“As to just how “full contact” this Full Contact tournament was, that question was answered by the very first pool match when a Dutch contestant, Henk Jensen met British player, Paul Andrews. After a minute of furious play, Andrews landed a downward cut to Jensen’s head, stunning and knocking him down.”

“Paul's Xing Yi is the most authentic I have found, his depth and breadth of knowledge of Xing Yi as a martial art is vast and extends to the spiritual side of Xing Yi and it's connection to the natural world”

– Gurm Baccus

“For many years I studied under the same teachers as Paul Andrews, and within the same association. Paul Andrews took it much further than me, showing immense dedication, diligence, determination and flair, and becoming an exceptional instructor.”

– Dr Paul Bowman, Cardiff University UK: Academic research of martial arts and cultural studies, author of “Martial Arts Studies”, practitioner of Taijiquan, Choy Lee Fut and Escrima

“I've studied internal martial arts since 1996 in Australia, Hong Kong, China and the UK, and have only rarely met people with Paul's thorough understanding of internal principles, mechanics and application, both in empty hand techniques and with weapons.”

– David Leffman, UK: Taijiquan, Baguaquan, Xingyiquan

“Should you chose to study this art I would without hesitation recommend Paul to you as a teacher.”

– Alex Sellars, UK: Xing Yi Instructor, Kickboxing, Kempo
