Welcome to Yiheyuan Martial Arts
On Tuesday 17th May, at Leeds Civic Hall, Yolande Sowerby was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation award by the Lord Mayor of Leeds, Thomas Murray, for the voluntary work she has done teaching Tai Chi to help to prevent arthritis in older people and to help those already suffering from arthritis to maintain and improve their mobility.
Yolande was nominated for the award by Age UK. She told us: "I had a great time and felt honoured to be chosen."
This award was very well-deserved and it is our privilege to have Yolande among us as a Yiheyuan Instructor.
Another of our instructors,
gained a further two silver medals for fixed and moving step push hands and a bronze in the open weight category at the London Championships this weekend.
Well done Ben!
