About Grandmaster Wang Ful-Lai
Since his youth, he studied under Grandmaster Wang Shu-Jin (no blood relation), from whom he received all the teachings of the Zhong-Nan lineage. It is one of the most complete preservations of Ba Gua Zhang and Hsing I Ch’uan currently taught worldwide.
Grandmaster Wang Shu-Jin founded the Cheng Ming Martial Arts Association in Taiwan. Upon the death of Wang Shu-Jin in 1981, Master Wang Fu-Lai assumed the position of Grandmaster.
He teaches in Taiwan, Japan, the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Australia. He is also a 4th-generation master of Ba Gua Zhang in the lineage of the modern-day founder, Tung Hai-Ch’uan.
Workshop COVID-19 Protocol
Masks will be required at all indoor and outdoor workshop events. Please be mindful of others and maintain social distancing. Although you yourself may benefit from a high level of protection if you are vaccinated, there is evidence that vaccinated individuals can still transmit the virus. We have a responsibility to protect our community, which includes immunocompromised adults as well as children who are not eligible for the vaccine. Rather than thinking of these protective measures as “restrictions,” try approaching them as a way to improve your practice by working with the sensing, awareness, and respect at the heart of Cheng Ming.
Mild Delta variant symptoms are easily mistaken for a cold and include headache, sore throat, sneezing, runny nose, and congestion. If you have any of these symptoms, or more classic COVID symptoms (fever, dry cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell), please do not attend.
There will be no refunds given, but you will be credited for future workshops.
