    I heard Chris on James Gilliland’s radio show. I live in Redondo Beach California. What is the best way for me to learn this discipline? I’m currently a member of The Academy Of Remote Viewing And. Remote Influencing. Your discipline compliments what I’m currently learning. Be well. We Are All One.

    Your Ba Qua applications and stretching look good, but a lot of what you talk about spiritually seems to me to be unecessarily complicated, sounds delusional, and irrelevent, except that vision you had of the angry boar with flies for eyes in your youtube James Gilliard interview… I think that was real… 🙂 The rest of the interview sounded batshit crazy, I have never listened to James Gilliard before and just wanted to hear more from you about Ba Qua, and watching the forms was nice. Is it not counterproductive to do such interviews? You say that the dragonsgate sanctuary is to cultivate wisdom and compassion and yet you seek a warriors enlightenment. Where is your scholarly understanding of history (it’s being made everyday) and meditation? Do you consider yourself enlightened? Have you read “Psychology of the esoteric” by Osho, and if so what are your thoughts? I would like to receive copies of “Heart of Baqua” and any Ba Qua applications videos for students of the Victoria Ving Chun Kuen and Ba Qua Club, or if you have space for me, visit your school in Hawaii, but I probably can’t afford the trip. If you are ever in New Zealand, we could meet. I may relate to you some things I have learned as a Christian (Gnostic/Taoist/Buddhist/Messianic Jewish/Muslim/Christian perhaps), who has practised Siu Nim Tao for many years, and see it as a distillation of the internal aspects of much of Ba Qua. Besides the Bible, I really do recommend Osho’s book, which values the method of no method, keeping things simple, and just seeking the inspiration of solitude, natural foods and water and the great outdoors.
    Best regards, James Abbott.
    PS: Sorry about the vision of the boar… 🙂

    I want to begin training in Bagua zhang and am looking for the right instructor for me. I may be in Honolulu for at least one month in August/September. Would your school consider getting me started by providing intensive Bagua training for at least one month? Thank you for your consideration.

  7. John Ernst

    I recently found your videos on youtube. Thank you for taking the time to record and share these; the movement is beautiful and inspiring. Bagua is a wonderful art, you bring a richness and fullness to it I haven’t seen elsewhere.

I am impressed and wanted to see more so Dave sent me more information on you, I see you sell some DVDs I would very much like to buy some and also learn more about any distance programs you may have as I now live in Florida I myself have been studying Gung Fu since 1980 but never wish to stop learning.The internal arts are my favorite, Anyway I hope this note finds you safe and in great health God bless Gage… PS Dave says hi!

    Dear Master,

    I very appreciate your Bagua Palm kungfu, especially the applications of the Bagua Palm. However, because I live in Hong Kong and therefore cannot go to USA to learn, may I buy your Bagua Palm DVD which shows the applications of the Bagua Palm? Please kindly advise the price and the transportation cost.

    Besides, any other kungfu DVDs with applications you may have? Please advise the prices as well. Thks very much!

    Best regards,

    Michelle

    I have had the honor and privilege of meeting a disciple of your school. He is a recent student of acupuncture who goes by the name of Chris. I was so impressed by his good nature and respectable demeanor that I was compelled to ask about his background. After learning about his connection with your school I found your website and the teachings you have described. I am very interested in learning more about your schools teachings. I would like to fulfill a life centered on the attainment of the enlightenment of my mind, body and soul as a way to perpetuate a lifestyle conducive with forming a better future for our generations to come. I would appreciate any type of information or tools by which I may be able to gain more information about your schools teachings. Thank you for your time.

    Hello Master Xie,
    I am Kirk Allen. It is a pleasure to speak with you..
    I am contacting you because, I am looking for instruction in martial arts, particularly, but, in other ares as well.
    I was intending to take a trip to China, to train Gung Fu at the Wudang Monestary, under Master Yuan Xiu Gang. I was to learn martial arts, as well as meditation and the style of life that went with it. However, I ran across a business opportunity here on Oahu, and decided I should invest while I had the availability..
    So, I’m here now and I own a surf shop in Laie. I am trying to make the best of it, but of coarse, being in my first year of business, it isn’t easy.
    So, for the last few years, I’ve gotten further away from myself and the things I am passionate about. I would very much like to rekindle those passions and reconnect with myself and inner spirit. I am a little lost and need a little guidance.. I sincerely hope to get to China someday. I was going to spend 6 months there. I am 46 years old, and not getting any younger. I know the training there is about eight hours a day. Hopefully, I can build the business enough to step away for that amount of time someday soon..
    Wish me luck!
    I would appreciate any guidance you could give, Master Xie..
    Thank you for your time.
    Sincerely,
    Kirk Allen

    This is Shon’s sister. Are we still able to make an appointment with you?
    Please let me know.

    Thank you,

  16. Gregory C Fleisner

    I’ve watched some of your videos and see on your site that you’re school is…’Closed Door,’ what are the requirements for one to be invited to train in your temple. Do you have training DVDs that are for sale?
    Thank-You for your time and courtesy for your reply.
    Sincerely…Gregory C Fleisner

    Hi Christopher, I was just watching one of your videos and really enjoyed your ba gua and your energy. I have been practicing the arts for some time and am making my own investigations into the meanings and origins of things. It is always nice to find like minded people to explore together with. I was wondering what your lineage is.

    Best,
    Abe

    Dear Wu lao xie Christopher Lee Matsuo,
    I just found you by my “research” about Lao Tzu in the internet – and I’m deeply impressed. And curious if there is any chance to study and learn from you?? I met my old first love from more then 30 years ago – the chinese movement arts – again about 3 months ago, when I visited a friend in Taipeh. I had the fortune to learn there an old Qi Gong form: the dance of the 5 animals, tought by grandmaster Wang. Even if I din’t practice Tai Chi or Qi Gong a lot in the last years, the chinese life science was always of big interest and came again and again in my life: with Chi Nei Tsang, Qi Men Dun Jia or when I started again Kung Fu for 2 years when I was 50…. Now after being in Taiwan and studying Qi Gong there my old “chinese fire” is burning again and I know: I want to learn a lot in this area in the next years. I’m a 56 years old metal buffalo, married and father of 3 kids (21, 16 and 13). I’m working with the body since 35 years – I’m a feldenkrais practitioner, physiotherapist and studied many nature oriented cultures – for example the Hawaiian tradition. My wife and me brought the hawaiian bodywork to Germany/Europe. So this is in the last 20 years my main profession – teaching and giving sessions in kahuna bodywork in the tradition of Kahu Abraham Kawaii. So here again the question: Do you take any new students? Are you teaching just in Hawaii? Do you have longtime residential programs? I would be glad to read from you! Mahalo & Aloha from Bavaria!

    I have see some of your videos in network, I practice Taichi and I really cry after see your forms, the sneake at first ( I born in the year of sneake), I was think before that internal (Taoistic) and external(Buddhist) are completely diferents and I was trying to pratictice the internal only because I think are my “style”, but yesterday I read in your video: “Bagua and Tibetan” with movements of Bagua Taichi internal style, joined palms (namaste) of Indian and Buddhist and some mudras too!! .Perhaps the wise man of the pass buddhist and taoist have meet eath other or perhaps they didint see any diferences!?!?!Before I know Taichi I live for Indian Yoga (meditation) and Tibetan Yoga (tantric Buddhist) and Taichi come for make I know my body, energy better. I love all ways to make know our purpose of life…I think you will make a great goal for everyone who cross your life. Thanks peace be with you
