Sam Lee Contact Details


I knew very quickly how lucky I was to have such a brilliant teacher, as by the fourth class I could see a marked improvement in my health. Prior to going to Sam's class, I had asked my doctor, was I always going to have pain like this? He said, this is as good as it gets! — Sile
I found him to be an excellent instructor and I believe the exercises and his support played a considerable part in my recovery and good health and energy. — Edward
I had been studying Chi Kung with Sam Lee for 6 months following my tumour surgery. I decided to try this as I had felt very weak. I felt a total lack of internal energy. We would meet twice a week. Soon after we had started training I felt my energy begin to fill my body again. Sam's professional attitude as well as his precious remarks and positive energy helped me recover very quickly. — Danguole
Sam is an unique individual, very warm and keen to share his knowledge. He is an amazing teacher and inspires his students. — David
