More About the Author

As a Martial Artist, Fitness Coach (and writer) I have been lucky enough to train all around the globe, in locations as diverse as China, Thailand, the USA and many places within the UK, all within a variety of fascinating styles; from Chinese Kickboxing (Sanda), Shaolin Kung Fu, TaeKwonDo, Thai Boxing and Escrima to more esoteric styles such as Xingyi and Chi Gong.

Along this journey I have also been fortunate to have first hand experience training with leading authorities including world champions, Chinese masters and stars of film and TV.

3.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive guide in chronological order. 8 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A comprehensive guide in chronological order, but each grading stage could have been better formatted with the various stages and tasks leading into each other making the reading of the stages quite laborious.

Having said that, there is everything there for anyone to get an understanding of what is required at each stage.
