Her extensive career in various businesses, mechanics, computer programming, digital graphics/video and writing has enabled her to document and illustrate this book for clarity and interest.  Her primary goal was to ensure that Master Yan’s wonderful lessons and material were comprehensive, informative, enjoyable and helpful to all readers of this book no matter what experiences or level of education they hold.

Today Jude resides in West Palm Beach, Florida with her husband, Cliff, and beloved “zoo.”  In her youth, her own teacher in New York City, Lee Chung Tai-Tsu (Victor), often quelled her impatience and incessant questions by reciting the adage “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.”  So be ready for the remarkable journey this book is eager to take the reader on.
