Chinese Novels Martial Arts Heroes Brought to the Western World

Picture provided by Justine Wang
Part of my task in addtion to passing the Eastern martial arts to the Western world. I also wish to pass a lot of the history and culture as well. A big part of any culture can be found from their entertainment. In fact you will find that most people in China have vast amount of martial arts knowledge even if they don't do martial arts themselves. Much of this comes from their stories and novels. Even though these are just fantasy novels, the details pertaining real martial arts is staggering. I plan to take the first chapter of many of these novels and translate them in order to draw the different authors attention to the possibility of marketing to the Western world. Crouching tiger hidden dragon was just one story of thousands that are out there. This one is called the 8 parts of the Heaven dragon. Its just a rough draft but I think you'll get the point. Its time for a brand new fantasy genre to be brought to life. Click on my other blog
