Alan Lee is a grandmaster of both the northern and southern Sholín styles. He started his training in the martial arts at the age of seven under the tutelage of his father, Lee Ti?n Táng, a renowned master of the Southern Stone Fist style. Mr. Lee subsequently went to Beijing and studied under Grandmaster Jì Y? J?n, a well-known and respected teacher of the northern w?shù styles. These became Grandmaster Lee's favored systems. After leaving Beijing, Mr. Lee traversed the entire Chinese countryside three times, studying with over 26 different teachers. This was faciltiated by the the prominence of Mr. Lee's family. His uncle, Lee Z?ng Rén (Lee Tsung-jen), also a Southern style master and one of Mr. Lee's early instructors, was a famous general who won the first modern military victory against the Japanese at the Battle of Táiérzhu?ng. Since his arrival in the United States, Grandmaster Lee and his students have given innumerable exhibitions for the public, notably in such educational institutions as Columbia University, parks such as the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and various television shows including 'The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson', 'The Merv Griffin Show', 'The Mike Douglas Show', 'The Joe Franklin Show' and 'Like It Is'. Grandmaster Lee was the chairman of the Second International Convention of Martial Arts held at the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City. This convention was sponsored by Black Belt Magazine and hosted delegates representing the Chinese martial arts, aikido, judo, jujitsu and karate from all over the world. Professionally, Grandmaster Lee has earned two degrees in engineering. Until his retirement, Mr. Lee worked as a senior electronics engineer with several prominent communications and engineering companies. This work included the development of communications systems for the InterStat #1 (Early Bird) satellite and development of the Telex communication system. Later, Mr. Lee began his own businesses in the areas of engineering consultation, general consulting, import and export and real estate. He also owns many patents, copyrights and trademarks. Grandmaster Lee remains very active in the temple and teaches his degree holders on a regular basis. He is currently involved in providing a longevity training program for both his students and the general public. Through the application of d?oy?nbìjí, Grandmaster Lee devotes his time to helping those most in need of these unique, life-enriching programs which are part of fundamental kungfu training.
