    There are two types of Chinese martial artists. Those who can fight and those who should be teaching dance or yoga!

    53 years of training, 43 years of teaching and still aiming for perfection!

    Recovering Forms Junkie! Even my twelve step program has four roads!

    The trip was more than I expected or could have hoped for!

    I just got back home today.

    Shifu Zhang Weifu has just opened a new school in Qingdao that has a space that is being turned into living quarters. Soon it will be open for short and long term foreign students.

    You can contact me for more details as they arise at: r-tolson@sbcglobal.net

    The cost for my trip was much more reasonable than many might imagine. Here is an approximate breakdown of my costs in US dollars:

    Round trip Air China ticket: $1,115
    Passport: I already had one. A new one costs $165.
    Expedited Visa: less than $400
    Total hotel bill for seven days: $120
    Total cost of the buffet breakfast at the hotel for seven days: $20
    Instructional Fee: Private, but far less than a year's tuition at a typical kung fu school or gym.

    I trained with Shifu Zhang Weifu of Qingdao. Shifu Zhang is an eighth generation inheritor of Haojia Taiji Meihua Tanglangquan.

    Shifu Zhang, along with Shifu Yu Tianlu and his sons, was chosen to demonstrate traditional tanglangquan for the manual, Textbook Series of Chinese Wushu Duanwei System and it's accompanying DVDs. This textbook contains the "examination criteria of Chinese wushu duanwei system".

    I relearned Zhai Yao Yi Lu according to Haojia standards as taught by Shifu Zhang and I learned the Liu Shi Ba Ji Ji Fa form. As well as all the fighting applications of each form.
