Grandmaster Douglas Wong started his Martial Arts career in the 1950's and continues to this day. If you haven't looked at
his historical photos on his facebook page I strongly suggest that you do. For some it will be a trip down memory lane. For others it will be a lesson in the history of the arts in and around Los Angeles (not to mention some great behind the scenes photos from various film sets).
Enjoy my discussion with GM Wong. I know I did.
