Hi my name is Bruce Marcus, and I'd like to share some of the knowledge I've gained studying the martial arts for the last 40 years.
Always drawn to the beautiful postures, and the flowing routines in Tai Chi, I started to the appreciate the genius and intricacy hidden within them. Constantly looking for the real usage of what I was seeing, the mystery started to reveal itself in many "eye opening" ways.
I heard about the mysterious sister arts of Baguazhang and Hsing-i Chuan and became extremely curious. I soon realized the principles that my teacher Rich Raab taught me also carried over to these other arts, I just found that tremendously valuable and fascinating at the same time and wanted to know more.
I felt like I discovered gold, and I couldn't get enough...
I decided to devote my entire life to the study of these hidden treasures from China.
The Internal Arts are also known as Neijia, and I would love to share them with you.
Let's Explore These Fascinating Arts Together
Mr. BP Chan was one of the first to bring these arts into this country in the mid 1970's.
Rich Raab was one of Mr. Chan's original students.
I've been fortunate to know Rich since my childhood. My teacher now for over 40 years. I've had the pleasure of learning Tai Chi Chuan, Baguazhang, Hsing-i Chuan, I Chuan, and Qigong from him.
I had pain shooting down my arms and legs...I didn't know what to do. I was desperate, and ready to try anything.
Bruce taught me one of his "standing sets" to help me release the tension in my neck, and back.
Over time gravity helped to separate the space between the discs in my spine. This helped the impingement of the nerves that was causing me so much pain.
I had been away from practice for a few years and was starting to feel stiff, and out of sorts for awhile. I took a chance and started working out at Bruce's School. My Tai Chi Form is taking on so many new dimensions, and layers of understanding. You see what's great is that Bruce just doesn't teach sequences of moves, he teaches principles that you can immediately apply to your art.
I now have more flexibility than I've ever had in my life, and I just feel stronger, more centered, and in control.
