Our Technical Services grew out of the things we were doing. We started the Wudang Research Association in 1996 to translate and publish books. Born online (seriously), our first publication was our web site, in English and Chinese in 1996. We’ve published a few more things since then.
Our most recent publication is Weaving the Threadstm Practice and Philosophy in the Internal Arts. The current issue is available on the Print menu and the sidebar.
We were born on the web. Literally. Filed the paperwork through Compuserv back in the day. Our first publication was our web site… this one. Multiple updates, multiple changes in standards and methods, and 25 years later, we’re still here. We’d be happy to help you do the same.
