I teach at 5 massachusetts chinese schools traditional 3 styles of kung fu and tai chi, budo on the side

Methodology

for kids, I hide the learning in games, and stories

for the adults I strive to make their strengths stronger their weaknesses strong,
make them well rounded martial artists EG
stretching, meditation, punching, kicking, breaking, sticks, swords, knives, martial arts history, chinese culture, sparring grappling, classical literature on strategy, etc.

Background

premise:

martial arts is a way of life,
martial arts skills learned can be applied to everyday situations.(balancing, reactions, strategies, ethics, etc.)
students are taught how solve problems peacefully, and outwit life's problems rather than outfight life's problems.
any common person can fight, it takes a special person to create peace from fighting.


bio:

I grew up in the greater boston metropolitain area,
and started studying martial arts in the 1970s.
by the early 1990's I was a sensei in goshuryu kenbujutsu and gendai jujitsu.

Serendepity allowed me to become
a student of the Great Mr. Chan at the old praying mantis school on washington st in quincy.
there I learned choy lay fut kung fu, tai chi (chen and yang)
there I also learned leung ying kung fu from Mr Chan's lifelong friend Nima mansour.
after Mr. Chan retired I was given the honor of teaching at the Newon cantonese school.
My Kung fu brother Joe cheverie allowed me to teach at the sharon chinese school.
My experiences from those schools then opened a door at the westwood chinese school, the wellesley chinese school
and the brookline chinese school.
I taught Jujitsu and karate at Linx enrichment in wellesley from 2009-2020
avocationaly I work in concert halls and night clubs,, and some defense contracts on the side
