Instructor Duran Mack has had a unique life. At age 7, his father , Andy Mack met his teacher Adam Mizner. Not long after this meeting, Andy and Adam , and subsequently Duran, moved in together, sharing a house on the Gold Coast, Australia. Duran lived with his dad and Sifu Adam for about 2 and half years.
When he was 12 , he moved to Melbourne to join his father. His father had set up a full time, live in HME school. They were joined by Sifu Curtis Brough, Senior Instructor Paul McIntyre, and 2 other HME students.
Duran would wake up to training , he would come home from school to wrestle with his ‘uncles’, and then partake in class in the evening, and go to sleep to the sound of more training.
The school was run in a traditional Chinese kungfu fashion, so Duran had his fair share of chores and obligations to fulfill. When Duran was 14, he and his father moved to Thailand. For 6 months they travelled throughout the country, staying and meditating in temples and remote locales with Thai masters. Duran continued his education at an international school, while his dad continued to train and live like a hermit,for the next 4 years. Duran has continued to live and work with his father as an HME Instructor and Qigong Tuina therapist throughout Europe, and now London.
