"Find a school or teacher that resonates with you, make a solid commitment by dedicating your time and energy to improve in your practice. If you're sincere and persevere you will experience powerful, positive results that will increase exponentially on many levels of your being. The results you experience will be enjoyed in your training and more importantly, they will be there for you to utilize in your everyday life! The ultimate aim of any student or teacher is connecting with Chung Fu, aka your Inner Truth and discover what you're truly capable of achieving."

A message from Terry Hodgkinson Sifu.

When I met Terry in the mid 90’s, I knew there was something special about him. At first I couldn’t put my finger on it. I had met superb martial artists before and encountered dozens of talented therapists, but with Terry there was something more. As we became close business associates and friends, I realized what it was; Terry is authentic. In the world of self-help, there seems to be a new guru or an acclaimed breakthrough every week, but most of these fall short in substance and method. In Terry I found the real deal. He had walked the walk.

I just got back from my first trip oversees to India and it was an amazing experience. One thing I highly recommend is taking your first trip to a far off country with someone who knows what they’re doing. Terry showed me the ropes, I felt confident that I could take care of my self and the skills Terry shared with us came in quite handy. Terry took us to a few awesome places that weren’t in any guidebook too. If you’re off to India or China take a guide like Terry Hodgkinson with you! Now I’m revved up and can’t wait to travel again!
