In 2010 Spirit Dragon Institute started offering online lessons so that people interested in the arts could study no matter where they are in the world.
A short list on his major teachers of traditional Chinese Kung fu may be found at http://spiritdragoninstitute.com.
He also has a Masters Degree in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.
About his work he writes: "In addition to the obvious benefits of traditional training such as self preservation, self defense, and health maintenance it is my belief that these ancient practices are still very much relevant in today's modern society as a means getting in touch with and staying in touch with the inner workings of the body, as a means of exploring the relationship and interaction of the mind and body, and as a way to explore and understand the natural world and our place in it."
