- Tristram Pinney is a talented artist, musician, and long-time student of Sinclair Martial Arts.
He will be leaving to attend OCAD University next week. Before he leaves, he is honouring us with a display of his artwork.
“Exhibited will be a series of paintings, inkings and sketches (as well as an oddball sculpture or two). But beyond that I am pleased to be able to scatter the evening with the acts and input of some marvellous people, with whom I am so lucky to be acquainted. There will be music and martial arts forms fleshing the night (plus beverage and nibble to bolster your collective spirit). Do come. You shan’t regret it.”

‘We heard about him years ago. But we said, ”He is in Orillia. How good can he be?”’
- Dr. Matthew Allen PHD, (author and educator)
“...without a doubt, one of the very best teachers (of any subject) that I have known and a gifted artist who has remained faithful to his art”
- Sam Masich (International martial arts champion, teacher, and ﬁlm-maker)
“It's a privilege to study with progressive, forward thinking instructors, solidly rooted in the traditional fundamentals. Ian's hard work in both directions makes him a great teacher and guide.”
- A. Au
“I’d love to have a teacher like this in Australia”
- Gord: Educator, Newmarket, Ontario
“Among the numerous changes and improvement over a period of 12 months was the disappearance of a rotator cuff problem. Where I had limited range of motion with pain and the prospect of continuing limitations without surgery, I now have full range of motion with no pain...a very grateful 68 year old. Thanks Ian!!”
- D. Reed
“I wish you were closer”
John Lebarr (Singer songwriter, carpenter) Washago, Canada
“It is very easy for me to say good things about my instructor, Ian Sinclair. Previous to my two years of Tai chi training, I suffered with joint pain and lack of energy. At 48 years of age I felt like 68. After a few months the stiffness in my joints was gone, my balance improved as well as my outlook on life. I wish I had more time to practise, but even a half hour per day makes me feel good. Ian knows his stuff and is a dedicated teacher with the proper philosophy.”
- P.K. Ong
“The best teacher out there.”
- Roben Goodfellow (Writer, researcher, film maker)Toronto
Having met and worked with many martial arts instructors over the years, I can say without hesitation that Ian Sinclair is one of the best we've encountered. The reason for this, I feel, is his ability to communicate clearly and thoroughly the wealth of knowledge he's accumulated over the years to a wide array of people. He's able to cater instruction to each individual in the class without taking away from the collective experience of the group. He lives his art, and his calm presence and sharp wit make for an enjoyable learning experience. We look forward to working with Ian in the future both for our own study and to consult with our actors on future film projects. He offers amazing value, is a trustworthy resource and an excellent human being."
- Jay Fletcher - Practitioner of Tai-Chi Chuan since 2002
(Ian Sinclair) has always been a patient and supportive instructor with a compassionate, relaxed disposition and a willingness to go the extra distance for people who demonstrate their commitment to Wushu. May the universe bring you great success and joy!”
- Adam Chan - (Author of Climbing Mountains and Eating Punches.) Chief instructor of Pragmatic Martial Arts
“Ian Sinclair is amazing. In my opinion he is one of the few modern tai chi stylists who understands and researches the martial side of tai chi. His push hands skills is amazing and he can extend this ability to applications.”
- Jason Ward: Martial Arts Instructor: International Chinese Martial Arts Research Society, International Genkidokai
“... immediately I was impressed with his knowledge and skill of the Chinese Martial Arts. In my experience there are only a small handful of individuals in Canada who can teach Tai Chi at the level of Master Sinclair. Even fewer can teach Tai Chi with the same level of humility that he represents. If you were to pick the top 5 instructors of Tai Chi in Canada, your list would have to include Master Ian Sinclair.”
- F. Hamaguchi: Software Developer - Vancouver
“I wish I could find another tai chi instructor like him here.”
