    "I consider Dr. Eisen to be one of the leading instructors in the practice of the classic forms of Asian Health and Martial Art traditions. Drawing on a lifetime of discipline and experience, he is able to instruct on a practical and explicit basis. His teaching methods require attention, patience and practice, but will prove to be a tremendous asset in the development of ones course of study in any of these fields.
