Welcome to

the Inaugural

Edition of…

TAO Magazine!

Tao Magazine is a platform to

launch your Martial Arts or related

Lifestyle Business. We

make no apologies of building

the TAO concept at a low cost

so that it can be seen and

used by as many people as

possible. The use of Facebook

and the wix Web Site

will enable us to offer the best

possible rates for advertisers

and to get their message out

their to our readers.

Its been a crazy, roller-coaster

ride for everyone involved but

I’m pleased to say we made it

in the end! And before we

even begin to introduce you to

our New Magazine it’s time to

say a huge thank you to all

the TAO Team who have

burnt the mid-night oil to produce

this Special Edition. The

magazine as been put together

by Martial Arts enthusiasts

Peter Love from TAO Magazine

gives an insight of what we aim to

achieve in the years ahead.

both in the UK and here in

Australia.

First and foremost we live the

Martial Way. Which is why we

decided to use the name

TAO. It’s our Lifestyle it’s our

Art and it’s in our blood!

This is the message we want

to get out there! Which is why

we have added the name

“Lifestyle” so that we can

demonstrate that Martial Arts

and Lifestyle are the same.

We hope to feature many

ways in which people can live a healthy lifestyle

through the Martial Arts and other related practices

such as Tai Chi, Yoga etc.

Not just promoting a healthy lifestyle but that of

“Respect to Everyone and Everything.”

Masters from around the World! Plus we will be

introducing you to many new faces who will

give you their own views and thoughts on their

personal journey in the martial arts. I don’t want

to single out anyone person and thank them all

for their written articles.

Todays World is filled with hate and violence

and within the Martial Arts World in general this

does not exist. I’ve personally trained with people

from all walks of life and religion, place of

birth, colour or gender have not come into

question. Todays Martial Artist (Instructor &

Student) can play a huge part in the future of

our young ones and help create a better society

for everyone to live in!

In forthcoming editions we look forward to sharing

with you the many various arts from all over

the World.

It’s been an amazing response and initial reaction

from Masters who want the “real” art to remain

alive and their in put to this issue and future

editions are most welcome and we thank

you for sharing your art with us.

We continue to strive to be the best and continue

to learn and develop what we do and so I

say for myself that I am no expert and continue

to strive for perfection knowing that I can always

do better.

Producing this International Edition is no different

and I’m sure we will learn more as we continue

to produce more over time.

So what do we have in store for you? Well, we

have Interviews, Biography’s and photo’s of the

The response from the Master’s of White Crane

have been huge and I make no apologies for

covering many of them in this issue. The original

teachings are important and should not be

forgotten. I would like to point out that we have

freely offered interviews and articles from everyone

in the martial arts industry but the main

response as been from the Chinese sector.

Hopefully as we reach out to more people we

will start to cover other styles too.

TAO

CLUB FOCUS.”

Our future and main aim is to

focus on YOU and your CLUB. The grass-roots

and for many their first step on the ladder of

learning the art. We therefore ask you to send

in your News and Photo’s and we will let the

World know what you are doing either in future

editions or on our Web site.

That will become our main point of contact with

you all in the coming months. A place for us to

share the information we gather from you.

Once we feel we have something special we

will either share it on-line or from time to time

produce special editions of TAO Magazine for

you to download

Is a section for news updates on our Web site

where we will continue to release all the exciting

news that we receive.

be a small charge for this but rest assured we

aim to offer the best rates available. Contact us

to discuss any advertising either on the Web

site or in future magazines.

So, the future is here with TAO Martial Arts &

Lifestyle and from the moment we announced

our plans we were greeted by support from the

major groups in Australia and from other Countries

too.

We have built contacts around the World and

hope to share their knowledge and experience

with you over time. So that you can continue to

develop your Martial skills, improve your Lifestyle

or simply help to put you in touch with

suppliers and service providers to the industry

to help make running your own school simpler.

Why is the martial arts community joining with

us? From the initial feedback we are getting its

because we aim to serve the community not

just with a honest and trustworthy magazine but

because of our promise to promote the art in as

many ways as possible.

Introducing -

Ron Goninan

Editor.

