The Systems Taught to Master McNeil

Site map

Master James W. McNeil has for over forty years been learning, living and teaching the inner mysteries and secrets of the traditional, internal kung-fu arts. In the course of history such knowledge was normally reserved for the elite few within the closed circles of the oriental Taoist societies. Until McNeil came on the scene it was unheard of for any outsider, let alone a white American, to be accepted as a student by the great martial art Masters of China and Taiwan.

Unbelievable Pain - August Newsletter

To My Students and Friends

I hope all of you are in good health, happy and doing well. It is August already and of course the weather is warm and nice.

I am writing this newsletter hoping that more people would be aware and understand the pain that many men and women are going through. I hope the next time you see someone with a cane, walker, crutches or in a wheelchair you will give them a little more understanding and consideration that they don’t want to be the way they are.

The student of the month is Julie Jackson a fantastic student, loving wife, loving daughter and a dear friend to many.

Journey Towards Master Chiao Chang Hung's Dream

To my students and friends,

I am on my way home from England, Spain and Russia. I had a great time and enjoyed teaching and seeing my old students again and of course the new ones. The weather has been great which ever country I was in.

This newsletter is the first of a few to show our journey to the mountain Grandmaster Chiao lived close to and also the temple he lived and trained at called San Quin Temple we will also show you different Taoist temples we visited and the beauty of China and the beautiful kind people I met in Shanghai and Beijing on the way to our journey to Grandmaster Chiao’s home and temple.

Yiwulü Mountain

Very few if any of Grandmaster Chiao students, grand students, family or friends have ever seen a picture of his home where he once lived, the temple he live/trained in, let alone known the name of his master in a few days I hope to put up the picture of my Grandmaster Liu Miao-Yuan on my website for those who are interested.

I am hoping that at the end of this year I can retire and spend the rest of my life with my wife & family to meditate, train to straighten my body internal and spirituality, so I can reach my goal and achieve my destiny.

There is a very good chance that I will be in the SEATTLE WASHINTON area sometime around the end of August for a couple of days, it would be nice to meet some of my old student from Canada and Washington for a get together and talk. If interested let me know thank you.

I also may be going to Illinois sometime in September. Spain in November and China October. These are all pending at the moment.

Thank you for all your support to Little Nine Heaven Wu Tao International kung fu,

A New Era for Little Nine Heaven Wu Tao & Master Chiao

I hope all is well. In this month’s newsletter, we will talk about one little girl named Hayden who is diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma cancer. Hayden’s life has been restricted due to her diagnoses and she is not able to enjoy the luxuries that other children get to experience like going outside to play, going swimming, etc. Due to her limited ability to go outside, she has requested a playhouse to play in this summer that will allow her to play like a normal child. There are many other students out there suffering from Cancer who are missing out on the fun, carefree childhood that many of us were able to receive.

The nonprofit organization called is trying to help many of these children and I am hoping that you will all open your hearts and donate whatever you can to help these beautiful children.

In this letter, we will also talk about our Little Nine Heaven Gathering at French Creek State Park in Pennsylvania on August 5th to 12th. I am excited for us all to unite and be one big family! Cabins are filling up. Please sign up now!

I hope each and every one of you will have a successful, healthy and happy summer.
