Sifu On Demand is a self-paced online training program designed by Kelley Graham to help NeiJia students gain deeper insight into their practice. Deeper insights enable higher skill. Our curriculum is evidence-based, using neuroscience and neuroanatomy to bring context to the counterintuitive experiences unique to authentic Chinese esoteric practice. Students directly and clearly map the esoteric language associated with high-level internal arts to specific physiological sensations. The poetics of the Taoist Classics will become clear. Check our FAQ, join our community and train.
For centuries, NeiJia (Chinese Internal Martial Arts) have provided tools for developing excellent character, high martial skill and deep self cultivation. Train for health and long life. Train for survival. Genuine transformation requires focus, commitment and effective training methods. You provide the focus and commitment and I provide the training methods. If you train, you will change.

An introduction to basic mind-body concepts and terminology. Standing meditation and simple movements show how the generation of internal power is guided by specific qi sensations. These initial qi sensations are mapped to modern neuro-anatomy to fit clearly in a western scientific context.
So during training the other night it felt like my breath traveled down my spine to the kidney area into the lower abdomen and filled it up. This would have the effect, if I let it, of opening me up stand straight when I inhale and then come down onto a deeper c shape on the exhale. The kidney area at the sides and lower back along the spine was very explicit.
Wow! I just saw that I've been a part of this community for 7 years! That's awesome and frustrating because I should be so much farther along but.... No judging... I've been working on the pearls training or "pearling" as Connor calls it. For some time I've been able to feel the joints open and close in the legs when inhale and exhale. But, after a ribs of doing the wedgie breath and the chair exercise I stood up and my body opened up in a new way and it felt like the whole back of my legs opened up and we're like balloons that filled and deflated with the inhale and exhale.
NOTE: PT's and other touch-based practitioners. If you want to grow your business of helping and healing, I have built Tai Chi Boost as a certification program to better engage the allopathic medical professional. Frankly, MD's, psychiatrists, talk therapists and other clinicians are completely uninterested in how badass you are in the ring. In fact, your fight credentials and marital expertise will work against you.
