About the Instructor:
Sifu Kelly Ryan Lake is a teacher of the Daoist Internal Arts and founder of the Temple of the Original Thunder. His ability to "demystify the mystical" and breakdown the complexities of these deep and intricate teachings into easy to understand and workable instructions, all while maintaining a playful and encouraging atmosphere, is what makes him stand out as a teacher.
He began his training with the martial arts in his teens; eventually finding home in the Chinese Internal Styles of Taijiquan and Baguazhang. Whilst endeavoring to become a Sifu of these martial art styles, Kelly simultaneously pursued a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine, a Doctorate of Medical Qigong Therapy, and Ordination as a Priest within the Esoteric Daoist Traditions.
During this time Kelly had also expanded on his martial expertise with the study of other Chinese Kung Fu as well as Boxing and Kickboxing.
Today, Sifu Kelly lives in the mountain town of Taos, New Mexico, studying with Lama Lar Short of the Grace Essence Mandala, and teaching Daoist, Qigong, Baguazhang, and Neigong classes online.
