Stefan von Leesen has intensely studied the inner-workings of Martial Arts for the last ten years. His main influence was Grandmaster Peter Ralston (founder of Cheng Hsin) with whom he undertook an Apprentice Programme throughout 2004 in Texas. The main endeavour of Cheng Hsin is true questioning to come to the root of truth.
Stefan first met Tom Myers 2003 an a seminar where Tom taught Anatomy and was immediately struck by the similarities between Cheng Hsin and Tom’s endeavour with KMI. He undertook the KMI training in 2005 and in 2006, graduating in December 2006. Currently he is studying to become an Osteopath at the Osteopathie Kolleg in Bavaria and is assisting the German osteopath Jakob Lammersdorf in seminars all over Europe.
