J. Justin Meehan is an attorney in St. Louis and the senior U.S. disciple of Master Zhang Xue Xin, who lives in San Francisco and is a disciple of the late Grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang. Sifu Justin, as his students call him, began studying Tai Chi Chuan in 1967. He also studied other arts, including Shaolin, Northern and Southern Praying Mantis, Hung Gar and Wing Tsun. In 1981, he met and trained with Feng Zhiqiang in China. Justin was the first person to teach the internal arts in St. Louis. He now teaches the Hunyuan style of Chen Taijiquan and Qigong. This is not as much an interview as it is a conversation between Ken and Justin, two guys who have been in the arts for more than a century between them. Now in his 70s, Justin mainly teaches private classes and workshops. His website is www.stltaiji.com. Ken's website, offering video lessons and live classes, is at www.internalfightingarts.com.
