From 1983-1986, some 8,000 researchers travelled to the remotest corners of vast China and called on 15,000 old martial art masters. The project had no parallel in the history of China's sports.

It was on the basis of these extensive investigations that an encyclopaedia of some 130 schools of Chinese martial arts was compiled and an archive of over 400 hours of videotape were collected.

A historical treasure of tradtional Chinese kungfu since 1771. In this Volume: Origins, history, and practices of Tai Chi (Chen and Yang), Plum Blossom Boxing, Zi Ran Men the Natural Boxing, Dacheng Boxing, Ba Gua Eight Diagrams Boxing, and more.
