What do you do for a living?

-- Nick, England


My profession, I believe, is the best anyone can ever hope for. I give health and happiness to people, and am handsomely paid for it.

I travel around the world and teach people from all walks of life, ranging from monks and nuns to top doctors and corporate presidents.

Most important I enjoy my work tremendously. I am a teacher of chi kung, Shaolin Kungfu and Taijiquan.


How did you become a master?


There are three stages in my becoming a master. First, I was a good student. In fact I was an exemplary student. I respected and honoured my masters, and practiced diligently and devotedly what they taught me.

Then I helped my masters as their assistants in their teaching. Later I set up my own school with many branches.

Thirdly, I was recognized as an authority in the arts I teach. I was awarded chi kung master of the year by my peers, my books were best-sellers and people all over the world asked my advice via the question-answer series of my website.


What is the age of most of you students?


As I have literally thousands of students, though many of whom I may not remember personally as I met them only once in one of my many classes spread over 30 years, my estimate of their average age may not be accurate.

As far as I can remember, my youngest student was only a few weeks of age and my oldest student 85 when they first met me. My youngest student was born with restricted artilleries, and my oldest student had a heart problem so severe that he could hardly walk out of his room. They both recovered. Two years later my oldest student traveled half the globe to Malaysia to learn kungfu from me.

The average age of my Shaolin Kungfu students is 30 years old, that of my Taijiquan students 40 years, and that of my chi kung students 45.
