of that professionally teaching in Singapore, where he was born, and in New Zealand where he immigrated in 1991. Twice a year Jin gives workshops in England, Holland, Germany, Austria, Norway and Denmark, plus every few months he crosses the Tasman to Brisbane, Australia. Over the southern hemisphere summer months Jin hosts visiting students from Europe, America and Australia, providing them with residential training including personalized tuition, and access to his schools’ classes. The distance hasn’t deterred many from returning regularly. This is probably not just a reflection of Jin’s depth in understanding Taijiquan, but also his open and accessible teaching style.

B&B’s / hotels that will require a car / transport
Note: buses and walking may be possible but you would need to enquire about this.
ETAP hotel – similar to Travelodge – is located near the Don Valley Stadium. I read a review that said the rooms sleep 3, the 3rd bed being a bunk above a double bed. Do check first. Apparently the rooms have no tea and coffee making facilities. I suppose if they have a power point you could bring your own. The price for a room (sleeps 3 apparently) £32 per night – no breakfast.
There are Travelodge’s around the city. Look on the Travelodge website for further information. Possible to get cheap deals through Expedia.com. Be aware that the Travelodge in the centre of Sheffield is more expensive and has no parking for cars.
