World Tai Ji Day was a success and I got some good experience training others and also learning how I am as a teacher to them. Now I study for my 4th degree and nothing gets in the way. My training is first. In early July, I plan to start offering lessons as Shi Fu.
Lineage in the Kwok Family system is very important. All of our systems are conservatively preserved as taught from master to student in order to preserve the art as in our Kung Fu tradition. I, Nicolas Ricardo Guillermo, preserve the original arts as transmitted to me from Dr. Torres, who is our Kwok family head of lineage. In order to preserve the art, all students I accept will be required to carry on the tradition with the same expectations set before me, from our lineage heritage, in order to become a qualified instructor, recognized Shi Fu (Father Teacher), Fu Zi (Master) and even Shi Gong (Grand Master) of the Kwok Family system.
My name is Nicolas R. Guillermo and I seek to help you learn how to build a deeper connection with yourself, to learn how to master Kung Fu and seize opportunities to control your own destiny.
Kung Fu is a way of life for longevity, it's not just about fighting. The various martial arts are a means of connecting the mind and body with the spirit, to learn about your eternal position as a immortal spirit soul.
The best martial art skill is not gained by fighting with others, but by conquering our own obstacles that define physical, mental and spiritual limitations. We learn about our true selves by studying laws and principles of how the universe works and applying them to our everyday lives.
The Immortal Kung Fu Academy is inspired by Taoism, Buddhism and Yoga.
Philosophy, delivered through the martial arts, will help people better understand laws of nature, society and human spirituality. Our goal is to teach others as the great masters of kung fu have been taught, to provide the best example I can in respect to past masters who came before me.
The Immortal Kung Fu Academy provides true academic martial arts education that allows both new students and experienced martial artists to further their understanding about how to perfect their practice, and how to become a martial arts master.
The curriculum taught is in accordance with the official curriculum of the Kwok family lineage and will prepare students better health and vitality. With deep understanding of the system, our students will be eligible for certification and a degree of expertise in the practice of their choice by our world renowned Si Gong, Dr. G. S. Torres.
I have studied the curriculum of my Si Gong diligently, with attention to detail, without re-inventing the forms or altering them to make them easier or flashier. The forms I teach are some of the hardest forms to learn, they take much time. The benefits gained by learning them is greater than that which you would gain by practicing easy forms that do not challenge your body. Our curriculum is one of the toughest to receive a degree of certification to teach to others. In order to become accomplished to a level where you could then teach these forms to others, you must learn them perfectly, and this requires that you must practice with determination for perfection.
