  1. I am looking for someone who teaches from the lineage of Professor Cheng Man-Ching. I studied for years with Tom Wang here in Nashville TN, but he has moved to Michigan some years ago. Your help will be appreciated. Thank You. Randall

    • Try Smith Park in San Gabriel on Broadway, Saturdays 9am – Noon. Mr. Chen will not be there on the 20th, but Fred Hao, visiting from Taiwan, will be there. Master Hao will also be at Rosemead Park on Wed. and Fri. mornings from about 7:30 – 9:30 (time not exact).

  2. Is Master Hao still going to Rosemead Park these days? Thank you very much!
