Nyskick. Master Chang, known as the scholar-boxer, lived and practiced in Henan province, at the center of Chinese culture and martial arts near the Shaolin Temple and legendary Luoyang. His extensive writings reflect many of the ideas, even the phraseology, now familiar from classic Tai Chi Chuan texts. Chinese-language authority Marnix Wells traveled to Chang s village, where the master s family carries on his tradition of Chang boxing. This resulting study of Chang s life and teachings reveals the true origins of today s internal martial arts."
