Safe. We have one primary rule: No one has the right to harm you. You do not have the right to harm anyone.
In all matters of self-defense, it is best to be like a guardrail, a clear limit that is visible and powerful. You see
this in how we address conflict, sparring, and fighting in the school. No harm training.
Authentic: We have two martial arts in one school. One for your mind and one for your body. Unless you lack
one, you need both. We use them together, because that’s how people work from Center. The Conscious

Fun: Between rounds of training and exploring, we laugh. A lot.
Powerful: The Chinese understanding of Power is very different than the American understanding of Chinese
power. Find out for yourself
Empowering: We show you how to access the power you need for the life you seek. Your power, Conscious
Fighting Power, Shen Power, Tai Chi Power. Once you find it and build it, we assist you in moving it into your

our fitness, train self-defense, gain mastery of ourselves, improve our relationships, master martial arts, build
our dreams, and fight our fights. It is the pattern we use for everything we do. We find the power we need, we
build the power, we mind it, THEN, when conditions are ready, we move

power, resilience, health, energy, prosperity, and happiness. Clean, renewable, you! For people who want
change and are ready for something new, different, and effective.
