The Founder ~ Dorje was the personal student of the Chi Monk, Reverend Grand Master Raiford and is the heir to his system after his passing. Dorje holds black belts in, Judo, Ninjutsu, Wado Ryu, Taekwondo, and is an ordained Chi Monk trained in the art of Qigong & Dim Max. After many years of training with other martial artists, gurus, and monks from around the world Dorje developed and founded the Uke Ki Shin Ryu™ system of martial arts and the Waiest® Qigong system of mental discipline and chi training, which has become a world recognized form of study. The title “Dorje” means thunderbolt of enlightenment, as in an awakening and is the head of our system of training. Dorje holds certificates in Mikkyo and various other philosophical studies. He is also a Certified Natural Health Specialist. Dorje has touched the lives of many people. His goal is not to teach people how to fight but how to defend themselves and to learn confidence and life skills that will help his students succeed in an ever-more challenging world. He tells his students that their mind is their most effective weapon and the disciplined mind is the sword of the new day.
