    What People Are Saying

    As someone who has long been fascinated by Wei qi, I absolutely loved this course. It was both theoretical and practical. It is dynamic and ties together auxiliary therapies, points and herbs. The teacher is very knowledgeable and an excellent orator. He explains concepts thoroughly and revisits them helping to cement the foundational ideas. I would look out for more of his lectures, most definitely!
