Dean Williams, Executive Coach and Co-Founder at the Business Coaching Academy

“Stan and Dave/Masters Black supported us recently at two team leadership events focused on managing stress and anxiety. The sessions were great and the teams enjoyed learning new techniques focused on the power of the mind and discipline, practising forms and movements designed to combat stress. This was a bespoke, fun and physical session supporting the wellbeing of our senior operational leaders – bringing new energy into the room, we highly recommend them!”.

The Centre offers unique fitness classes, spa and beauty treatments, sports massage, physiotherapy and reflexology to the local businesses and residents. Kung Focus Chi Kung classes as well as Wing Chun Dynamics Kung Fu are now exclusive to Tileyard Studios in London!

In April 2018, Master Dave Taylor opened a full time centre in the heart Worcester called Chi Studio – he now offers Human Performance and Focus using unique training methods and Kung Fu Psychology. Dave is now linked with some high profile companies looking to increase the human performance of their elite staff and athletes.

September 2016

It has been some time since our last newsletter as there has been a lot of great things happening this summer.

We have now taken up a fortnightly residence at Fort Dunlop in the Midlands teaching regular corporate classes ranging from Kung Fu to Chi Kung to personal safety and awareness. Feedback has been great and we look forward to building our reputation further throughout the year.

Our classes at Fort Dunlop are open to all neighbouring companies too, not just Fort Dunlop residents. Get in touch if you want to join in and experience Kung Fu… but not as you know it!

In August we opened a full time Midlands training centre in Droitwich Spa, a town in northern Worcestershire, England. Bespoke seminars and training on Kung Fu, Chi Kung and Kung Focus will take place throughout the year.

London clients have doubled over the summer with some excellent leads to follow up for corporate events. The word is spreading far and wide so watch this space.

Thanks again to all our existing clients as their success is our success!


Masters Black is one year old… delivering thousand year old practices

| by | General | 0 comments

Today marks one year since we officially launched Masters Black at the Cube in Birmingham. Thanks again to all those that joined and supported us.

The first year in any business can be difficult and we have found the support of previous and new clients has made this a great year for us.

We have some big things ahead for us this coming year.  Inquiries have been coming in from the West Coast of the US and Australia to deliver corporate events and human development training.

Mindfulness, focus and emotional resilience are becoming increasingly important in large corporations and we are looking to support existing development programmes as well as create new and exciting ones harnessing the power of Kung Fu and Chi Kung!
