Head Instructor Sifu Rob Jones

Sifu Rob Jones has over 40 years of experience in the Martial Art fields of external and internal power. Some of his fields of practice include Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Wu Chi, Nei Gong and several meditation type of disciplines. Sifu Jones started learning martial arts in 1970. Sifu Jones spent almost a decade (spanning from Aug 79′ to June 89′) in Korea, the Philippines and Japan practicing martial arts & inner power techniques everyday. In 1991, he opened a martial arts school in instructing students with his father. By 2005, he retired from teaching martial arts in the traditional sense and now only teaches students online at the School of Chi Energy this powerful new method of energy form training.

The Chi Energy Method that the School of Chi Energy teach students is a step by step hands on way of training. The chi energy cool circular method is an advanced bioenergy approach to cultivating large amounts of energy in the body. The method emphases strengthening the electrical part (the nervous system of the body), instead of the traditional way of  building up the blood circulation which is taught everywhere.  Students are taken to the highest levels in chi work. These chi techniques are complete with safe guards in place, so a student can obtain optimal results in health and in their healing abilities.

Sifu Jones is no longer affiliated with Velocity Group Publishing, Chi Power or any Mind Force websites or products and he has not been endorsing any of those products for a number of years now. When the latest scientific & medical research showed those methods to have serious flaws to them, Sifu Jones started this School of Chi Energy. This new revolutionary step by step method for cultivating large amounts of chi energy safely is now available to everyone that wants to learn how to perform high level chi techniques.

Chi Energy is more powerful than Chi Power

Certified Chi Energy Instructor

Sifu Don Brown II, MSIS

Don Brown began his training with Sifu Jones in 1997.  His background is an amalgam of intellectual curiosity, stemming from his introduction to the concept of chi in traditional martial arts [tai chi and kenjutsu] and similarities between the two.  Don’s scientific curiosity, background in Engineering (Masters of Science in Information Sciences) and [admitted] skeptical nature make him a perfect research assistant for the Sifus.

Don’s interviews focus on quantum physics and how the latest scientific data correlate to chi, and more specifically, for the School of Chi Energy.  The information conveyed therein is backed with hours upon hours of research, and is explained in layman terms; Don takes great strides in not “dumbing it down”, but more importantly, step by step, educating you on the nuances of each topic, so that a complete and thorough understanding of the information can be shared by the practitioners, and incorporated into our daily lives.
