NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC: ED RAMIREZ NOT PART OF XINYI MEDITATION
This is to notify everyone that Ed Ramirez is not connected with Xinyi Meditation. He studied under Master David for only a few months. He barely finished the basic Liuhebafa frame, and has never learned any of its martial applications. We were informed that Ramirez claimed to be close to us, but in fact we do not know him. Most of us have met him only once, many do not even know he exists.
Ramirez never learned any YiQuan or power practice from Xinyi Meditation. If he had learned YiQuan from us, he would not have needed a TaiChi expert to conduct FaJin seminars for him.
Here are some partial copies of his e-mails:
1) Tue, Mar 6, 2012 at 1:36 PM from email@example.com… “I alone – and not David Chan – am the first authentic Liuhebafa practitioner in this country by virtue of the traditional rites accorded to me by the disciples of Chan Yik Yan.”
2) June 20, 2008 from firstname.lastname@example.org… “Master Peter from Hongkong came over to the Philippines and decided to take me as his student. He taught me his style called waterboxing and his form, which is the same one as Liuhebafa. But he focused on the nine-joints training which links all of the joints, without which you would need another style such as Yiquan to generate power.”
