American teachers who have lived and trained in Taiwan? where are they now?

Post  Matt_Stampe on Wed Nov 23, 2011 1:18 pm

In my journey of martial arts I have met some amazing martial artists who have lived and trained in Taiwan. I've read some articles from old Inside Kung Fu from a few of the following people as well. I wanted to see if a list can be created on who has lived in and trained in Taiwan, what learned, where they are now.

Off the top I can think of the follow masters in no particular order:

Robert W. Smith- recently passed: did Tai Chi, Bagua and Xingyi but was retired. Cheng man Ching student.
Dr. Ken Fish- Hsingyi student of Zhang Junfeng in Gaithersburg Maryland.
Allan Pittman- Neijia, I think he is in Georgia somewhere.
Mike Patterson- Neijia in Las Vegas. ( a member of our forum) student Hsu Hong Ji.
Dr. Vince Black- Neijia in Arizona I believe also a student of Hung Yi Hsiang.
Tim Cartmell- Neijia student of Luo De Xiu in L.A. area of Cali.
James McNeil- in California I believe.
George Wood- Neijia in Virginia- student of Luo De Xiu.
Tim Tackett- Hsingyi, now a JKD guy.

Taiwan group?
Tom Bisio
John Bracy
Jerry Alan Johnson
Kumar Frantiz

Dr. Black was actually a student of Hsu Hong Ji. Tom Bisio trained with Hsu Hong Ji also while in Taiwan. John Price started training with Hung Yi-Hsiang then continued with Hsu Hong Ji. Tim Tackett train with Chen Mei Shou and Yuan Tao.

I think that Tim Cartmell also trained with some other well known masters, but they may have been from mainland.
Another name to add to the list would be Marcus Brinkman. He studied Xingyi with Hong Yi Xiang for quite a while and that is where he connected with Luo Dexiu. Marcus lives in Taiwan now.
