    Zinio comes out around the same time as the newsstand date...

    ...plus or minus a day or two. Thanks for asking.

    50% of the articles are written (or co-written) by you. Are folks not submitting articles to the magazine or do you just have tons of stored up material?

    Chinese typo on page 84. Based on what Wu saying, it should be qian 謙 (hexagram 15), not qian 乾 (hexagram 1). Submitted in the spirit of continual improvement.

    We stand corrected.

    Good catch, Taijiren. I'm delighted to see that someone is actually reading the Chinese characters as we put a lot of work into getting those inserted. In this case, we grabbed the qian #1 because we were just moving too fast due to deadline pressure. Our bad. As for typos, well, that's par for the course. I often say that you can tell how authentically Chinese it is by the typos.

    You read my Publisher's Corner too, yes? Now you see why there's so many by me in this issue, too many for my tastes to be honest, but that event was quite fruitful.

    Thumbs up Dining table kung fu & Yang family spear

    I just got the new edition of kung fu tai chi, and i really loved the article of 'Dining table kung fu & Yang family spear'. I made the mistake of reading it at work, and laughing out loud while reading the 2nd paragraph explaining the 'Dining table 6 Cuts 18 Strikes'.
    I laughed even harder when I was explaining why the concept of stabbing someone in the eyes and heart with chopsticks (purely in a self defense context)is funny, especially as they have witnessed me at work doing my excercises to strengthen my ability to use chopsticks.
    The chopsticks is one weapon that I would really like to learn. Pole, spear, Nunchukka, 3 section staff, these are all cool, and given the opportunity to learn these would be nothing short of an honour, but for me its the simple weapons that dont look intimidating, or freaky, that get my imagination going. Its one weapon that I hope does not get lost due to unpopularity.
    Respect and admiration to the Yang family for revealing their family history and culture, and to Gene Ching and Gigi Oh for writing it.
    You made my day
