Wu Wei Studio has been established as a dedicated tai chi and internal arts development and practice space by Juergen Kurtz.

Juergen Kurtz

CPE (Cambridge), BD Hons (London), PGCPSE (Open), Instructor (TCUGB)


Juergen was born in Germany and has lived in the Shetland Isles since 1999, where he has been involved with the development and delivery of community services. He has a study background in languages, philosophy, religions, education, psychology and internal martial arts. He is also a seasoned marathon runner and plays volleyball with his team Globetrotters.


For many years Juergen has been studying advanced full curriculum Yang Style Tai Chi (solo & partner, bare-hand & weapons) with Master Sam Masich, one of the most accomplished mid-generation internal martial arts practitioner in the world and IWSD recognised 8th Level Black Belt. Juergen is one of Sam's instructor students and spends regular intensive study time with him. Juergen is also a fully licensed and insured qigong, health and martial tai chi instructor with TCUGB


Juergen's holistic body-mind tai chi courses and his integrative coaching approach can make tai chi and the internal martial arts physically and intellectually accessible to anyone that would like to explore their deeper aspects as a rich source for personal development.
