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 your mind, body and spiritual discipline to seize opportunities and 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 help you 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 of the universe and applying them to our everyday lives.
The Immortal Kung Fu Academy is inspired by Taoism, Buddhism, Yoga and Modern Science.
Philosophy, delivered through the martial arts, will help people better understand laws of nature, society and human potential. My goal is to teach students they way I have was taught which is the way the Kung Fu tradition has been passed down for generations. I am here to provide the best opportunities to others in respect to the past masters who came before me. I know how they would like to see the future of their kung fu systems passed on to the future and I intend to preserve the essence their combined experiences have allowed us to have.
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 to know how to become martial arts masters.
The curriculum taught is in accordance with the official curriculum of the Kwok family lineage and will prepare students better health, vitality, and martial ability. 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.
