1. KoBang Qigong
KoBang Qigong challenges you to self-heal. This ancient, fairly intense form of qigong serves as the basic healing practice for KoBang’s (Old Way). Circulating qi (energy/breath of life) through the body in stationary, standing positions, our intent is to increase concentration, stamina, bone density and bone marrow production of blood cells. Even in seemingly still positions, we attain a perspiring workout doing this form of qigong. When we circulate qi we energize all the body meridians referred to in classical Oriental medicine.
2. Medicinal Movement
Become healthier and feel younger with Medicinal Movement! Life itself is Energy. Everything around us is Energy. The future medicine is Qi (Energy). Free all your joints from stiffness, control your breath and calm your mind to help the flow of Energy to every part of your body. If KoBang Qigong feels too rigorous, please explore this more accessible form of qigong. Rejuvenate yourself!

- Basic standing Qigong postures (KoBang/Old Way style)
- Sitting Qigong
- Effective breathing
- Restoring Vital Energy (Qi)

3. Kendo Basics for Health
Kendo translates as “way of the sword” in Japanese. The intention is to enhance healthy reflexes, coordination and balance. The basic disciplines and moves of Kendo’s bamboo sword, supplemented by the foam sword, can provide an effective cross-training to qigong. The swifter movement and lightness of foot of Kendo counterbalance qigong’s long-held poses. While full development of Kendo results in a martial art or sports-like sparring, health is the goal of this practice.

Master Jonah Chin
Master Chin’s martial arts training goes back over 40 years, having started when he was 5 years old. He has since disciplined himself in one of Korea’s oldest Daoist medicinal lineages for over 25 years. His practices include traditional qigong, iaido, kendo and acupuncture. Even his seemingly martial practices ultimately bear the stamp of his dedication to healing and actually self-evolving into a higher level of awareness and wholeness.
“Master” is the closest English translation of a traditional Korean title that means both “teacher” and “exemplar”: one who exemplifies in his life what it is that he teaches.
