Master Chia’s Training

Master Chia began studying the Buddhist method of “still the mind” at the age of six, and later he studied Muay Thai boxing, T’ai chi ch’uan, Kung Fu and Taoist and Buddhist meditation practices from several masters.

The most influential of all his masters was Yi Eng (White Cloud), an eremitic (recluse) member of the Dragon’s Gate sect of the Quanzhen (Complete Perfection) school of Taoism. Yi Eng taught Mantak Chia a complete Taoist training system and authorized him to teach and heal.
