Plum’s first mission statement included the words, “…to preserve and promote Traditional Chinese Martial Arts.” That was almost 20 years ago, and every decision we make is still informed by that idea, whether we are deciding on a new addition to our catalogue, writing a book, creating video tutorials, or preparing an article for kaimen.
Part of our program is to make available, even if we have to reprint them ourselves, important works on this precious Art. One of the most requested, out of print titles is Sun LuTang’s Xing Yi Boxing Studies (Xing Yi Quan Xue), and we are very pleased to announce that we are now in the printing process, and expect it will be in our hands in a couple of weeks. We know that some of you have been waiting a long time for this classic text, translated by Albert Liu and edited and compiled by Dan Miller. Now the wait is only two more weeks, and to help it along, pre-orders will get a 10% discount.
