Hsing-i encourages the student to accept the incoming energy that is being offered in an attack, and turn that energy around without thought into an effective counter attack.
Mr. BP Chan (above) was one of the first to bring Hsing-i Chuan 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.
A Few Very Nice Testimonials From Former Students
"I was frustrated with my lack of progress in my Tai Chi and Qigong practice. It seemed like no matter what I did I wasn't advancing in my skills. I thought I had hit the ceiling of my Tai Chi abilities. After taking Bruce's Class the quality and true understanding of this art that I hold so dear was completely transformed! My approach to studying at home was taken to a new height.... But not just that, my performance was significantly improved."
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'll be forever grateful.
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. Your the Best!
