What Is Kai Chi Do?

Charles Robinson developed Kai Chi Do as a form of meditation in action.   Using breathwork, music, and movements derived from the ancient wisdom of the martial arts, Kai Chi Do quickly takes you into a calm meditative state of mind.  At the same time, you get a great physical workout that you can easily adapt to your own level of fitness.  And you get to share it all with a group of friends who are right there with you on that natural high.

The name “Kai Chi Do” literally translates to “Free Spirit Way” or “Free Energy Way”.  The process of Kai Chi Do takes you through The  Five Elements – Root, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth  –  to free blocked energy.  As physical and emotional resistance dissolves, you feel Life Energy flowing freely throughout your body and consciousness, uplifting you.

And bringing you home to your Self.

Pixability did a wonderful job of bringing together the spirit of Kai Chi Do with the movements, the energy of the moment, and the sounds of melody and rhythm that are, for me, an essential part of the Kai Chi Do experience. Great work!

Kai Chi Do is not only an excellent workout both mentally and physically, but more importantly the spiritual awakening you achieve from the circulation of your energy. Kai Chi Do has changed my outlook on life and has inspired me to search more into spirituality. Thanks Charles!

This is a wonderful video clip. It really does capture the essence of Kai Chi Do. I love how the group is in the water during the process. I haven’t had the opportunity yet to do it in the water and now I am looking forward to it. Now we just have to convince our Chicago group to get in the cold Lake Michigan, haha. Thank you Charles and Susan!!

Kai Chi Do has really opened up an avenue for me to experience the world on a different level. Even though I do not have access to the group at this time, and I miss that, I know that I will carry it with me forever. Thank you to Charles and all the people who have inspired this movement. It has and will keep giving all people, everywhere, beauty, hope and love.

As I watch your inspiring video, my heart breaks open. I Love, honor & miss you, and I am thrilled to see Kai Chi Do alive & thriving (please, as if it would do anything but!). I continue to practice my lessons daily, my torch growing bigger & brighter all the time, never reaching its limit. It’s almost ridiculous, how incredibly blessed I am!

LIMITLESS PEACE, LIGHT & THANKS TO YOU, SENSEI. NAMASTE & ALL ABOARD! : ) : ) : )

Being aware is not to understand, but to embrace, then understand. Make connections with your the environment connecting body, mind, and spirit to endure all that is possible within you and all around you. There are pieces to the puzzle to complete awareness. Even though they may all seem scattered at once you can always put them back together. I can see the puzzle. The work comes in time to see the whole picture. One, whole, who I am and what we are. We are all connected, always have been. Earth, air, fire, water and spirit, surrendering to all is the key. Surrendering to nature because we are a part of it, we are made of it and letting go of control to be “one in all”, life itself. We can be the change we want to see in the world. Just let it flow, and let it be. The end of all suffering begins with us. World peace, love, hate, compassion, wisdom etc. all comes within us. Open up and explore your true potential. Don’t restrict yourself because it’s not good for your destiny and destiny is all we have. The unknown is everything we’ve been looking for, but the awareness starts with finding the unknown within ourselves which has never been unknown, just lost. Namaste <3

Kai Chi Do is amazing. I have truly been inspired and it really works. You have to work it to make it worth it
Thank you

The divine inner knowing of the cosmos is all what we are. Connecting to our source, our souls is what we have deep within. Praising our inner guidance of ourselves and then all beings around us is the answer to oneness. The importance of our future is within us, it’s just a matter of listening to that inner voice that we tend to ignore.
In the future the sun is going to align with our milky way and all the planets will be in one straight line. The magnetic field that is cover our mother earth has grown to be very thin. So when the planets and sun align up together, this will allow a new vibration into the universe, and with that will come great awarenes for those who are resisting. This new vibration is already happening, it’s in the making.
We must help the ones who are blocked with materialism. What we as humans have created our souce to be is materialistic things. Our souce lies within us-our souls. The people who will allow this new beginning to happen can provide and come into unity with the new forces that will come and the ones that are already here. The change is among us and listening to what the gods and ancestors have been saying for ages are comming together. With great challenge comes great awareness. Creating the future for our offspring and the ones after them is so important for our future for them on this earth. We as the teachers can help accomodate this new time, this new beggining. The power of sacred mantra is the reminder that we are our guides, we are god and we are love. The past is the pathway to our future we just have to listen. Imagine if we all had the thinking of greatness for our future rather than hatred, and truly believed that it would be great. We have the ability to change our destiny with a thought. That is where it all begins. Being a peace maker is the key to seeing things clearly.

I’m am soooo ready to get my “Do” on tomorrow morning… I really did realize this week that I have to have Kai Chi Do in my life, I just cant go with out it! Earlier this week I was so off balance and fatigued due to the many changes I’ve got going on right now and I honestly didnt think I was going to be able to finish. But I went and gave it my all any way and immediately, within five minutes, I felt completely better.
The feeling, the energy, the emotional release and clarity that I experience from Kai Chi Do, to its extent, is something that I’ve never been able to receive from the gym or any other type of work out I’ve done previously.
Many thanks to my Gurudeva! With love and light…
