Attention Gene Ching:

I read your article on Ma Xianda with great interest. We met him in 1998 while in Xian. His comments on basic training are very interesting. The baji lineage lines are related.

We have just finished pictures for an article on training for punching power (fa Jing) in baji--its traditional basic training and I like to discuss it with you further. If you could please contact me through my PM on this website so I might give you the details.

Hey Thanks! That was really my boss, Gigi Oh's piece. I just put into betterer English, so to speak ;) I've actually never met Ma.

GM Ma is a very interesting character, quite outspoken and very easy to work with. This is the first time that we are trying a cross media format - in the magazine, you get the abriged article, but additional sidebars like Ma's life history and the other 9 duan http://store.yahoo.com/martialartsmart/kf200213.html. In the ezine, you get the unabridged article http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/ezine/article.php?article=244 .

As for your submission, that sound interesting. Here are our writer's guides - http://ezine.kungfumagazine.com/about/guidelines.html After you reveiw, them, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Thanks for your quick reply. I will look over the submission guidelines and submit in 3 weeks. We have the Hall of Fame Tournament coming up on Oct 5,6, and 7. So as we clean up business we will finish it.

Thanks again.
