Michael Reynolds, DOM


Michael Reynolds has been a student of martial arts since 1983. In his early career, he studied the Korean arts of Tae Kwon Do and Tang Soo Do as well as the Japanese art of Goju-Ryu.

In 2001, he first experienced Chinese martial arts via Jow Ga under Grandmaster Hoy K. Lee in Newport News, Virginia. Returning home to Florida, he studied in Pai Lum under Long Shi John Riddick. He would also receive an introduction to Taijiquan via Long Shi Riddick and separately under Master Phuong K. Hoang in Richmond, Virginia.

In 2006 he began studying Chinese internal martial arts in earnest, learning Yang style Taijiquan, Gao style Baguazhang, and Hebei style Xingyiquan, as well as Northern Shaolin.

While he considers Gao style Baguazhang his specialization, Michael believes the styles he teaches to have one root and one theory and therefore to be compatible expressions of the same core method.

As a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, he also is able to add a Chinese medical perspective to the martial one, ensuring that students are able to experience the maximum benefits to their health and well-being from the art.
