    Interviews with Gene Ching

    I thought I could post this on some previous thread, but I couldn't find anything suitable. Maybe there will be more and I can add to this later.

    Austin Kung-Fu Academy interviewed me for their podcast: Kung Fu Konversations Ep. 44 – “Journalist From Shaolin: An Interview With Gene Ching

    The interviewer is one of our members here.

    Good stuff. I like your observations about how Kung Fu might see a resurgence as an entertainment art. It will be interesting to see how that would impact the development and styles. IMO - Wushu's too flamboyant and TCMA is too dull, so there will have to be some sort of a compromise.

    On a side note, this is for the guys at Austin Kung Fu Academy - Great work, great idea, loved the podcast, but you may want to look into buying a compressor/limiter/gate. It'll stop that massive fluctuation that you're having between the phone and the live mics. Everyone has their favorite, but the Behringer models aren't that expensive and seem to work well.

    Here's an example of one.
    Everybody has their favorite, so you'll have to do some research to see which one will work for you.

    The Return of Culture Chat with Mimi Chan



    CChat 84: Gene Ching on China’s film market, lightsaber training, and kung fu movies
    October 16, 2018 by M Chan

    Gene Ching is the editor of Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine. Last time he was a guest on the show we discussed weapon making, fencing, drugs, and his evolution as a journalist. Today we discuss the China film market and its relationship to Hollywood. Is China going to take over as the #1 film economy in the world? Listen in for Gene’s opinion and his take on what is happening in the film industry today. We also geek out about lightsaber training, weapons, and reminisce about old school kung fu movies.
    A second chat with my dear friend, Sifu Mimi Chan
