Instructor: Kevin Magee

After studying martial arts intensively in Japan for many years. Kevin was dissatisfied with his own level of skill. In a fortunate encounter with Peter Ralston, he discovered a Master who was teaching the principles of being effortlessly effective. Such was the impact of Ralston’s teaching, Kevin dropped his studies in Japan and apprenticed with Peter for several years. He now teaches Cheng Hsin martial and ontological workshops throughout Europe.
