    It is a comparison of Shuai Jiao with some other styles of wrestling

    Those other styles include Western wrestling, Greco Roman, Mongolian, Sumo, Judo and Ssireum.

    Is the Master on the new cover a Sanda Master? Impressive stance and projection of power. Looks like you guys really packed this issue. Will be after it.

    Our cover master is Sun Jiankui

    If anything, he's actually a wushu master.

    Master Sun was first gen wushu, a major rival of Jet Li, and the inventor of what we now know as drunken staff. He's now in movies. It's a big story as Master Sun was eyewitness to a lot of PRC martial history since the CR - you'll just have to read it.

    Master Sun looks familiar, phoenix eye backfist is something I hadn't seen before, just didn't know how much Sanda practitioners are into different hand technique outside of glove use, will have to look into it though. Thanks!

    Isn't that a dragon fist? Phoenix eye is index finger knuckle and the dragon is middle finger knuckle. The dragon fist, back fist version is normally used to target the heart and throat. Sneaky little strike! I'm sure there are more uses, but that's how I learned it.

    Thanks for info! Did not notice which knuckle was protruding, ha! Like a centerline backfist, thanks for including strike zone.

    Wink Extra Magazine

    Hey Gene,

    I just renewed my sub the other day after receiving the notice in this months issue. So I figured while I was renewing I would order some new shoes, placed my order and received them on Friday. Now I dont mind getting extra stuff when I order items, however I was not expecting to receive another copy of the current issue, so thanks for that. I can donate it to my school and maybe net y'all a new subscriber!

    Any chance I can get a shirt?

    Wait...they gave you an extra copy of *this* issue with your order?

    There is a promo going on at MartialArtsMart.com right now where you get a free copy of Kung Fu Tai Chi 2003 Jan/Feb Issue. I think that's with a $50+ purchase. If they sent you the Mar+Apr 2014, that was an error.
