About the Author

Born in 1929 in Shanghai, Grand Master Shih represents the fifth generation of Chinese medicine doctors and qigong masters in his family lineage. He began his study of qigong at the age of eleven when he contracted malaria during the World War II Japanese bombing of Shanghai.

Format: Paperback
Swimming Dragon is an old Taoist exercise, both I and the many people I have shared it with have found great health benefits.
To anyone with some simple understanding of things like Chi Kung and traditional Chinese Medicine and lots of perseverence, this book provides enough information to master the exercise.
As this is apparently the only current source in print, it is a must to anyone interested in this Taoist art.
