Q & A with Jesse

What does the title “Sifu” mean and how did you earn it?

“Sifu” means “teacher” and to earn it, one has to have a solid understanding of the internal principles.

What are some skills or talents you have that nobody knows about?


What did you want to be when you were 10?

Funny enough, I wanted to be a martial arts instructor.

One item on your bucket list?

Travel to Germany, Italy and Ireland.

One goal you want to accomplish within the next year?

More internal power, of course.

How long would you last in a zombie apocalypse?

Depends if they are the fast zombies or the slow ones. Slow ones, a month. Fast ones, ten minutes.
