Health & Wellness

Our approach uses a combination of tai chi, chi kung, kung fu, and associated health/wellness philosophy and general practices, in order to take ownership of the true meaning of self defense, e.g.: “The true meaning of self-defense is self-defense against our own weaknesses and bad habits.” It is much about “true health through true responsibility.” Our primary goal is student wellness, e.g. wellness of the body, mind, and spirit.

Martial Arts

The Lotus Flower Blossoms

“There is a place where, wherever you are there, whatever you are doing…no matter what, in any given moment, there should be nowhere you would rather be. It is where you are right now – and you have the ability to so deeply and artfully appreciate your life and its living…to connect one healthful insight to the next, and make them all one…learning to witness this already-existing truth.

In the wilderness of our existence…a place of budding flowers about, about to unwrap in a showing of perfect appreciation for all to thrive upon, we are the flowers which can blossom again and again in each season of our deeper and deeper insights…all connected…each better and more healthful than before.

It is not unlike Heaven and it can become Heaven, with enough insight and appreciation. It takes quite a few sparks, glimpses – spine-tingling moments as a way-of-life which becomes more and more purposeful, more and more without time or space or distance. More and more there is less and less to hide behind.”
