Ep 33 - The Dao of Being An Internal Martial Artist Living in China - Founder of Jing Wu Pai (京武派), Raphael Smith

Raphael Smith is a 6th Generation Lineage Holder of Song Family Hsing-I Chuan under master Li Yujie.  Raphael is also a student Jeong Won-il and Grandmaster Fan Dechen in Chen Style Practical Method. Raphael has published articles for Kung Fu Tai Chi magazine, won national and international championships in China, and currently is teaching Chinese martial arts in Beijing.

The host of the podcast, Josh Hyde, started following Raphel's teachings at Jing Wu Pai on Instagram for fun and quickly realized the founder is living a movie that hasn’t been made.  Raphel Smith talks about his journey to find the right teachers, living abroad in China as an American, increasing power through alignment of the body, and the practicality of tai chi in every day life.
