New Chinese Martial Arts Journal Starts

A new Chinese martial arts journal has recently made its debut. The Journal of Chinese Martial Studies is a twice yearly English-language publication from Hong Kong. Featuring scholar-practitioners such as Ma Mingda, Lam Chun Fai, and Taijiquan Journal advisor Stanley Henning, the journal's first issue features articles on Shaolin boxing, taijiquan, ancient boxing manuals, the archery tradition of the Orochen minority group, and other subjects. Similar in approach to the Journal of Asian Martial Arts in the desire to blend practice and intellectual reflection, this new entry focuses strictly on China. The first issue of the journal is available online as a PDF.
