In this episode we will be interviewing Stephen McLaughlin of White Cloud Kung Fu Academy as we discuss the practice of lineage succession. Located in Blackburn, Lancashire of the United Kingdom. White Cloud Kung Fu Academy was founded by Sifu Derek Gordon in 1962 and is today guided by 2 of his students, Dave Cowell & Head Coach Bill Keith, both with more than 40 years of Martial Arts experience. Steven McLaughlin is one of 2 senior instructors both with nearly 2 decades of continuous Martial Arts experience under their belt. He currently teaches Long Boxing(Chang Chuan), Wing Chun, Hsing-I , Bagua Zhang and Yang style Taiji Chuan. He began his training in Chinese Gong Fu at the age of 6 and at age 20 he received his 3rd rank of black belt in 2010.
Lineage succession is the practice of grooming specific students to act as a vessel of transmission for a particular martial style. Tai Chi Chuan is one style in particular that uses lineage documentation much like a family tree to trace its roots and origination. These lineage holders are then entrusted to become caretakers of a particular style ensuring their art continues to thrive in its entirety. Lineage succession is predominantly practiced throughout Asia but we are finding that this method of knowledge preservation is also surfacing in the Asian martial arts in the western world.
Although White Cloud Kung Fu Academy does not officially use Lineage succession the principles of personal growth, self-realization, and lifetime cultivation, are carefully fostered and guided. Steven Mclaughlin is now the 3rd generation of instructors at White Cloud Kung Fu academy.

Attention hard-core Professional Group Fitness Instructors (PGFI)
There may come a time in your fitness life when you have to slow down. Yes, YOU! Even Jack LaLanne eventually slowed down and he was a persistant and dedicated exerciser. Perhaps, for many of you, it is a challenge to slow down and the idea even makes you uncomfortable.
Tai Chi changed my life
My personal journey, as first a professional group fitness instructor (someone whose primary source of income is teaching group fitness classes), then, evenutally, becoming a tai chi instructor, has inspired me to share my story with other GFPI.
The take-away here is that PGFIs who begin to study and practice this internal martial arts will benefit tremedously. It can also be another source of income targeting the expanding demand in the fitness industry for elder-friendly exercise.

3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.
