I received the following announcement from my friend and senior, Stanley Henning, an expert on Chinese martial arts. I have been to his home, and he has as much or more material on Chinese martial arts as the Hawaii Karate Museum does on Karate... really.
I have spoken to Stan many times about the connection between Chinese martial arts and Karate. To learn about early Karate, we need to examine Chinese martial arts. Stan practices the art of Hsing-i.
I plan to attend Stan's talk and am looking forward to it. Here is the announcement:
HSPLS - OAHU TEEN PROGRAMSPlease let your friends and fellow martial artists know. I hope to see you there!
Stanley Henning, an independent scholar, has studied the history of martial arts for many years, both in the United States and in China. Henning will discuss Chinese martial arts, a major element of Chinese traditional physical culture over the centuries, to present day. Chinese martial arts have served as a source for the modern martial sports of Japanese Judo and Karate, and Korean Taekwondo. This one-hour program is suitable for ages 16 to adults.
