This organization has been under the auspices of Master Gin Foon Mark for over 35 years, before he moved to Minnesota. It has absolutely no connection to any of Master Mark’s recent instructors’ schools in Minnesota, Philadelphia or Italy. This is an internal style with soft, continuous movements, which must resemble those of the fourth and fifth generation Masters, as depicted in Master Mark’s videos found at www.youtube.com.
Aim of Organization
This system was invented for fighting and has not been diluted to a sport. The founder of the system, Sam Dart, was a small, frail-looking monk. He wanted to defend himself from, and defeat, a gigantic, bullying monk, who was a Kung Fu expert. Furthermore, in those dangerous times, monks feared for their lives and did not know if they would return from a journey. Therefore, this system contains many techniques to cover all possible self-defense situations, some of which are not found in other styles. It considers all ranges and distances in fighting and consists of:
- Punching, kicking, striking, clawing; attacking nerves and acupoints
- Classical Chinese weapons in all combat situations (armed and unarmed)
- Chin Na: Seizing techniques such as joint locks, throwing, pinching etc.
- Martial Qigong(Chi Kung):short power, soft-style hand conditioning
- Qigong for stress relief, health, rejuvination, and treatment of diseases.
- Particpate in the discussions at home by webcam.
- Lion Dancing
- Chinese Painting: seminars featuring Master Mark.
- Location of Meetings: Toms River, NJ 08755
