Master Matthew Staley is the lineage holder for 6 different martial arts systems. He is our walking encyclopedia of martial arts knowledge.
Baguazhang is known for it's circuling ability to fight as many as 8 opponents at once; hsing-i is ridiculously aggressive in its never retreat methods; and TaijiQuan (Tai Chi Chaun) is translated as “Grand Ultimate Fist”. Needless to say, those who train the internal arts are seeking martial abilities that many would consider to be super-human.
But you will find that many people enjoy the graceful movements, the moving meditation, and the well-being they experience after training in these arts.
To increase your personal power, your confidence, and to boost your personal health, give the internal martial arts under Matthew Staley, Shifu a try..
