The Martial Art of Awareness is a way to develop mind and physical integration and it’s used all over the world. It’s an Asian-influenced path developed by Grandmaster Sam F.S. Chin—the founder of the ZHONG XIN DAO path of a neutral center way. It uses the martial arts training, specifically the Chin family art of I LIQ CHUAN, as a tool that guides students to use specific exercises that train attention to balance yourself and life. This art is transparent and one can adapt its principles of mindfulness in everyday life as well as transform how you train your art. It is not what you train but HOW you train that makes the difference.
