Brooke follows in the Tiedazhang tradition (Tieda means fall and hit, Zhang means Doctor, also known as Bone-Setter). This is a long standing tradition of martial arts healers who specialise in injuries.
Qigong is also an integral part of Brooke’s practice.

Brooke’s approach as a practitioner and teacher is clear, simple and down to earth. He breaks down often confusing Eastern concepts in ways which can be applied in everyday life.
