For decades, Buddha Zhen has been saying to his students and friends, "I want to make a movie about Kung Fu that will inspire Americans to understand Chinese martial arts... and to pursue those heroic values in their own lives." This may be the story he was waiting for -- written after accidentally stumbling onto the secrets of Freemasonry, cleverly encoded in a popular Kung Fu form, "Lian Bu," or "Ling Po," taught to him by two famous Chinese Kung Fu masters, Dr. Kam Yuen of the Tai Mantis Federation and Grandmaster Wong Jack Man of the Jing Mo Association.
Richard researched the history of this Kung Fu Form and discovered it was created by a Chinese martial artist who added it to the Chinese government Jing Mo school in 1938, as the Japanese were invading China. Richard will continue to research this Kung Fu and has been assured the assistance of the Chinese Free & Accepted Masons.
Impatient for enough research to write the true story of this Masonic Kung Fu, Richard Del Connor decided to write this novel during his research of the British Freemasons, probably responsible for transmitting these "Masonic Secrets" to a Chinese Kung Fu master. In 1938, Chinese were not allowed to submit applications to become Freemasons.
So here it is: Chinese teenage heroes, a British Freemason, and an invading army of Japanese infantry. Based upon true incidents and the Masonic Kung Fu dance discovered by Richard Del Connor on June 9, 2009 after he became a 3rd Degree Master Mason.
All 3 Masonic Kung Fu books take place in China:
BOOK 1: 1937-1938 The Japanese Invasion
BOOK 2: 1938-1940 The Jing Mo school
BOOK 3: 1941-1942 The Shaolin Master
