    Yeah, that explains the Eunuch thing pretty well. I didn't even think about them trying to take control. Thanks.

    I figured that the principles of Tai Chi were going on. An Qi Gong too. I was reading some stuff that was talking about Qi Gong being swapped back and forth with Indian monks, but that was way later than this stuff going on. But I'll wait for further articles for more questions on this. Thanks again!

    I would like to apologize for the rather lengthy delay. This is an update to give you some idea of where I stand in terms of the next writeup.

    Unfortunately, I have not been able to get my hands on the translations I was looking for, and will have to make due witout them. It is rather unfortunate, and will definitely lessen the impact of what I am trying to show, but there it is. Maybe at a later point when I do get what I need, I will simply append this section.

    Due to an upcoming move, I will be unable to complete my next writeup until sometime end of July-early August. Afterwards, it is my goal to update this section on an almost weekly basis if time allows.

    Once again, my apologies for this delay. Rest assured that I am still reading up on required material.

    Regretfully, I must append my previous post. Rest assured, I have not been slacking.

    Due to some unfortunate events (which include my PC frying post-move, me no longer being able to access my files, ) some rather urgent health issues that I need to attend to, and my inability to obtain tanscribed copies of a number of the original Chinese texts (I tried contacting a number of acquaintances in Beijing, as well as a poster on this message board, all with no luck,) it looks like there may be even more delays than anticipated.

    I may have to start various parts of this project over from scratch, which in itself is a mixed blessing, since it will allow me to mentally recap some of the more crucial information, and expand on material where needed.

    For now I may have to skip over my original indended segment, where I aimed to present some of the original accounts of Zhang San Feng in English and Chinese. Unfortunately, the reader will have to settle for a brief description of the authors of these accounts, their backgrounds, and possible motivations.

    This is already in the works, and hopefully be up within the week. Unfortunately, that's all I am able to do for now. And again, if someone does have access to academic resources in the PRC, I am more than willing to fund a translation. Please PM me if you can offer this service.

    Hey Sri, posted around here of my plans to go to PRC at the end of the semester, so far still looking good just need to get my passport and plane ticket, so unless something changes I'd be willing to look up the sources you need when I get there, as I'll be in Beijing taking classes for back home credit

    Much appreciatings. Are you able to read classical Chinese? A number of texts I have in mind are either sections from the Taoist Canon, or Ming-Qing Dynasty historical records, so they might be somewhat difficult from a scholarly perspective.

    If you can, let me know how much funding you will need, and I will see what I can procure. Plenty of kids with lunch money in these parts.

    Much appreciated. If you get a chance, I'd love to get my hands on a number of texts. Worst case scenario, I can probably have them translated within the States. If you are in an academic environment, it might be somewhat easier for you to get your hands on a copy.

    When you get a chance, please let me know which university you will be staying at, and I'll forward you a small list. When you get that, let me know what the financial requirements are, and hopefully we can get our hands on a transcription or two.

    Ok, comrade Metsudragon, I finally got my hands on the proper hanzi.
    If at all possible, (and I realize some of these may not be...) I'd like to get my grubby little paws on:

    Tang Hao's (唐豪)
    -A Study of Shaolin and Wudang -Shaolin Wudang Kao (少林武當考)
    -A Study of ‘Secrets of Shaolin Boxing’ -Shaolin quanshu mijue kaozheng (少林拳术秘诀考证)
    --Taijiquan yanjiu (太極拳研究)

    I am also interested in the works of Hsi Zhi Dong and Xu Zhen. Also of interest would be the works of Matsuda Ryuchi, and Kang Ge Wu, who did an extensive research into the background of Baguazhang. I know we had some people curious about that.
