In ancient China, martial arts and medicine developed hand in hand for many years. Monks studying martial arts for self-defence developed their medical knowledge while treating injuries received during practice and in dealings with the communities around them. The Chinese medical practitioners of the time were required to know martial arts to understand the effects of injury and how to treat them; they were often required to treat their own injuries and those of their students.
This symbiotic relationship not only helps explain the interwoven histories of Chinese martial arts and medicine, but also why a master of one discipline was usually very knowledgeable of the other.
Grandmaster Pier Tsui-Po, like his forebears, is a master of both Chinese martial arts and traditional Chinese medicine. Having inherited many secret martial arts techniques, healing techniques and studying extensively with many Chinese martial arts masters and Chinese medical professors, he answers the questions that others cannot answer.
