The founder of Aikido was one of the great martial artists in history, and Morihiro Saito was one of his top students. Through this lineage, our members have access to some of the great martial arts practitioners. Our style is known for a step by step approach learning self defense basics against strong grabs up to the highest level of martial arts training. In addition, Morihiro Saito was the only Aikido master certified to teach the Aikido founder's complete weapons system. Please visit our main website for more information.
"Original QiGong" (Chi Gung), is a non-violent, Asian martial art, that offers students easy postures and movements for daily, at-home practice. QiGong tends to promote healing, physical and mental development, peacefulness, strong immunity, greater creativity, "unusual" abilities, and can also open hidden, innate gifts. Our method offers only what is necessary and most efficient for best individual results. Later, students can join "Free-Flow" group practice, for a more dynamic, shared immersion in Qi (Chi) energy. In all situations, one can also opt to receive individually-focused healing applications from us, which are included in all classes.
Master Cheng Hsiang Yu was perhaps the best Tai Chi master in the New York area. He combined an older style of the Yang Tai Chi form with Shaolin Kung Fu for a complete system of health and self defense. Our system focuses on his Tai Chi methods, and uses the Aikido weapons system to focus on proper use of martial force. We can also lead students to the study of Shaolin forms as Master Yu designed as well as Chi Gung training for health and wellness. Please visit our main website for more information.
