The fictions of Arthur Cravan: Poetry, boxing and revolution

The legendary poet and boxer Arthur Cravan, a fleeting figure on the periphery of early twentieth-century European avant-gardism, is frequently invoked as proto-Dada and Surrealist exemplar.

American Realism (Temporis Collection)

Urban realism, snow-covered streets of New York, boxing matches, children on the banks of a river, the painters of the Ash Can School preferred realistic images.

Tai Chi Chuan Yang Style Boxing Strategies

We have to ask ourselves what is hidden beyond the Yang family (Tai Chi Chuan) manuscripts of Li Ying-ang, the nine secret transmissions of Wu Meng-hsia, and the manuscripts of Shen Chia-chen? In my humble opinion, the deepest sourced revelations are revealed in Cheng’fu’s, 'Self Defense Applications of Tai Chi Chuan,' and Wu Meng-hsia’s 'Nine Secret Transmissions of Tai Chi Chuan.'
