With Freedom of Motion comes the possibility to express mind & body more dynamically through Movement

It’s like a dance

It’s fun

When I do that I don’t think about martial art or doing a movement

Just move
Feeling everything
— Pak IeIe

This is a natural progression

A uniquely broad and holistic movement system:

  • Foundations: a variety of strikes, blocks, kicks, sweeps, and lower gate footwork explorations

  • Floor work: movement on the floor (rolling and tumbling, falling safely, snake style sweeps, and lower gate transitions)

  • Short movements: flowing whole-body movements

  • Long movements: longer movement sequences with unique rhythm and flow, each embodying a specific movement character (e.g. white crane, tiger, dragon, snake, monkey, arhat, and many others)

  • Dragon Gate movements: shorter sequences distilling the essence of long movements

  • Health movements: Harmony or Health Movements are practiced with a focus on sensitivity and suppleness, as well as breath

  • Weapons: broad range of traditional weapons, such as staff, sword, cane, etc.

Importantly, the martial heritage provides structural integrity and guides Movement expression

Purpose equally emphasizes health impact, energy development, and the harmony of mind, body and spirit

There is no guess work and random exploration

All Movements are elements within an integrated system and reinforce each other. This system has been honed and refined over centuries and passed down from generation to generation. It’s passed the test of time
