Chinese Gong Fu: Toward a Body-Centered Understanding

Updated: Jul 11, 2019

My second book, Chinese Gong Fu: Toward a Body-Centered Understanding, is due to be released October 31, 2019. The amazing cover art can be seen below. This book has been a decade in the making. It is about martial arts, my personal journey and experiences, and the profound discoveries that changed my perspective of how kung fu (gong fu) is practiced. It is considered cultural anthropology, supported with research in embodiment theory and cognitive science, but anyone can read it and learn something about the martial arts experience, as well as all the ancient philosophies embedded in the practice. The book is available for pre-order now.
