About Jim

My Martial Background

I have been training martial arts for 44 years at this point with the focus being on Chinese internal martial arts of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan,Jian, Dao, Gun, Qiang , Hsing I Chuan, I Chuan , Pakua Chang , Tai Chi Ruler , Tung Style Fast Tai Chi Chuan, and various Taoist Internal training methods , and Chi Kung , Nei Kung , Breathing methods , An Mo self massage etc.

I have successfully helped people with very serious diseases from cancer to osteonecrosis over the last 14 years.

My focus initially was on the martial art aspects and, as I began to see the pedigree of the arts I was learning, I started to work very hard at obtaining them. I am a follower of the duality of these arts which brought me into the healing aspect of these arts which has been a great part of my focus over the years . I don’t believe one part is more important than the other; they are two parts of the same coin.

My teachers in order of appearance all came from the William CC Chen school of Tai Chi Chuan  with  the exception of Sifu Adam Mizner :
