About the Author
Martial artist, dancer and historian, Scott Park Phillips lives in Boulder, Colorado, where he integrates traditional Chinese martial arts with Daoist studies, and improvisational theater. He has been teaching children and adults since 1992. When not writing or making videos, he has been promoting the use of historic dance games in the teaching of modern self-defense. He is also the author of the popular martial arts blog Weakness with a Twist.
