Ken Gullette talks with Jon Nicklin, who lived several years in Shanghai and became a disciple of Dai Xueqi, who is a master of Song family Xingyiquan living in Shanghai. Jon has a wide range of experience in Chinese martial arts, beginning when he lived in London. He now lives in Hong Kong. Ken and Jon talk about his experience studying with a "traditional" Xingyi teacher, the culture shock of moving to Shanghai, and a series of videos that Jon is helping to develop that will shine a light on different Xingyi styles and teachers in China. Jon describes himself as a "hobbyist," but like all of Ken's guests, he is a dedicated martial artist.
