Byron Jacobs is a South African who moved to Beijing to study with his Xingyi teacher, Master Di Guoyong. The interview I did with him for my Internal Fighting Arts podcast should inspire any martial artist.
Besides studying Xingyi simply for the art, Byron also works for the International Wushu Federation.
We talk about how he got into martial arts, the culture shock of moving to Beijing, what it's like to train with his teacher, and some of the finer points of Xingyiquan (also spelled Hsing-I Chuan).
Listen online or download the mp3 file through this link to the Internal Fighting Arts podcast on Audello.
It will also be available on iTunes.
