Understanding the martial arts journey. Martial arts has a rich history of passing down knowledge through stories. We seek to enrich the martial artists journey through passing down the stories and oral traditions or the arts.

We teach a very rare and nearly lost form of Kung Fu called Shou' Shu'. An eight animal system once only taught to a very select few. We seek to spread the knowledge of Shou' Shu' to many so that many can reap it's benefits.

    Suppression and Censorship in the Martial Arts

    Suppression and Censorship in the Martial Arts

    The martial arts have had a long history of suppression and censorship. This has led to literally hundreds or maybe even thousands of martial arts being lost. Completely erased. 

    These were ancient bodies of knowledge with great benefit to humanity. All gone except for a very few. All due to various forms of suppression and censorship. This episode will give you a look into how this was done and the results. At least from my limited and somewhat ignorant perspective.

    If you want to begin learning one of the only known arts to survive this suppression you can get beginner classes  at

    The Only Solution To Violence

    Those who are repressing their violent nature, which is a part of their true nature, are inadvertently making the world a more violent place.

    The Beast

    The Beast

    There is an emotion that is not human but is. We just don't recognize it as such. In the degrees of Shifu we have always called it "Becoming the Beast". That refers to the feeling in each individual beast. But there is a more generic form of it we can call "The Beast". If we train in the right way and with a good heart we can achieve it. 

    Dr Jordan Peterson often refers to being a monster under his own control. This is that. This is how that is achieved. It is a thing of immense personal power.

    Note: The book I referred to and couldn't remember is called "Thick Face, Black Heart"

    Cobra Chi Gung - Lesson 1

    Cobra Chi Gung - Lesson 1

    This is the first lesson in our Cobra Chi Gung course. 
    This is an ancient fighting art which was thought to be lost. At least that's what the history books say. Fortunately, it was not lost. Just safely hidden away.
    The principles taught are the same principles taught in Shou' Shu' Cobra Kung Fu (Boli Yan Shi). However, in the Chi Gung course, there is less focus on application. Some understanding of application is necessary though, even if you are only interested in the health aspects.
    The motions used are the larger, more pronounced cobra motions. Like a snake slowly meandering through the grass on a sunny day. Yet these same motions, if tightened up, form the basis for the fast hitting fighting art of Shou' Shu' Cobra.
