The leg of this journey takes me back to college in 1984. While attempting to become a professional musician, I began to take classes in traditional martial arts and qigong meditation. These opened my eyes to a new way of moving, a new way of being. Over the course of the next ten years I studied with several masters, received a couple of black belts and a lot of experience. I began to teach my own classes always with the emphasis of body awareness, structural integrity and clear thought. Still something was missing. I remembered hearing that the old world masters would always say " Easy it is to hurt someone, Harder it is to heal", so after 20 years of martial practice it was time to go back to school.
