The Liu Seong Kuntao Broken Mirror System
This book provides an overview of the martial art system derived from Willem Reeders (1917-1990) and his uncle Liu Seong. The hybrid system inherited much from Liu Seong since he was of Chinese royalty and received specialized training while living in China. In addition, Reeders had moved to Indonesia and studied a number of the indigenous silat arts. Alejandro Rooney assembled this book through research and interviews with Grandmaster Reginald McKissick and Master Dexter Parker. The result is a detailed overview that includes the historical background and the theory and practice of Liu Seong's art, reflecting like a "broken mirror" all of the arts embodied in the martial system.
