Training in the Chinese Martial arts of Beijing style Shuai Jiao, Bagua Zhang, Tai Ji Quan, Da Bei Quan and Qi Gong.  

“"The Guang Wu Shuai Jiao Fundamentals course allowed me to not only increase my strength and flexibility while grappling but also to get an introduction to throws and takedowns that I could integrate into my daily BJJ practice. Sonny's lessons and teachings are clear, concise, and detailed. Whenever I found something wasn't working, I would go back, rewatch the videos, and discover the detail I was missing, he had already covered. The lessons are structured in such a way that they build you from the ground up, even if you've never grappled before. I highly recommend anyone that wants to get started with Shuai Jiao take this course."”
