Hello out there, Uncle Sickness here. I wanted to let you know about some new developments here at Lessons Learned in the World of Martial Arts that have me very excited! To start, I'm currently working on a book concerning applying the 36 Stratagems to unarmed combat. It's very exciting, & I'm hoping you'll enjoy reading it as much as I'm enjoying writing it. There's still some way to go before it's ready to publish, but I wanted to share the news with you! The original purpose of this site, to share theoretical material & articles I found interesting, is mating an end. I've almost finished translating the Boxing Manuals for Xingyiquan, Baguazhang, & Tanglangquan, so the material is nearly exhausted. Interesting articles from China will continue to appear from time to time, but my focus is going to more original writing in English. So, with some luck & few generous beatings, my associates will finally be contributing as well. (You know who you are, guys!) As for the future, I'm upgrading my technology & technical abilities, so that podcasting & Youtube are possible. My current unemployment is a problem for this particular plan, so please don't expect anything too soon in that regard. There's also a few other projects & ideas in the works, but I'd like to save those for a future announcement. In the meantime, continue to build up your Kung fu, & together we can enrich the World of Martial Arts!!
