Yuen graduated from Manhattan College in 1964. A former aerospace engineer, he is also noted for his expertise in tai chi and qigong, as well as feng shui. He authored several books on the subject including Beginning Kung-Fu and Technique and Form of the Three Sectional Staff in Kung Fu (Literary links to the Orient). He is also a 2012 inductee in the Martial Arts History Museum’s Hall of Fame. In addition, World Black Belt has called him a living legend. He is also a doctor of chiropractic and now consults patients who suffer from chronic pain.His method was initially called Yuen Energetics, but it was changed to the “Yuen Method”, co-founded with Marnie Greenberg. According to Yuen and Greenberg, the Yuen Method “relieves pain through feeling for the exact causes of pain… [termed] weaknesses, then strengthening the deletion process for the deletion to take place, ”and the process then resets “the mind, body, spirit”. He authored several self-help titles on the subject, including Delete Pain and Stress On the Spot (co-authored with Greenberg), The Power of Instant Healing, Instant Rejuvenation and Instant Pain Elimination.
