When I was contacted by my old friend, Master Michael Fuchs, to consider writing a foreword to his new book “The Shaolin Butterfly Style – Art of Transformation” I must admit I was less than enthused. My first thought was yet another “me too” how to – Kung Fu book.
Michael sent me the manuscript, and I picked it up and read it straight through – very unlike me – to find a book on the arts that would engage my attention so resolutely. Of course one of the elements that bore great historical significance was the role played by the great Grandmaster Daniel Pai, a man larger than life with whom I had spent some time, during the formation of the Chinese Kuoshu Worldwide Promotion Association in the late 1970s. GM Danny Pai was quite legitimate – he was the “real thing” – and was so dynamic you would instantly sense his abilities by just being in his presence.
The book – “The Shaolin Butterfly Style – Art of Transformation” has been so well written by Michael that it becomes an instructional manual with the historical and philosophical significance required of a true transformation work. At the same time, the book lays a framework for the physical development and technical description of both technique and application.
Whether you are a novice in the Martial Arts or one with decades of training, you will most certainly gain knowledge and insight from experiencing – “The Shaolin Butterfly Style – Art of Transformation.”
