Trained in both Internal Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine, Dr. Senu-Oke also brings to this organization his vas medical knowledge to accent his Jow Ga Kung Fu instruction.
Dr. Senu-Oke’s Jow Ga Kung Fu instruction emphasizes combat aspects of training. With particular consideration on body mechanics, technique execution, and fight psychology, Dr. Senu-Oke instructs students on how to carry out techniques in an efficient and effective manner with low personal physical risk. His instruction in body mechanics and technique execution delves into principles of physics, human anatomy, and animal physiology. Being a student of the writings of Masters Miyamoto Musashi and Sun Tzu, Dr. Senu-Oke’s discussion on fight psychology as it relates to combat intent, combatant strength, and encounter control revolves around simple principles that can be applied to encounters in the Ring or any other aspect of life.
Dr. Senu-Oke understands that there is an inseverable relationship between mind, body, and spirit. As Kung Fu is an expression of mental and physical discipline in ones way of life, Dr. Senu-Oke enhances students’ physical fitness through study and application of nutritional and physiologic science to deepen their understanding of health and wellness. This of course carries lasting and life changing ramifications in all aspects of the dedicated student’s life.
Believing that education is the most important gateway to understanding one’s self and his environment, Dr. Senu-Oke encourages his students to double their educational efforts outside of the Kung Fu classroom as well. He encourage the study of mathematics, physics, philosophy, linguistics, human anatomy, biology, chemistry, etc. as they enhance one’s personal efforts outside of Kung fu as well as enhance there understanding of the very cerebral concepts being taught at Jow Ga Kung Fu.

He has become recognized by his peers and international organizations such as the World Organization of Wushu and Kung Fu Masters for his achievements in and contributions to Kung Fu.
