Glenn Skotdal   

Instructor Glenn Skotdal has taught martial arts to students of all ages for over twenty-five years and brings a broad, well-rounded perspective to his teaching of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong.

Glenn began his martial arts journey in the early 1980's in the martial art of Uechi Ryu Karate. This quest has continued with the study of Goju Kai Karate, Ju-Jitsu, Wing Chun Kung Fu, Chin Min Gong Chi Kung Fu and Tai Chi Chuan. Instructor Skotdal currently holds a Fifth Degree Black Belt in Ju-Jitsu, Second Degree Black Sash in Chin Min Gong Chi Kung Fu and Level Five in Wing Chun Kung Fu.  

In 1991, Glenn was first introduced to Tai Chi Chuan by Sifu Martin Mellish while recuperating from a martial arts related knee injury.  The training with Sifu Mellish included instruction in both the Yang and Chen styles of Tai Chi Chuan. More recently, Glenn has had the privilege of training in Yang style Tai Chi Chuan with Master Ron Jorgensen.  Master Jorgensen is an accomplished instructor with more than thirty-five years of teaching Yang style Tai Chi Chuan and Yoga.

Master Jorgensen is a longtime student of Grandmaster William C. C. Chen who currently is teaching in New York and holds seminars around the world to promote is Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan. As a young person, Grandmaster Chen was a live-in student of Grandmaster Cheng Man Ching and an instructor under his tutelage.

In addition to teaching at Meridian Tai Chi, Glenn continues his personal growth in Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong through ongoing personal training as well as the study and exploration of other styles of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong, their concepts and techniques.
