Master Peter Hill,
I would like to thank you for the effort and time you have put into training me and helping me become a better person. I know I could not have ever found the determination into changing the world around me until I learned first to change myself.. Through Taichi, my life has become less stressful and healthier. I have begun to spread the knowledge you have shared with me with others who find themselves lost. I understand their challenges because I was on my way to becoming a lifelong gangster girl until taichi and it’s wisdom of personal responsibility and body-mind mastery slowly sunk in. Many more people are now helped through Taichi and your wisdom. Thanks for everything you have done for me.
“My individual session with Master Hill was “just what the doctor ordered” in my martial arts program. In part, it was the right approach with the right art, and the rest was that he is an excellent teacher. He reached me on all levels, from communication and knowledge to good humor and more intangibles than I can list. My only regret in the lesson is that I didn’t have a better camera at hand. I also might have spoken up louder, as my quiet part was greatly lost in the filming (at least I know what I said).
I was practically stunned by my introduction to Tai Chi from his perspectivee. Any Tai Chi class is always a great experience, but he was able to catch every occasion of my form slipping, which would likely have gone unnoticed in a group. I never realized that my center was too far forward, and the evidence of our centerlock exercise (how grounding negates the stress on joint-locked limbs) was like magic to me. I’m normally at leasts twice as sensitive to joint locks and pressure point manipulations, and have always been ticklish to a fault (and emotionally sensitive as well). Through the grounding/rooting focus, I am certain to correct my imbalances.
The amount of material was only eclipsed by the quality of it. The experience was beyond anything I’ve seen in my ten years (compressed time) of training in several arts.
Thank you very much for offering this generous program that is nothing short of deep water. I’m on board to make the most of it.”
“Even though I got into martial arts primarily to learn how to defend myself and others from physical threats, I had the unique advantage of training with Master Hill who seamlessly folded the philosophy of the arts into his lessons. Because of this, I’ve grown physically a lot healthier as well as emotionally a lot more steadfast.Martial arts has shaped the way I see the world, allowing me to see all problems as simple challenges that need overcoming and helping me to understand the true natures of discipline and patience. Without these things, I do not think that I would be in anywhere near the same position I am today.While martial arts hasn’t always been my goal, it has always shown me the way to find my path.”Eric 18 (ASU student)

“Throughout my 9 years of law enforcement, I have never received any training as beneficial as Peter Hill’s G.E.T.I.T. Integrative Arts locks and self-defense programs. It is simple and effective for street use and it should be taught to all law enforcement officers.
Kevin Watkins – Deputy Sheriff

“Peter Hill’s concepts and principles pack years of training into a single weekend.”
Ray Saint – SKA America’s Best Martial Arts Center
Peter has the best locks curriculum I have ever seen. His three tape set is a very well thought out integrated approach to teaching a wide variety of locks, counters and applications complete with drills. I’m working through the tapes in our Black Belt classes and there’s plenty to keep us busy. Best video investment i’ve made in years.- wish I had bought it sooner.

“I trained in taichi for a year but it wasn’t until I started training with Peter Hill’s g.e.t.i.t. integrative arts taichi program that i finally felt the integration between my mind and body start to actualize. I am amazed at how these seemingly simple exercises have had such a profound effect on my physical, emotional and mental balance.”

“The G.E.T.I.T. program is not just about health, but it is about self-empowerment and reliance to produce harmony in our lives. We have choices in the variety of conflicts we encounter; we are only victims in our lack of knowledge and power.”
I used to dream about finding a program like this and then I literally walked in and it changed my life forever.
It continues to help me evolve and grow as I cultivate and test my knowledge, power and love everyday.”
WOW! I got the first two videos in the mail (taichi concepts and 5 organ set)and was very impressed with the info. Can’t wait until the next one comes!
