A Chat with Immortal Kung Fu
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I may be the only instructor in Arizona with certifications from a grand master who is on the board of the Sokeship council, the “most elite council of grandmasters in the world.” I have a triple sash in all three internal martial arts; Tai Ji, Xing Yi and Ba Gua. Shao Lin is my current focus.
Is your location strictly for adults, or can kids participate as well?
Anyone of any age can learn any of the internal arts. Shao Lin Kung Fu requires more flexibility and endurance so it is recommended for those under 35 primarily. There are exceptions but in general, all ages and all ability levels are welcome and will benefit from my orthodox trainings style.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been training for over ten years without teaching. My goal has always been and will continue to be, to excel my personal growth first and foremost. I am Grandmaster Dr. Torres’ top student and he recommends I teach others to gain deeper insight about my own ability to lead and instruct.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to help people achieve new physical abilities. I have had several students learn how to touch their toes for the first time in years. I love teaching people how to flow. I’m happy helping others lose weight. Most of all, I love building peoples confidence and martial arts skills.
