About Me  
Growing up with backyard martial arts and the realness of street fighting in the rural delta region of Northern California, juxtaposed with the influence of my grandfather’s Gung-Fu practice and incense burning rituals, and formal dojang [Korean martial arts school] training; with my Buddhist master, in San Francisco’s Chinatown and Japan Town, I was never a stranger to the intuitive reflexes and highs associated with physicality. These early memories and experiences led me to my own life-long pursuit of the dynamic practices of Astanga Vinyasa [eight limbs of flowing motion] yoga and Kuk Sool Won [traditional Korean Buddhist] martial arts. Forming such a foundation in my youth and teenage years, I practiced the way of the sword, and You Won Hwa [flowing circular harmony] while perfecting my asanas [postural stances] and ‘floating’ [advanced aerial arm balancing] techniques. I learned the art of the dual-edged path, cultivating both disciplines simultaneously throughout my twenties. My travels expanded with my interests, which took me across the Asian landscapes of China and India. I sought out great beings of knowledge, honing my skills and awareness, which eventually exposed me to the art of Thai massage [active yoga massage] and other healing methods. Integrating this form of sacred touch was the necessary element that supported the development of the Yogic Arts™ system into its current form, which is the ongoing expression of my life’s work. This practice will introduce all physical enthusiasts to the awareness and conditioning of their bandhas [core muscular areas of the pelvic floor, inner thighs and the abdominal trunk of the transverse abdominus]. Utilizing movement from this central location in the body ‘ups the game’ for people desiring to enhance and eventually master their ability to ‘not tear the rice-paper’, or wear out their bodies when practicing ‘jump-backs’ and ‘jump-throughs’ during time spent on the mat. -Duncan Wong is the creator of the Yogic Arts™ system. His practice spans over 20 years and his teachings extend across the globe.
