Self-Defense with Mindful Awareness Workshop with Dr.Wong Kai Ming

June 10, 2018 @ 4:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Sign up now!


Attune yourself to the mindful awareness that tops the list for effective self defense. You will learn to leverage your personal power against an attacker, redirecting force with proper body mechanics to unbalance the attacker.  Dr. Wong will discuss the anatomic vulnerabilities of the human body that can open opportunities for you to escape and/or end any physical aggression toward you.

This is not the usual martial arts class, not a tutorial on “fighting”, but a proactive introduction to develop confidence in harmonizing with motion and energy, the only proper mindset to displace fear and the “victim” mentality.

This ancient practice was started by a mother saving her child from floating downstream with a wrist-lock. It uses an opponent’s force against them. It’s about how to win without fighting. Your attacker is just part of the environment that you are harmonizing with. Through your mindful awareness and skills in body mechanics, you become the choreographer of your surroundings.

Appropriate for both men and women.

Dr. Wong Kai Ming

In Dr. Wong Kai Ming’s words, “Seek only harmony in spirit, as there is no honor in domination or control, there is no need to fight unless we allow it emotionally or physically.”  Dr. Wong encourages his students to find strength and sensitivity in body mechanics, proper thought and mindset to support the mind-body systems, and an open connection to spirit. He embraces transformation of spirit-mind-body relationships, as an enthusiastic student of the martial arts and various other Asian arts, such as Fengshui, study of the I Ching, and a Japanese form of astrology.  

Dr. Wong has been teaching Yang style T’ai Chi Ch’uan over two decades and holds a masters certificate in Chin Na, under Grandmaster Kam Jun Wai who taught “win without fighting”.  Inspired by Taoist and Buddhist influences, he enjoys applying martial arts concepts to daily life and his medical practice, observing the benefits of resonating energy modalities as his patients recover from surgery.  When challenged, he blends Eastern and Western disciplines to bring forth truth, knowledge, and wisdom.
