Product Details

Praise

The Making of a Butterfly is a rich story of old Chinese kung-fu meeting American culture. This book made me long for the old ways of martial arts instruction before McDojos and health clubs dominated the land. I had been waiting for this book for a long time and didn’t even know it. A wonderful book, lovingly written.”
—Kris Wilder, Goju-Ryu karate instructor and author of Lessons from the Dojo Floor and The Way of Kata: A Comprehensive Guide to Deciphering Marital Applications

“Phillip Star is a very personable and knowledgeable sifu in the Chinese martial arts. I endorse his knowledge and teaching, and hope that everyone reads The Making of a Butterfly with an open mind and body.”
—Sifu Harlan Dai Tong Lee, five-time U.S. National AAU Kung-Fu Champion and head instructor of the Gee Yung Fut-Ga Institute in Honolulu, Hawaii
