These days, there is a growing interest in Chinese martial arts, also known as gkung fu.h I was born in Taiwan, and from the time I was a child, I was interested in these arts, which are often practiced in parks and other open spaces in town. When I was 15 years old, I was initiated into the school of Master Hong Yixiang, who is an authority in the Chinese martial arts community of Taiwan. In addition, I served as a guide for junior students, while continuing to receive instruction from Master Hong and my seniors. I was able to participate in several national open martial arts tournaments that were held annually, with good results, including a national championship title. The publication of this book in Japan represents a good opportunity to correctly educate readers on the subject of Chinese martial arts. So, with special permission from Master Hong, I have decided to examine gShaolin Monkey Fist,h an art passed down from Northern China.
There are many styles of Chinese martial arts which have been passed down from ancient times. Shaolin Monkey Fist is a precious example among these arts. It consists of light, agile movements, mimicking the nature of the animals it takes its name from. It is a truly combat-oriented martial art.
Although this book explains basic theory and technique, it also uses stop-motion photography to accurately convey the ideas. Since Shaolin Monkey Fist is explained in both theory and application through pictures, I hope that it becomes a good source of information for those who study Chinese martial arts.
I would also like to thank those who cooperated in the publication of this book, including Master Hongfs senior photographer, Mr. K?itiro Ozeki, and the Airyudo editorial department.
