China can easily boast of its great martial traditions, which many would say is the richest in the world. There are a variety of styles from the north to the south that encompass an extensive repertoire of open-hand and weapon techniques. The ten chapters in this Via Media anthology illustrated this wide spectrum. We hope you will enjoy the material in this Via Media anthology, the personal stories of dedicated masters, and the rare photographs of their history and techniques.
