were brought to this country by Professor Li Kam Chan and the
traditions of the style were passed on to his adopted nephew Chee Soo.
Arts Organisation (TAO) was created after the death of Professor Chee
Soo (pictured left) in 1994. Tony Swanson (one of Prof. Chee Soo's two
most senior students) was asked by a group of over 30 Instructors to
organise and head an association to carry on the traditions of the Li
family. As a result the TAO was set up to be administered by a committee
which was voted for by the members of the organisation.
'The TAO is dedicated to teaching the Li Family Style of Health and Martial Arts as taught by the late Professor Chee Soo.'
