*NOTE* The website is going through a major overhaul, and so parts of it will be down for some time. There will be some added features that were not on the old website. I apologize for the time this will take. Sifu Skegg
"Indeed. I've learned a couple of "internal" systems in the past--both of Shaolin origins. In neither case was the instructor able to demonstrate anything in terms of the internal. They surely believed in it, trying to heal people through touch, and all that stuff. But in terms of actually being capable...not so much. Subsequently I wrote off the "internal" perspective as being just another perspective of physics, momentum, inertia, kinetic energy and the transference of it.
Yet something always seemed to still be missing in my gung fu. The physical movements are easy for me--always have been--I've learned entire systems (from a technique perspective) in just a few months time. But I always knew there was something more to it and simply couldn't find anyone that was capable of showing that to me--until I met you of course.
So even if the training is going to be brief, I believe that the insight gained will be invaluable. You've brought back my faith in the belief of the powers of gung fu."
I am no longer accepting students. I am having to retire due to ongoing issues with my knee problems, which have progresively worsened. Eventually the school will reopen once one of the other Sifus I have trained will take over. The location will be in the southern Maine area.
I legally changed my name in April of last year from Robert Anthony to Snaer Rjothr Skegg, due to personal reasons. It is Od Norse, and translated it means "Snow Red Beard", which is also what Sjut Mui Wu transliterates to in Cantonese. I decided to use Cantonese for the name of my Wing Chun purely as symbolic, since it is a Chinese martial art, and not to represent myself as being Chinese ~ Snaer Skegg
