    One thought on “The Making of a Butterfly: Traditional Chinese Martial Arts As Taught by Master W. C. Chen”

    1. Pretty good. It's a story image heard a hundred times, well enough told. Chi, lessons from a master, struggle. My favorites in the genre are Way of the Heavenly Dragon and Iron & Silk, whichninc,IDE a little more of the whole person in the story, not just the teacher and student.

    2. Excellent book, a good account of a young student training under a traditional teacher. It's in a similar vein to Autumn Lightning.
