Cheng Hsin, the Art of Effortless Power is an internal martial art that is not based on resistance, reactivity or brute force, but instead on acceptance, sensitivity and connectivity. Cheng Hsin was created by world class martial artist and zen master Peter Ralston as a unique blend of internal martial arts, self inquiry and contemplation offering an opening for transformation, personal growth and consciousness. In Cheng Hsin our aim is to uncover an authentic direct experience of body and mind, self and relationship.
