About the Author
Growing up in Taipei, Taiwan in 1960's, I used to see many people practicing martial arts in the park every morning. Much inspired by the diligence shown by practitioners, I started to practice Tan Tui and Chinese wrestling (Shuai Jiao). From the Kuoshu club in high school, I learned Mantis boxing (Tang Lang) and some swordplay. With private teachers, I learned Tong Bei and Ba Ji in 1970's. During the college years, Chen style Tai Chi and Cheng style Ba Gua were introduced to me. I maintained a training schedule after lessons from teachers. Practice of Chinese martial arts is always a big part of my life
