I am who I am today because of practicing Chinese Martial Arts. Chinese Martial Arts is a life prolonging, mental, and spiritual training. I love both the external and internal sides of the art, not only the forms, but the applications, theories, Daoist and Buddhist philosophies behind them. Above all, what fascinates me the most is universal truth that we may discover thru the training of this art. Chinese Martial Arts is so beautiful and profound. From its thousands years of history, we are able to see the wisdom of our ancestors. Although it is originated from China, it belongs to the whole world. The learning and training of Chinese Martial Arts is an inseparable part of my life and will never stop.
