The Drunken Boxing Podcast #020 - James Carss



My guest today is James Carss. James is currently based in England and has a lifetime of experience in the practice of martial arts. At the age of 12 he began his studies in Wing Chun. He then went on to study the south east Asian martial arts of Muay Thai and Silat while at the same time pursued an amateur boxing career.

He later got involved in classical Chinese internal arts and decided to relocate to Hong Kong in 2005 to pursue his studies of Chinese martial arts. He remained there for the following 11 years and primarily studied Yi Quan under Chan Tak Chuen, who was a disciple of Han Xing Yuen and he later also to study under Hui Kit Wah, who was a disciple of Han Xing Qiao and further studied Yi Quan as well as Liu He Ba Fa Quan and Yang style Taijiquan. In 2016 returned to England where he lives and teaches today.

It's one of the best episodes to date of one of the very best martial arts/culture podcasts online today. Thanks to both gentlemen for sharing a very enjoyable and insightful conversation.

I agree - it's a great talk. I like the fact they're talking about what training martial arts in China is actually like compared to what people think it's like.
I could be wrong.

Very nice interview, thanks for sharing Byron. Had to laugh at the story of being hit in the face by Sham Siu-po, can't blame James for sticking with Chan Tak-chuen (I have met Sham as well, but fortunately he was in a better mood when I saw him).
