Description: Gomes, a devout Christian, focuses on Breath, Mind, Spirit during his talk and how simple meditation and breathing techniques can improve health and return balance to life.
Sifu Jurey Gomes is a recognised and decorated martial arts practitioner and founder of the Fist of Nothingness system of martial arts. His interest in the discipline began in 1974 at the Antigua Grammar School where he was taught.
From 1980 to present Sifu Gomes has been entering (and winning) international martial arts competitions.
He holds a first degree black belt from the National College of Martial Arts (NCMA) in Missouri, USA; second degree black belts from both the International Kyodai Ryu Karate Academy, Puerto Rico and Go-Ju-Ryu Karate Academy; and a fifth degree black belt in Wu’chikwon-do Karate. Sifu Gomes also teaches the popular Tai Chi Chuan style of Chinese martial arts.
Throughout his exploration of Eastern combat styles, Sifu Gomes has found spirituality to be at the core of all disciplines and he has studied with the Universal Foundation of Taoism, a Chinese philosophy rooted in harmony, for over 25 years.
