About Grandmaster Franklin

I have been a practitioner and a teacher of Taoism and Tai Chi for well over 50 years. Since 1977 until the present, I continue to direct the School of Tao Chi as well as teach classes in Tai Chi, Qi-Gung, Shaolin Kung Fu, Meditation, philosophy, grief counseling and life style changes. My teaching experience includes teaching Taoism at Glendale Community College in Arizona, Taoism at the Leeward Community College in Hawaii and Taoism at the University of Alaska. I was Adjunct Faculty Lecturer on the Eastern Philosophy of Taoism at the University of Alaska from 1984 to 1997. I also taught at the Anchorage Senior Center for 9 years teaching Medical Tai Chi/Qi-Gung to Seniors. I established the School of Tao Chi in 1977 and taught Medical Qi-Gung and Taoism for 25 years. Included in my teachings I offered workshops that focused on teaching children with asthma the benefits of Medical Qi-Gung breathing exercises. I also specialize and work with people who have Parkinson's Disease, Fibromyalgia, MS and other neurological disorders as well as the various forms of Arthritis. I have been a consultant and participant in Tai Chi / Qi Gung research at Arizona State University. I hold a certificate in Kinesiology, Exercise Analysis and Biomechanics from The University of Alaska, Anchorage.  I am certified and endorsed by The Oregon Council on Aging. I use Taoism philosophy as a mentoring tool to work with people who are experiencing life challenges. I use a gentle approach to help people in their transition in death and dying situations, assisting both patients and their families.

In my philosophies I search for the root and essence of mankind.  As a published author of philosophy, poetry and children's stories I explore the yearnings that drive us to have compassion.

In my classes, the intimate gatherings between Master and students allow for open and full dialog and interaction as the ancient wisdom of Taoism unfolds and reveals its influence on Eastern and Western cultures.
