Master Hui has been practising martial arts since childhood. Along with a master degree in Science, he has practised Karate, Judo, Li Fut, Wing Chun and Qigong. During the past twenty years he has devoted himself to the research of traditional Chinese internal martial arts. He also has great interest in the functions of martial art regarding the exercising of the body and keeping practitioners healthy. He has tried to study and analyse the internal strength of internal martial arts and its secrets from the perspectives of sport and scientific theories. He has learned several kinds of martial arts from many teachers, for example Xing Yi Chuan, Ba Gua, Tai Chi and Lui He Ba Fa and Yi Chan. He was formally accepted as a disciple by three masters and has gained a vast amount of experience and knowledge over almost fifty years.
