Wudang Dragon Gate School, Maryland
I started training in martial arts in 1966 when I was 16 years old. My first teacher was Master Jing Xiangbao. We mainly practiced basics for Shaolin Kung Fu and Chinese wrestling. Several years later I became a disciple of Master Pei Xirong, who was a friend of my father. I learned Xing Yi and Bagua, then Wudang Wushu and Taiji. For Xing Yi we concentrated on the five basic fists, and for Bagua it was the mud gliding step. For Bagua you must move like a Dragon, swing about like a Monkey, and change postures like an Eagle.
