Robert Twigger, author of 'Angry White Pyjamas'
Initiated into kung fu by an opium-addicted master, Sugong is expelled from school, kidnapped, and nearly killed in a family feud. All by the age of sixteen.
He flees army conscription in China, only to be engulfed in a world of gangsters and blood-brothers in Singapore. Saved by a Shaolin warrior monk, his penance is eight years of fiercely-enforced temple training.
A near-fatal fall-out with his master, love affairs, race riots and gangland vendettas all follow as he journeys South-East Asia. Throughout, he struggles to adhere to martial arts ethics in an imperfect world.
Nick Hurst was working in London when he threw in his job in advertising to train for four years in Malaysia and China with his kung fu grandmaster, Sugong. This book is a mix of Nick’s experiences in South-East Asia and the story of Sugong’s extraordinary life.
