    Flying Crane - I am very happy to provide the fishing rods to remind you of my humble origins. Please send me your email address and I will send you the payment details. Kung Fu Wang - Grandmaster Yang was taught by a blind monk known only as Lu. Consequently the tradition has been passed down...

    Lee Bagua Jitsu - fear not the audiobook is on the way. Lee kindly funded and then reviewed ‘How to Train the Wong Way’ under my instruction, giving it 5/5. As Lee knows I am incredibly generous to my students and offer large discounts on all my courses, books, articles, podcasts and ornaments...

    In fairness to me I was described as "humble" by the Abbot of the Tiger Temple, so it's not like I'm just saying that about myself - it's someone else's opinion.

    To answer the issue of an audiobook - I will be releasing "I've Done It All Wong", my autobiography that documents my rise from youngling through to warrior and finally monk in ebook form. I hadn't considered recording an audiobook, but if there is appetite I will consider it. I am very happy to...

    I know - for instance - that Abbot Wu journeyed to the south to learn their styles. I remember him saying they are more appropriate to fighting in confined spaces. The fighters of old would train on moving boats, hence the emphasis on wide horse stance for stability. However, Wu and I famously...

    Gentlemen - no need to fight amongst yourselves. Just because it says 'Sr Grandmaster' under Flying Crane's avatar, I'm sure he means no harm to the masters of old (like Li). I'll tell you why it is important. I was studying the classics in the great library of our temple the other day when an...

    Let us turn our attention to something important; what would you say are the main differences (in broad generalisations) between the northern and southern styles?

    I'm not at all and I resent the allegation! I am simply here to discuss the martial arts - nothing more and nothing less.

    You strongly remind me of a student I once had called Chan. He came to the temple one day saying, "Oi Wong, your style isn't worth its salt - I could give you a bunch of fives." I calmly told him I am a man of peace not of warcraft. However, he would not back down. "Very well", I proclaimed...

    It's interesting how when people get intimidated they resort to mockery. Let me ask you this - does the heron throw insults when it gets afraid? Does the might leopard quake in its boots when confronting the noble tiger? No, they move like water in a river, passing by a stone.

    Well well well, methinks Aegis doth protest too much. Let me ask you this then - what style do you practise?

    Apologies for the slow response here - roughly two thirds of the time I attempt to log into this site it is not working. I am happy to offer some advice as my site - The Temple of Monk Wong - functions 100 percent of the time and is considered marvellous by the many people who frequent it. Now...

    Tiger Temple is in Henan Province. As I stated, I agree - phoenix eye is generally aimed at soft parts of the body, but during the heat of battle we all make mistakes. I struck him at the 'gate of consciousness' point and it knocked him out. Would I say this is the optimum way to do things? No...

    What constitutes proof in your book? These are not fantasies but real life stories from my times as a youngling and now a warrior monk. If I were lying why would I be known as "the true hero of the East" in many martial arts circles? Doesn't make sense unless what I'm saying is true. I can...

    Happy to answer all these questions. The ancient texts I studied were - the Tao Te Ching, the Yi Ching, the Mahayana Sutras, the Tibetan Book of the Dead, the Analects and Master Li’s family text. The Tiger Temple is in China. The warrior part - I understand that traditionally there are places...

    I am happy to prove I am both a monk and a warrior. Monk: I have studied from the ancient texts and took a blood oath at the Tiger Temple after completing my training as a youngling. I'm very happy to talk about my monastic life if you have any questions. Warrior: Let me tell you a story from...

    Your approach is wise - and I appreciate you not rambling about pinyin and local dialects, it is most refreshing. While I understand your approach here, is your Xingyi closer in form to Heibei or Shanxi (or Henan) style?

    If starting in a San Ti position (with left foot forward), the right fist lands when the right foot lands (near the left foot). It works on a principle known as 'six harmonies' - Kung Fu Wang, what is your mother style? Then perhaps I can explain in more detail.

    Wong Training

    Hey Kung Fu Wang. Crushing fist is a technique from Xingyiquan. To train it you need a good foundation in the style - I suggest San Ti and some Li Gong exercises. It is one of the five primary fists of the style and relies on moving the body as a unit.

    Still posting about English language vs Chinese language even after the moderator warned you? Stop mate, it's really childish. So, I'll ask again - who trains golden bell?

    "Huanquan" - you're shown your true colours!! It's "Heng Chuan". I'd stop digging this linguistic grave for yourself if I were you mate; it's getting embarrassing. It's interesting how you were unimpressed by my story, but five masters who were there were - and I quote - "blown away" by what...

    Anyway, let's discuss something that has been on my mind recently. Do any of you train Golden Bell?

    Yes I do know the application of Bengquan and Piquan - did you not understand my story? Give it another read - apologise I didn't write in in Chinese with Pinyin, but I thought seeing as this is an English language forum I'd stick to English. It was Northern Mantis not Southern White Crane -...

    I have trained extensively in Hebei Xingyiquan, and yes - I do want to 'go there'. Xue Sheng we are all very impressed at your Pinyin skills, maybe time to give it a rest and discuss martial arts rather than attempting (and failing at) linguistic foolery? While some on this forum are highly...

    Apologies to everyone else, it appears Xue is having trouble following so I will repost my question - Let us discuss a matter of great importance; some say the Beng Chuan from Xingyiquan is the most powerful punch in Chinese martial arts - what do you think? Try to answer in English if...

    Since when did I have no idea of anything? You are assuming a lot here and it makes you appear as a fool. Interesting how you dodged my question about martial arts because you were too scared to answer too.

    Get out of the way? I started this thread - it is you who is in my way. It is you who incessantly brings up Chinese language and Wuxia rather than a real discussion of the martial arts. I am a monk and a warrior. You sir are nothing but an aspiring linguist of the internet. Now, enough of this...
