About Sifu Kelley

Artist. Husband. Father. Teacher. I am the child of a concert pianist and Navy Seal. I pursued jazz sax through childhood, then, as a young man, Architecture & Fine Arts. This formal education led to early career adventures in feature film production.
I am curious, passionate, loyal, dedicated, persistent and open. I use art and movement to share the fullness of life. I am happy with simple living. I employ dry sarcasm, irony and obscure literary references to express anger and dissatisfaction with injustice, ignorance and indifference.
Since I was 10 I have maintained an intensive mind-body training regimen. I bring together all my experience and understanding at the Urban Retreat Center.
