High Level Internal guys in Los angeles area?

Postby swaggyp.hk on Wed Mar 15, 2017 1:43 pm

Hi all!

Who are some high level internal guys in the LA area? I'm in Pasadena, but I can travel around to nearby areas...Please list your top recs for chi kung, internal alchemy, tai chi, bagua , xing yi....

My ultimate goal is internal alchemy and cultivation, not really tai chi/ martial arts per say, but that would be cool too.

Thank you

My Kung fu brother is teaching Serge Augier stuff if you're interested. His name is Steve and he is quite good. I will tell him to hit up the forum to reply to you.

Hi and welcome to RSF.

In my humble opinion, for neijia, there is no one in Southern California more high-level than Tim Cartmell. He lived and studied intensively in Taiwan/China for almost 11 years and is deeply knowledgeable about many styles of taiji, xingyi, bagua, Xu Xi Dao and other internal methods. He also is steeped in the true (i.e. not fake) histories of those arts. Upon his return to the U.S., Tim continued his neijia practice and learned BJJ, in which he now holds a 3rd degree black belt.

Tim is best for those who want to learn martial arts to their fullest extent. Most MA teachers cannot properly teach applications because they have never fought. Tim is an exception to this norm. Also, because he is very intelligent, he is well-versed in the philosophy, psychology and the more esoteric aspects of neijia in which you have expressed interest. He has authored or translated a number of authoritative books, most of which you can find by entering his name on Amazon. You can read his (not very recent) bio on his website, shenwu.com.

Tim is out of the country currently, teaching in Europe. He'll be back the first week in April. He teaches his privates at a BJJ school in Orange County, south of L.A. (my beloved hometown). When he's in town, he hosts open-mat at the school on Saturdays, from 3:00 - 6:00. You might want to drive down to chat with him. I can't give you his phone number without his okay. He's a very personable guy and is always interested in people who are interested in martial arts. Many people drive or fly vast distances to study with Tim. Those of us who live in Southern California are lucky.

I would also recommend Jason Tsou, both Tim and Jason are excellent teachers who are practical minded and can teach their arts fully. Jason Tsou teaches in a park on Saturdays in El Monte which is just east of Pasadena.

I've never studied with him, but Tim Cartmell without a doubt. You'd be making a huge mistake to not at least check him out.

Sudan is in that area, or right around it. He has multiple videos up online, some really good stuff. I don't think you'll find Sudans stuff easily outside of Ne York and Cali. I think someone teaches it up in Washington, so it's quite rare. On top of good stuff, he's also an awesome guy in general.
