Meet your Instructor,
Sexual Kung Fu teacher and lifestyle coach
In my 20’s, I found myself feeling very depleted and had very little confidence. Like many men, I was hooked on porn and masturbation as an outlet for my sexual frustration. I felt like my life was going nowhere, I had huge ambitions and dreams, but lacked the discipline and energy to pursue them.
Over 10 years ago, I began training in yoga, tantra, qigong, and Taoist sexual practices. After studying with several teachers in all of these traditions, I’ve kept only the practices that are most practical and effective for living in the modern world.
Through this training I learned to, not only vastly increase my sexual energy, but also my ability to control and channel it into every aspect of my life. I learned to overcome sexual frustration and inhibitions, and to have marathon lovemaking sessions without ejaculating.
Through these practices I am able to keep myself energized and filled with creative energy while living a busy lifestyle. This has carried over into greatly improving my productivity, career, happiness, health, and relationships.
In 2017 I became a Certified Healing Tao Instructor under Michael Winn, Taoist lineage holder and co-author of several of Mantak Chia's books, including "Taoist Secrets of Love: Cultivating Male Sexual Energy". Since then I've studied with many other teachers from around the world to deepen my understanding and have pioneered my own practices and techniques which I now teach in this course. You won't find most of these practices anywhere else!
Sexual energy is incredibly powerful, it is very important to learn sexual cultivation from an experienced teacher who understands the necessary safety precautions. By joining my course, you will have the exact blueprint and practice schedule you need to safely and skillfully master the art of Sexual Kung Fu. These practices have brought me tremendous success both in the bedroom and out in the world, and I have taught them to tens of thousands of men worldwide.
