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.

Transcending Style with the Internal Arts - Part 3

To My Students and Friends

I just arrived home from China a week ago and it was truly a historic trip could only be possible with the help of my dear friend Master Jiang Liu and the Chinese Government.

Grandmaster Chiao Chang-Hung dream was to visit his home and to spread the art of Little Nine Heaven Wu Tao kung fu throughout the world so it will live on for many years to come. Now his wish and dream will be a reality.


Last week was the beginning of the inevitable. Years ago as a young man Chiao Chang-Hung trained hard at the San Quin Taoist temple, on the Yi Wu-Lu Mountain in China. Years later because of the Chinese Revolution war Master Chiao had to leave for Taiwan leaving behind his beloved country and his master.

In this newsletter you will realize his dream is becoming a reality as parts of Little Nine Heaven Wu Tao is being taught all over the world and Grandmaster Chiao Chang-Hung name will live on forever.
