Patricia Kent

Set up and run by Patricia Kent, Lilac Moon Tai Chi is based in the rural township of Trentham, Victoria. Patricia also runs classes at community centres and halls in the neighbouring towns of Ballan, Gisborne and Kyneton.

“I was born in England in 1946 and emigrated to Australia in 1968. I now live a quiet life in Trentham, Central Victoria, teaching and training in Tai Chi and Qigong.

My love of martial arts began at age 5 when my father took me to a dojo (training hall) in London where he trained in Judo. I began my own journey over 30 years ago with the Australian Federation of Wu Style Tai Chi Inc. I furthered my studies of martial arts with a very strenuous year with Kentokan Karate. I have also trained extensively with Master Liu Wan Chun in Melbourne, Master Wang Zie Ping in Yangshuo, China and Grand Master Lu in Bei Dai He, China.

Tai Chi has become my way of life and I hope to spread the knowledge and benefits of this gentle martial art for many more years.

Thank you for visiting my website.

Blessings, Patricia”
