Healing Arts


Sr Grandmaster Crimi is retired now, but he devoted over 50 years of his life to healing those in need. Ever since he was a child he had a penchant for helping and protecting people. When he met his mentor, Sr Professor Estes, who was a Master of ancient Japanese healing arts, this propensity intensified. His education and practice in these healing systems led him into mastery of Seifukujitsu and Katsu-Ho. To round things out he worked extensively with herbs, supplements, nutrition, and his own system of meditation to holistically help his clients achieve a better quality of life. Thousands of people worldwide have benefitted from his care and education. Since 1977, he has run the Hikari Ryuza Center®, a successful Martial Arts, health, and wellness center in Penn Valley, Ca. He partners with a group of professionals to provide a multi-pronged, holistic approach to health and wellness.
