The head instructor, currently Dragon James Fell, has the right to determine whether a disciple or student has fulfilled all the requirements, and to determine if any rank has been earned and should be awarded.



I prepare my students so that when the time comes, they are mentally prepared and in the proper mental state to overcome any overwhelming odds.

This is done through teaching enlightenment, increasing knowledge in the art and techniques, practicing applications and care for the body, uplifting the spirit and heart, and expanding the imagination.
