Meet the author

I’m Tom Bisio, the author of the Tooth From the Tiger’s Mouth: Gong Fu Sports Medicine Distance Learning Program. In designing this program I have drawn on my experiences of teaching martial arts for more than 40 years, and over 25 years experience as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine. In the course of preparing this program, I made numerous trips to China to study with masters of the internal arts and Chinese medicine, and wrote a number of books on internal martial arts. The knowledge and insights gained during those trips, as well as my experiences teaching martial arts and Chinese medicine in the United States and abroad have influenced this program which I am excited to offer you.
