The second youngest child of grandmaster Chen Pan Ling, master Chen Yun Ching’s mission in life is to pass down his father’s system of martial and healing arts as accurately and consistently as possible. This sacred system, which has only been taught publicly for less than two decades, was passed from father to son to preserve authenticity. Now master Chen Yun Ching has opened the Chen Pan Ling Foundation which has allowed him to teach his father’s art to students from all over the world.
