Episode 5 – David Wallace on Internal Martial Arts, Healing & The Deep Study Of Movement
This Episode was a special treat for us. We had David Wallace as a guest, a truly fascinating Martial Artist. David is a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Graduate of New York Medical College, and a New York State licensed Physical Therapist.
David has a very rich background in Martial Arts which ranges from Karate, Boxing and Thai Boxing to Wing Chun (including Chu Shong Tin Wing Chun) , Xing Yi, Zhong Xin Dao/I Liq Chuan and others.
(Please see a more detailed bio below)
David took us deep into the deep meaning of Internal Martial Arts, how Martial Arts are connected to Healing (of oneself as well as others) and insights into many valuable principles of how the human body works.
We agreed that when the quarantine is behind us David is invited to come up to Irstad Recordings to train with us and have another episode in which we can talk about insights from training together. Stay tuned!
