What's Your Goal?

Do you want to improve your health and wellness ? Maximize your martial arts? Control your weight? Turn back the clock? Identify the areas you want to improve and let me guide you on the right path. Using the correct combination of my DVDs and resources will deliver your desired results. Shaolin Martial Arts challenges us and helps us to reach the full potential in ourselves that we only dreamt of before. Using the powerful life energy that exists inside our body, we can make ourselves healthy and balanced.

Health and Wellness

The Western focus on exercise has mainly been on making the body look beautiful through weight and cardio training. But this is starting to change. On the Oprah Winfrey show, Dr. Oz said, "If you want to be healthy and live to 100, do Qigong." How can Shaolin Monks train all their lives, while remaining free of injury and looking younger than their years? How can they be beaten with bricks or sticks and not feel any pain? 

The answer is a magical combination of Qigong and Kung Fu. Qigong strengthens the immune system, rejuvenates the internal organs and protects and prevents premature effects of ageing. The Qigong Massage enhances the power of Qigong, helping the Qi and blood to flow properly, while strengthening the bones and keeping the skin soft and supple.

The wearing of Jade helps to banish the harmful effects of the environment. Just as a tree can purify the air, jade has healing powers; helping to purify the body and protect us against the harmful effects of computers, mobile phones or negative energy. It acts as a gentle reminder to us that we are Urban Shaolin Warriors. This means we take time to step back, relax and rejuvenate. Living in the moment is a powerful skill that helps us to be successful in everything we do.

Lose Weight
There are many workout plans that claim to be able to help you lose weight in two weeks, eight weeks or twelve weeks but what about after that time?  How many exercise bikes have been bought then discarded? How many gym memberships not used? 

 The Shaolin Approach is to quit relying on willpower. Willpower is like petrol. It quickly runs out.  But when willpower transforms into habit, you can slim down effortlessly and get your body into great shape.

Any workout programme will help you lose weight. The trick is to find something you enjoy. If you enjoy it, you will stick with it, and it will become a habit. Keep it simple. Don't think too much. I love Kung Fu so I do Kung Fu but if I loved ballet I'd do ballet.

Once you've found the workout you enjoy, do Qigong at least three times a week. Qigong is an important factor in weight loss because it helps to balance the hormones. An increase in cortisol for example, can mean that no matter how hard you work out, you will always have belly fat. But liposuction isn't necessary. Just do Qigong. If you find the slow movements boring then do Qigong For Upper Body and alternate this with Lower Body. This will give your internal organs a workout while toning your muscles at the same time.

Turn back The Clock

I don't think it's true that you are as old as you feel, I think you are as old as your body feels! So make it feel good. People who do Qigong have higher levels of an enzyme that protects cells against the build-up of a highly toxic free radical, which can cause ageing.

If you're new to Qigong then start with The Eight Treasures. Once you've learnt this, do some movements from The Qigong For Upper Body and Qigong For Lower Body. Yes, it's tough but it will strengthen your bones and help prevent osteoporosis. It's especially important to do these Qigong's if you're not doing any weight bearing exercise.

 Wear jade. Chinese Jade Jewelry has been used by the Chinese for many thousands of years. We believe that Chinese Jade has the power to bring longevity, good health and peace of mind into our life.

Maximize Your Martial Arts

Thousands of years ago, Warrior monks spent their time in the mountains studying nature and seeing how they could maximize their martial arts. Usually when something becomes old it is put in the bin, but the Shaolin training has grown in value because it contains something of great value. It is a valuable jewel that has been passed down to us by our great Chinese masters. The jewel is right here; we just need to start the training so that we can discover the jewel for ourselves.

 My Shaolin DVDs will transform your mind and body into the mind and body of a Shaolin Warrior, and I teach you how to do this step by step
