Born in Genoa in 1960, Paolo Cangelosi began to practice Ju Jitsu at the age of eight. Soon after, he encountered Master Fu Han Tong, a charismatic Kung Fu master trained and taught alone, in a shed in the center of Genoa. Cangelosi's development from student to master is a story of dedication, detachment, and a personal journey that takes from from Italy to China, Hong Kong, and Thailand, and on to international recognition as one of the leading practitioners of these ancient arts.
Cangelosi's peregrinations and adventures form a gripping spiritual and physical quest full of strife, beauty, encounters with extraordinary people, and noble healers.
In this passionately told biography, one of Cangelosi's followers and alumni, Nathalie Tocci, tells her own and Paolo Cangelosi's stories.
