Praise for
Fundamentals of High Performance Wushu: Taolu Jumps and Spins

"I have been training in the martial arts for over 45 years and your book is a breath of fresh air...Your knowledge and explanations of biomechanics and their application to wushu is terrific. My sons are active wushu and fighting competitors. Your book has enabled me to better coach them when they are not at the wushu schools they attend."                                                                Neil - United States

"120% satisfied with the book...This book has become my personal bible!!"             Dave - California

"Very good book ... You should be happy to hear that in one session, I went from a 360
standing outside to a 540 =)"                                                                          
Steve - United States

"I got my copy in this weekend and I'm VERY pleased with this book. It gives you step by step details with understandable illustrations. It also gives good training exercises, along with common errors and how to correct them. I like the fact that it stresses even though this is a book for achieving better nan du movements, he still stresses basics. I give it a 5 of 5."                         WhiteDragon - Jiayo.com

Reviews for Fundamentals of High Performance Wushu:
Taolu Jumps and Spins

"Fundamentals of High Performance Wushu is quite possibly one of the easiest ways to learn or to improve upon your Taolu jumps and spins...Not only does this book explain how to execute each jump in great, step-by-step detail, but it also identifies common mistakes one might make while practicing...The style of writing is subtly humorous and easy to understand. Even if you aren’t a martial artist, any athlete should read Fundamentals of High Performance Wushu to improve their 'game' "       Taylor - Chicago

OMFG I just got this book and I have to say, I am very impressed!! I just read the first 20 pages and OMFG it's great!! Great details and good pictures. Must get another one now..."

"5/5. Just spent the past hour skimming through it. Analyzes the steps from start to finish of pretty much all Changquan difficulties with a good emphasis on physics and body mechanics. Gives a great list of common errors, along with exercises to do to achieve each movement. It's the first wushu book that I can read..."                                                                                              izrofel - Jiayo.com
