Experience to help you...
Whether you have come to ZenArts to improve your health, better deal with daily stress, find deep inner peace, work on your fitness or learn how to defend yourself and build confidence, I will help you on the right training path.
As a therapist for more than 20 years and a teacher of martial arts, Qigong, meditation and yoga I help students improve their alignment, posture, movement, energy levels, and resilience and pass on the best methods I personally use to live life more in the flow.
If you are looking to make positive changes in your health, mobility, relief of pain and discomfort, then the A-Way Health & Wellbeing class is an ideal, gentle approach to help you. A-Way uses simple and effective methods from Qigong, Yoga, Meditation, Therapy and Healing in an easy to follow along with class.

Awakening the Dragon Courses with Grandmaster Kai Uwe Jettkandt in Bognor Regis
Taoist training on the way to immortality, theory and practice
- Yang Shen - Theory and Practice of Taoist (Daoist) Nourishing Life Concept
- Dao Yin - The so called "Chinese Yoga" before it became Qigong (Chi Kung)
- Neigong - The Way of Advanced Qigong
- Neidan - Inner Cultivation - The Taoist Way towards Immortality
"Training with Sifu Kai felt holistic-training mind body spirit all at once. I loved the teaching methodology of theory and then practice and spaaaaace 😉 for it to all sink in. The direct Zen teachings are more relatable to the ‘layman’. I loved the lightheartedness of the teaching and experience and the joy that Sifu Kai created was wonderful- we all felt freer to ‘just be our true selves’. I loved how the questions were answered directly and each student was given that one on one attention. I learnt so much not only for myself but also for the students that I will have in my class in the near future which I’m deeply grateful for."
It is always uplifting and enlightening with Tim’s classes. I have started a course of Qi Gong and Kung at Waltham House Studios in Bognor yesterday evening, and loved it. Can’t wait for next Monday.
Very friendly group and excellent instruction from Tim, left feeling energised and woke up this morning with a clear mind and body lacking the aches and pains which have built up over the past few months. Really looking forward to going again next week and learning more.
Future in the Making...
The Cause of Health -
Your Practical Guide of Collective Wisdom for a Healthy, Successful & Enriching Life
From the outside, it could appear that our health system has failed us when considering the increase in diseases, illness and escalating costs. However, it’s not that simple.
As a therapist working in the field of mind/body/energy medicine, I am fascinated by health, particularly:
- Why it is that some people develop health-related conditions
- Why some people recover, whereas others don’t bounce back
- Why various therapeutic or traditional health modalities don’t always work for all people
- Why some people are much more resilient against falling ill or suffering from stress-related illness in the first place
- What practical, everyday steps, methods or interventions anyone can use to improve health
I believe it is not the lack of health information and knowledge out there that is the problem, but our failure to successfully and consistently apply the collective wisdom that is available to us.
If we are going to change this situation around, not just for us, but for our future generations, then something needs to shift... and I have a vision of what the future of health will look like.

Our aim to continue to preserve and pass on the legacy of genuine arts as taught by our Sifu, Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit.
Zen Arts are the local school in Chichester for Shaolin Wahnam, teaching Internal Shaolin and Wudang Arts, including Shaolin Kung Fu, Taijiquan, Qigong and Zen. ’Internal' means you learn and practice at the level of Jing (body), Chi (energy) and Shen (Mind) - The triple unity. If your training lacks any one of these components then your practice is incomplete.
In practising these traditional arts we experience the many benefits reported in the ‘classics’, such as increased energy, clearer mind, overcoming of illnesses, better health, resilience, peace of mind and a greater connection with the world around us.
Sifu Tim Franklin
I am a direct student of Sifu Wong (Grandmaster Wong Kiew Kit) and official instructor of Shaolin Wahnam, having trained in the Shaolin Arts since 2002. My initial introduction to martial art though was more than 35 years ago. As a child, I was fascinated by how the masters were so healthy, vibrant with energy, courageous yet humble and also kind and helpful to others.
Since then I have trained in a number of systems and styles, most directly from Sifu Wong, including Shaolin Five Animal, Choy Li Fatt, Choe Family Wing Choon, Drunken Eight Immortals, Taijiquan, Xingyi, weapons and the Cotton Art. In 2018 it was a great honour to have been awarded position Wu Fat – (lineage holder) of Cotton Palm Art.
Since 1999 I have been helping people overcome pain, illness and blockages with therapy and subsequently Shaolin Arts. From 2004 I have been running regular classes and workshops teaching Shaolin Kung Fu and Qigong. From 2018, in addition to Zen Yoga classes, I have been running focused health and wellbeing workshops and talks, passing on the methods I have learnt and use, known as collectively as A-Way Therapy, and work as an Associate Lecturer of Tai Chi for Mind-Body Connection and Resilience at Chichester University.
