Sifu Lawrence Hill speaks to a question about why he isn't a millionaire. The reason is the distinction between material and substantial living...
Sifu Hill has been teaching the martial arts for over 20 years. He began with a vision of creating a dojo that was more than a place where people learned the mechanics of self-defense - something more akin to the Shaolin temples of old. There, martial training was only one piece of a larger way of living, a way full of spirituality and the development self of awareness.

Realizing this vision has been a challenge in our modern, "gotta have it all now" world. Sifu Hill has experimented with different types of schools over the years, from a "no-frills" shack in his backyard to a more conventional-looking establishment in a converted warehouse. For serious students, he has found, physical environment matters less than the existence of a supportive community of learning. That is what Systems Within Systems is about.

Sifu Hill's original vision has blossomed into a rapidly growing, self-organizing community that blends martial arts and philosophical inquiry into an integrated, practical approach to living. Sifu Hill teaches kung fu at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, and has shared his skills and knowledge with the New Jersey State Police, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the U.S. Postal Service.

Systems Within Systems offers private and small-group lessons in Shaolin kung fu, tai chi chuan, and chi gung (qigong). Sifu Hill is also available to speak on a wide range of subjects, from martial arts and meditation to stress management and leadership. For more information, contact Systems Within Systems. Self-defense and wellness programs are also are available for corporate clients.
