Patrick studied Tai Chi with Gregory Fong, a Tai Chi teacher from Hong Kong, in Portland, Oregon for over 10 years between 1979 and 1990. He intensively studied the Yang style, some Chen style, Hsingi style, and Standing Meditation. Born on the Big Island, Patrick left at 11 years old for the Alaskan bush, where he lived in Naknick, Kodyac, Katsibue, and Nome. Beginning at age 16, he studied boat building, which eventually brought him to Tacoma, Washington to gain further expertise in wooden sail boat building at Bates College. After returning to Hawai’i in 1990, Patrick reconnected with a great uncle who had been raised in traditional Hawaiian ways, and was a native Hawaiian speaker. From him, Patrick learned much Hawaiian language and culture, from constructing nets to performing Hawaiian ceremony. Patrick now resides in South Kona with his wife (and founder) Linde.
