Teja Bell began his journey studying martial arts in 1965. Beginning with Judo and Kung Fu, his teacher was Tatsumo Makami. At younger age, he competed in tournaments and did full contact fighting. He received a black belt ranking in Tae Kwon Do Karate with In Mok Kim. Shortly thereafter, he started learning Yoga and Meditation with Sarah Plummer. In 1969 he branched off to explore Theosophy and Zen Meditation just to get into studying Aikido with Jeff Fox Sensei in 1971. He continued his Aikido studies with Robert Nadeau Shihan and Frank Doran Shihan at City Aikido in San Francisco. Yang Style Tai Chi and Qigong followed, taught by Li Leita, who was a lineage Master in the Yang style of Tai Chi.

During this time, Teja created a series of advanced training programs for students preparing for black belt level examinations as well as creating and teaching children's Aikido programs at the old Tam Dojo, what is now Aikido of Tamalpais. He also trained with the well-known Aikidoists Richard Strozzi-Heckler, Wendy Palmer Sensei and George Leonard Senseis. In 1984 he traveled to Japan where he studied with the late Saito Sensei and lived at the Iwama Dojo. Upon returning to the States, Teja studied with Bruce Kumar Frantizis in Chinese Internal Martial Arts as well as Qigong. He learned the three systems of Chinese internal martial arts: Wu Style (long form and short form), Xing-Yi and BaGua. He also studied with Sifu Paul Dillon, learning the esoteric martial art and meditation system Liu He Ba Fa.

Teja Bell now has 5th degree black belt in Aikido, awarded to him by Nadeau Sensei and teaches a Low Impact form of Aikido. He offers on-going classes in Aikido, Meditation and Qigong and is a teacher of Dr. Richard Paul's Critical Thinking. He is a regular teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center and is the Martial Arts instructor and Qigong teacher at Hollow Bones
