John Haggerty


John Haggerty has been studying and teaching East Asian martial and energetic disciplines for more than 30 years. He undertook an intensive study of qigong and Yang style Taijiquan in the tradition of Yang Cheng-fu, and has been teaching the Yang long form—pushing hands, weapon sets, as well as several qigong sets—for about 15 years. He also teaches Isshin-Ryu karate and Chinese hard style martial arts, and has studied widely among other traditional East Asian disciplines and philosophies. John is devoted to sharing the strength and wellness of body, mind, and spirit that traditional internal practices can bring to the sincere student.
