As grand-son to the undisputed Tai-chi-chuan master, Yang Luhan, Shifou’s sole ambition has always been to honor his heritage. Having trained all his life in the foothills of the Golden Mountain, it was only a question of time before he actually joined the monastery. Today everyone can benefit from his expertise, including Kinjo, who would do well to rest his old bones from time to time.
