Describing 45 years of martial arts experience and the influences that helped shape him, Kung-Fu Grandmaster Allen J. Chinn tells his story. In a time when little was known about the secret art of Kung-Fu, an eight year old searched to find life's lessons in the Chinese martial arts. This book gives insight into his experiences as a martial artist, but also describes what it was like growing up as an Asian American in South Seattle's Beacon Hill. His life experiences and personal thoughts provide the reader an understanding of what makes a 21st century Kung-Fu Grandmaster. Finally, this book demonstrates that if you desire something enough, you can achieve it. The seemingly impossible can become possible.
