Farewell to another Mantis pioneer
Ma Lei was a warrior through and through. Studying Mantis under his father the great Ma Han Qin, Lei spent his later years developing, analyzing, and teaching San Da at various clubs and locations around Beijing. From what I hear his fighting skills were top notch, his spirit strong. Everyone from my teacher Hu Xi Lin, to Ma Leis brothers, and students sang praises for the man. He spent many years teaching the Chinese police and special enforcement units (equivalent to our FBI). To his students and friends worldwide, we at Three Harmonies would like to offer our condolences.
Rest in Peace,
