In this episode, we talk to Kung Fu master and trained Monk, Sifu Richard Baron.

Richard owns a kung fu temple that helps people attack and destroy all different types of issues that they have had trouble dealing with in other places. His students suffer from issues like Diabetes, Social Anxiety, Stress, and many others. Martial Arts is an effective way to deal with and fix these issues. By going through physical motions of attack and psychologically envisioning your opponent to be the issue that you are diagnosed with allows you to destroy the problem.