So why add yet ‘another Martial Arts Magazine’ into

the mix? Well we at “Tao Martial Arts & Lifestyle”

see what we offer as less a “Magazine” and more of

a service towards the Martial Arts and by Martial

Arts we mean Martial with an emphases on

“ARTS!” … and not just Martial Arts but the very

important Holistic Arts such as Yoga, Acupuncture/

Acupressure,

Massage therapies, Reiki,

Seichim, Shiatsu, Tui-na, Sound Healing, Energy

Healing … in fact anything that has a natural

benefit to us in everyday life and living!

With the recent death of the UK’s “Martial Arts Illustrated”

Magazine and the demise of “Blitz Publications”

and its Multi-Media Group which went into

liquidation on the 1st of March 2018 as reported by

the Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

there is no doubt that the Print Media for Martial

Arts is on the decline.

Other Martial Arts Magazines are also doing it tough

with “Kungfu Tai Chi Magazine” moving to being

published quarterly also due to the dwindling of the

Martial Arts Print Media at the news-stands.

We aim to service, promote, propagate and promote

the Martial Arts / Holistic Arts on all levels

making us less of a “Magazine” and more of a way

forward for those who hold these arts near and dear

to their collective hearts and minds!

This, the 1st issue is free to give you a “feel” for the

type of service we aim to offer.

As it stands, we are the only Martial Arts Magazine

operating in Australia at this current time and we

hope that with your on-going help, support and contributions,

that we can expand this very special service

to a wider worldwide audience.

We seek to bring back a real sense of balance, of

Tao (the Way) to the wider Martial Arts & Lifestyle

World.

In this issue you will read about Martial Arts & Lifestyle

Pioneers.

We also aim at providing you with a great variety

and viewpoint of the Martial Arts World by not continually

re-hashing the same people over and over

each issue as some of our forbearers have done ad

nauseam. Nor will we make this a “puff-piece” fea-

6


turing the latest “Martial Arts Movie Stars”. No, this is a magazine

for the Martial Arts & positive Lifestyle Choices.

We want to feature those great Martial Artists you have never

heard of! The people who have given their lives to the arts yet

never sought out the grace of featuring in a Martial Arts Publication.

Those who quietly dedicate themselves to teaching the

essence of the Martial Arts and Lifestyle directions.

To do this we need to hear from YOU! We invite you to contribute

towards this magazine via submitting articles and news

pieces on your school!

For those seeking to advertise their schools, then we seek to

offer you real and affordable rates that you can afford and not

just those “Big End of Town” Groups. Contact us to see what

we can do and how we can work with you to get you message

across.

So here we are …Welcome to Tao Martial Arts & Lifestyle …

Make of it what you will … Your Martial Arts and Lifestyle

Magazine!

刀 Chinese Broadsword:

Dao (dāo) are single-edged Chinese swords, primarily used for slashing and chopping. The most

common form is also known as the Chinese sabre, although those with wider blades are

sometimes referred to as Chinese broadswords. In China, the dao is considered one of the four

traditional weapons, along with the gun (stick or staff), qiang (spear), and the jian (double-edged

sword).

This Dao belongs to Ron Goninan ~ Shifu and has been verified as being from the Qing Dynasty

- 1636 and ruling China from 1644 to 1912.

It would not be fair if we published this magazine

without a photo or comment of the most famous

of Martial Artists - Bruce Lee!.

Bruce was and still is an inspiration to many and

the reason that so many people took up the martial

arts in the early seventies.

From KFM “Kung Fu Monthly” to Collectors Souvenir

books and magazines all packed with photos

and articles on the “little dragon himself.”

Bruce was in the daily papers on a regular basis.

Some fact and some fiction but whatever it was

millions of fans around the World wanted to know

all about Hong Kong’s most famous martial artist!

I was just approaching my own teen years and a

few years into my martial arts training when

Bruce’s Films hit the cinemas and the rest we already

know!

Bruce I guess was somewhat controversial in his

thinking and we will no doubt be the same here at

Tao Magazine.

So here we are, a few photos and quotes sent to

me through the Bruce Lee site earlier this year.
