Master Han Sang Bok is the president of the International Golden Rishi Qigong & Tai Chi (also known as the World Golden Rishi Academy, USA), an affiliate of the International Golden Rishi Academy. He was born in 1969 and started learning Taekwondo in 1974. Growing older, he only got more and more interested in all kinds of body-mind disciplines and kept learning passionately at all costs. In 1990’s, he founded and ran Han’s Dragon Martial Arts Academy in Chicago and later moved to San Diego, where he continues to teach.
There are numerous experts in martial art, but a lot of them focus only on the physical performance or making their students win prizes and medals in competitions. However, Master Han’s goal is to teach people such that the training becomes your lifelong best friend, that keeps you physically and mentally healthy and also gives you a sense of achievement. He understands that, once you injure a part of your body, even if it ‘heals’, it won’t probably be 100% same as it was before the injury. Thus, he always respects his students limits and personalities and know exactly how far he should push to challenge the student without harming or hurting body or feelings. He also teaches you how to use your mind because, as science proves, your body responds to your mind, bringing a difference to your physical reality as well as athletic performance.
