WHO ARE YOU?
Many people ask what Body Mind Systems is about.
We help students have a strong mind and body to have success over life’s challenges.
We help students learn about who they are and upgrade the parts of their lives they want to improve.
Training with Body Mind Systems is an opportunity to learn more about you through developing your mind and body. A strong mind and body allow you to accomplish anything you desire. This is a reason martial arts continues to be a tool to help humanity survive, grow, and thrive.
WHY DO YOU NEED WILLPOWER?
The more your willpower is strengthened through martial arts training, the more you grow your confidence as you meet and exceed your limits. Repeated focus of your willpower towards your goals combined with patience builds determination. In combination with martial arts forms and movement, you protect yourself not only against an attacker but from the negative aspects of your lifestyle, environment, and age.
WHO TRAINS AT BODY MIND SYSTEMS?
Body Mind Systems students are leaders. They are often doctors, nurses, attorneys, engineers, entrepreneurs, scientists, investors, managers, university deans and provosts, and business owners. Students are also often parents and involved in charities and the community. They understand that to better lead others, they have to lead themselves first.
As they dramatically develop as a person, many students have used their training to start companies, improve their leadership and management skills, increase their income, gain a promotion at work.
BODY MIND SYSTEMS TRAINING
As a new student, you rejuvenate the body through “warrior” training. You learn self-defense against a physical attacker. Over time, the student extends their longevity through practicing different types of short forms including their kung fu practice. Over time, the student cultivates their qi through their main forms (long forms) as well as their tai chi, weapons and bagua practices.
Training utilizes 3 internal, 3 external and 2 weapon styles (Kong Su Do (Karate/Tae Kwon Do), Aikido/Hapkido (Chin Na), Yudo (Judo), Kung Fu, Bagua Zhang, Tai Chi (Taiji/Qi Gong), Kom Do (Samurai Sword), and Ship Pal Gye (traditional Chinese weapons training)). These styles encompass the major martial arts and medicinal principles one needs to protect the human body at an above average level.
At a higher level, students often teach what they have learned to cultivate their wisdom. This is the start of their “scholar” training to explore in depth how martial arts forms and movements affect one’s mental and physical development. This can only be done through helping others.
Beyond the scholar level, the master student learns the “sage” part of their training and how to perpetuate their knowledge and wisdom through training other instructors to train other instructors. The highest level students are always instructors.
Body Mind Systems is the current generation of an ancient education system to not only learn and apply the benefits of martial arts, but how to perpetuate martial arts for the benefit of humanity in the future.
All life has qi (“chi”); qi gong cultivates one’s qi through any combination of seated, standing or moving practices (“energy work”). Qi gong is the ancient Chinese art and science of becoming aware of this life energy and learning how to control its flow through a precise choreography of posture, movement, respiratory technique, and meditation. Like biofeedback, qi gong teaches psycho physiological self- regulation; the student becomes aware and can control their body including blood pressure, respiratory rate, blood flow, immune system, and organ health.
