Tan Jing is a Kung Fu Master who specializes in the studies of ‘Nei Jing’ in Chinese Kung Fu. He was born in 1951 in Xiamen, Fujian, China, and now lives in Hong Kong. He is also a writer, theorist, and experienced instructor of Chinese martial arts .
Compared with famous Kung Fu Masters from modern-day China, Tan Jing is a Kung Fu educator with a low profile. Nonetheless, reports indicate his abilities inner 'Qi' energy abilities.
Tan Jing followed his first Kung Fu teacher, Tan Jiang Lin, in 1963. Tan Jiang Lin was ranked as the Number One Scholar of Marital Arts in the imperial examination during the late Qing Dynasty .
Tan Jing started learning Xingyiquan （形意拳）and Liuhebafa Chuan （六合八法拳）from the renowned Master Zhang Chang Xing in 1981. Master Zhang was the department head of Xingyiquan in the Nanjing Central Guoshu Academy during the 1930s . He was also a Master of Liuhebafa Chuan. Master Zhang was the top disciple of Wang Xiang Zhai and Wu Yi Hui . Master Wang was visited by many Japanese experts during World War II . One such visitor, Kenichi Sawai, became his student and created his own school back in Japan named Taikiken.
In 1985, Tan Jing became a disciple of Zhou Yong Fu who was a Professor of Martial Arts in Shandong Institute of Physical Education and Sports. Professor Zhou is regarded as one of top-ten Martial Arts professors in China, and was highly praised by Premier Zhou En Lai and General He Long since the 1950s. He has achieved the highest honour attainable in China: the Ninth Degree of National WuShu.
Tan Jing followed two Tai Chi Masters named Li Yan Xi (since 1989) as well as Sun De Ming (since 1991) who were successors of Yang Style Tai Chi in Wang Yong Quan's line. Kung Fu professionals who had contact with them commented on their strong and powerful Nei Gong, inner energy.
And since 2005, Tan Jing became the only student of Wang Zhong Ming, the son of Wang Yong Quan.
Tan Jing practices Chinese Kung Fu to such an extent that he has visited hundreds of famous Kung Fu Masters across several provinces in China. He has established his own theoretical system about Chinese Martial Arts . He has published three books about advanced Chinese Kung Fu with detailed descriptions on the studies of Qi.
His publications include:
1. "Quan dao zhong deng xue: Tai ji quan lian yu wu (Practice and Insights on TaiChi) ISBN:962-85546-2-X,
2. "Zuo zhuo shun gui tai ji quan lun ping shuo zhi yi.1, Wang Zong Yue Tai ji quan lun (Commentary on Wang Zong Yue¡¦s Tai Chi Theory)" ISBN 962-85546-3-8),
3. "Quan dao yao lue (Principles of Quan Dao)" ISBN: 962-85546-0-3; 978-962-85546-0-7).
Tan Jing has been invited to be speak at seminars on Qi for students of Master and PhD Courses in GuangZhou Chinese Medical University. He was appointed as the Chief Martial Arts Instructor Consultant of the Hong Kong Police Wu Shu Association .
Further, he has attained the Diploma of Wu Shu Instructor issued by Qing Dao Martial Art Training .
Even though the energy of Qi is a popular concept in Chinese Martial Arts movies, it is rarely observed. It is portrayed in classic Chinese Kung Fu manuals within a Chinese philosophical framework. However, it is still considered foreign to modern science, particularly in medical and life sciences.
The precise nature of Qi requires systematic research and explanation. Tan Jing bridges traditional experience and modern research.
