Ni Hao! Welcome to my travel & martial arts website! My name is Will. For the past decade I have been travelling Asia seeking out the most respected and authentic masters of martial arts. I want to share my training, travel & martial arts research and experiences with you, in the hope I may be able to dispell some myths, and make it more accessible. Some of this information I have presented here for the first time in the English language. At the same time, some Chinese Kung Fu styles are incredibly rare, if not almost unknown outside of China.
Who Am I?
I was always fascinated with travel & martial arts as a kid. As soon as I turned 18, I made the decision to pack my bags and head to China. Since then, I have traveled throughout China and Asia, teaching English, training Chinese Kung Fu, eating everything from silk worms to live octopus, drinking tea with monks, drinking copious amounts of alcohol with communist party officials, getting all too many black eyes and fat lips, having an AK47 pointed right at me and still, the journey continues…
Why Travel & Martial Arts?
To me, travel & martial arts are two of the most enriching things in my life. Travel brings us new experiences and exposes us to different ways of life, while martial arts encourages us to challenge ourselves and overcome obstacles. Together these are the perfect match. Browse the pages above to read about the different styles and teachers I’ve met and trained martial arts with. There is also a section where you can find listings of kung fu schools and information about travel and work in Asia.
Please don’t forget to click the “like” tabs and share the pages you enjoyed the most with your friends. If you like this site, consider supporting me on Patreon and get access to all kinds of extras, including tutorials and training clips. I always love to meet up with fellow martial artists on my travels, so if I’m in your area, drop me a line and we can get together for coffee, a beer or training.
