Chinese Medicine Study Group With Robert Hudson L.AC

By Invitation Only!

Robert Hudson L.Ac graduated from the San Francisco College of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine in 1986, then mentored for five years with notable medical experts – Dr. Fung (Herbology), Dr. Miriam Lee (Dr. Tung Acupuncture), Dr. Tseng (Acupuncture), Dr. Steven Chen (Sheng Gu Tuina).  Since 2012, Robert has taught various didactic classes, Tuina, Qigong, and served as a clinic supervisor and herbal pharmacy manager at the Asian Institute of Medical Studies (now the Arizona School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine) in Tucson, AZ. 

Robert has also practiced Danzan Ryu jujitsu since 1970, achieving the title of Shihan and rank of 9th degree black belt.  He is an authorized teacher of Wing Chun kung fu.  Robert also teaches Seifukujitsu, a 1500 year-old Japanese healing modality that is usually taught within confines of the Danzan Ryu curriculum.

Robert is an accomplished TCM practitioner, martial artist, and seasoned instructor of several modalities of therapeutic bodywork.  He has tremendous expertise in Dit Da, internal & external formulations, and the philosophical and practical integration of the medical and martial arts.  As an avid and long-standing student and practitioner of yogic meditation and East Asian spiritual traditions, Robert also brings a deep understanding of spirituality, human nature, and the process of transmission.

The Opportunity:

Robert has offered to teach and mentor a limited number of Asian medical practitioners who wish to increase their depth of understanding and practice of Chinese medicine, Asian philosophy, and the interplay between them.  Practitioners who are martial artists will receive additional benefit from Robert’s teachings and perspectives.

Three-hour online classes will be held about every 3 weeks.  Online discussions and information will also be available to members.  Classes will be constructed to meet the needs of the study group members, and may include myriad topics related to the practice of Asian medicine.  Virtual consultations, to help with complex patient cases, will also be available to members at a discounted cost.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) may become available at no additional cost.
