Lofty Mei Hua Quan

plum blossom boxingWe’ve all seen the pictures: stealthy practitioners holding postures (usually single-legged) atop wooden poles. These, my friends, are the iconic images most associated with the under-recognized style of Mei Hua Quan (Plum Blossom Boxing).

But under-recognized no more! This new book, Mei Hua Quan Tong Yi, adjusts the balance of how little (or much) is known about this great style. At over 450 pages, it is a comprehensive look at the history, culture, theory, and people of Mei Hua.

Although the one thing it does not contain is instruction, the book below it on the page DOES serve up quite a banquet of routines and instruction, including the famous pole work.
