Rebuilding the North Shaolin Monastery – 2010 to 2020
This book is a collection of a series of articles first published in Kung Fu Tai Chi Magazine 2010 to 2020 that follows the 10-year reconstruction process of the venerable North Shaolin Monastery on Pan Mountain (“Panshan”) near Po Hai Bay connecting to the Yellow and East Seas. This monastery is not to be confused with the headquarter Songshan Shaolin in Henan closer to central China. The North Shaolin Monastery joined the Shaolin family at the beginning of the Yuan Dynasty under the direction of Xueting Fuyu, 1203–1275 an abbot of the Shaolin Monastery of the Caodong lineage. Antecedent histories prior to its destruction in 1942, views into the philosophies and daily practices of the monks, memories and legends shared by villagers on Panshan, as well as some possible futures are presented in clear detail. This book also contains many large photos that help bring to life the 10-year reincarnation process and unique history and character of the mountain in vivid color. The Epilogue illuminates remarkable similarities between the great religions and philosophies of the world and emphasizes there has never in history been a greater need for peace and cooperation than at this present time.

This Silk Road martial art book reaches back 5,000 years and inter-plays that passion and drama with the best of human qualities today.
A text for learning the basic vocabulary and beginning training techniques of Kumdo
KUMDO-韩国剑术 – 用于学习 – 基本词汇和入门训练技巧的文本
Kumdo is the Korean version of Japanese Kendo; it is different and the same. Just as Japanese Karate is an extension of Chinese Shaolin Kung Fu, so too Kumdo is a related to Kendo. © 2018 by Gregory Brundage and Ahn Jeong Huan (안정완)
本书Kumdo是日文剑道的朝鲜语版本； 它是不同的，相同的。 正如日本的空手道是中国少林功夫的延伸一样，金道也与剑道有关。
The Universality of Meditation and Enlightenment
Breath and reconnecting with everything 呼吸，重新连接一切
Before reading this article please relax. Take a deep breath. Take another deep breath. Awareness of one’s own breathing connects body/mind/spirit naturally. It’s the key to meditation. Is the body/mind/spirit three things or one? Originally one, but our analytic thinking brain chops it into three. Meditation is like a doorway back to our Originally One state. Just the word “Breathe” can be our “key,” – a conditioned response bringing us back to our real humanity and health. So, throughout this article I will repeat and repeat: “breathe.” It’s a wonderful habit to develop whatever we are doing.
This article reviews scientific research on meditation, prayer and breath on the immune system and general health.本书回顾了有关冥想，祈祷和呼吸对免疫系统和整体健康的科学研究。
Scientific Research on Chinese Herbal Medicines for Treatment of COVID-19
Very brief review of some a tiny fraction of the scientific research on China’s herbal medical treatment for COVID-19. These traditional medicines were/are often (but not always) used in combination with more standard western medicines. Chinese medicines are usually more slowly acting, but have less side effects than western medicines. Considering the relative success of China’s response to COVID-19, these traditional treatment systems appear to have been effective in most cases. (12 pages)
本书非常简短地回顾了中国针对COVID-19的中草药治疗的一小部分科学研究。 这些传统药物经常（但不总是）与更标准的西药结合使用。 中药通常起效较慢，但副作用少于西药。 考虑到中国应对COVID-19的相对成功，这些传统治疗系统似乎在大多数情况下都是有效的。 （12页）
