Studying with Sifu Mark Rasmus
Submitted on 06/25/2014 by David Kelly | Yes, I would recommend this experience
10 / 10
Overall Rating

Studying with Sifu Mark Rasmus was an amazing experience. Sifu Rasmus is a willing and gracious teacher who never holds knowledge back. He was able to demystify and effectively teach the basics of Taiji Fajin to me in a very short period of time even though I didn't have a background in Taiji. His teaching method and syllabus is comprehensive and detailed yet he managed to cover so much in a short time. One of the best things about Sifu Rasmus is that he has a background in a number of martial arts so was able to show me how I could use the principles of Taichi to enhance my existing martial arts practice. The whole experience was something that I would highly recommend and is one I will definitely repeat in the future. My only regret is that I was not able to study longer with him in this my first visit.
