One of 11 children born to a family of sharecroppers in Parkin, Ark. (population 1,414), Robinson remembers a boyhood spent picking cotton till his fingers bled and trying to avoid trouble in the Jim Crow South. If you were black in the 1950s, you were not allowed in downtown Parkin after dusk. "The South was a dangerous place for black kids," he says. "You were always afraid." --- Read entire article from Boston Globe 6/4/03.


Kinetic T'ai Chi Master Heg Robinson has been a teacher and martial arts practitioner in for almost 40 years. He has become a leader in self health. It has become a way of life-not only for him but for many of his students as well. Master Heg was born in Arkansas in 1943. His father was the first to demonstrate the practice of T'ai Chi to him. This was accomplished through the value of repetition in the ordinary work of farming, picking cotton, and sawing wood.

Master Heg Robinson obtained his formal training as a classical master in the Yang form of T'ai Chi Ch'uan through his Masters, Master Chu Gin-Soon, T. K. Shis, T. T. Liang, and a host of others. He has taught and practiced this martial art around the country. His commitment to T'ai Chi is ever widening. He founded the Roxbury T'ai Chi Academy in 1973 and teaches T'ai Chi as a martial art and health care system that provides treatment for a wide variety of ailments.

The art of Tai Chi has been well documented over time by Western medical establishments and research institutions. It is known how self-health practices can bring balance, flexibility, and durability to your body. T'ai Chi brings stress relief, decreases blood pressure, improves heart problems, and arthritis to name a few. Authorities agree that a self-health practice such as T'ai Chi Ch'uan, heals the mind/ body /spirit and prevents common ailments.

The Flying Tiger is my interpretation of the conditioning one experiences over a period of time from practicing T'ai Chi Ch'uan. With committed practice and hard work, your bones will ultimately become as dense as one of the most powerful creatures on earth - the Tiger. I have developed a solution to many of our natural ailments.
