About the Speaker

Devdan Sen

devdan@me.com

Devdan began Tai Chi in the early 1980s while a student at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. He returned to Tai Chi in the mid-1990s and studied with the late Master Akira Lim. Today, he continues to study Tai Chi and Kung Fu with Stephen Lim, the current master of the Lim School of Martial Arts. Devdan follows the traditional approach of the Yang style focusing on the long form of 108 movements. He also has a wide knowledge of shorter forms, Tai Chi sword and Qiqong (Chi Kung) and practices various forms of Kung Fu.

This is all a far cry from a previous existence of studying to be an ethno-musicologist and teaching Indian classical music, which he continues to do occasionally. Devdan edited the first Asian arts magazine in the UK and then went on to be a travel writer freelancing with the Rough Guides for 20 years, specialising on India. He was one of four original authors for the Rough Guide to India.

Having grown up in the Himalayas, Devdan loves mountaineering and climbing and now does the occasional stint as a ski instructor at weekends and helps with disability snow sports.
