About the Martial Art of Awareness
The Martial Art of Awareness - Hood River seeks to be transparent and authentic in what we can provide fellow training members. Below is the reality of where we are as of Dec 21, 2021:
Hi, I’m DeWayne. I moved to Hood River late 2016 and launched the Martial Art of Awareness to bring the art to the Columbia Gorge area.
Let’s be honest, I am not Grand Master Sam Chin, the current gate-keeper of the system who brought the art to the US, created the curriculum and wrote the system book. I am, however, a certified level-1 Instructor and level-4 student under the Zhong Xin Dao – I Liq Chuan (ZXD-ILC) system. I have studied various martial arts since 1995 and I feel confident in my ability to help you achieve your martial arts goals.
I believe I can offer you a unique training experience in a safe (i.e. ego-free) environment while at the same time sharing and spreading this incredible martial art in the Columbia River Gorge.
When you train with me, you will benefit from the larger ZXD-ILC family. There is a robust training seminar circuit available for you to tap into and with enough of us, we can host advanced instructors locally to help us all improve.
