Welcome to the Silk Road Kung Fu Friendship Tour Internet Site!

网站于 2023 年 06 月 07 日更新

About a week ago I finished a “smashing” interview with Kru Mac, inheritor of an ancient traditional weapons-based martial art here in Northwest Thailand called “Muay Jeung” – a still mostly secret martial art coalesced primarily in the military during the Lanna Kingdom (1296–1317) Period. Muay Jeung however has roots much older and wider in the region and beyond. Super-light sparring with Kru Mac in a ring was huge fun, as was interviewing and videoing his art fascinating. It took me almost a week to produce four videos, Parts 1 and 2 for each of YouTube and TikTok. [I was surprised at the very strict guidelines for use of music on TikTok; it took two entire days and a lot searching and re-compilations to get some music approved! Wow!] The heart of the story however is in the article for www.kungfumagazine.com to be published in the near future (July/Aug/Sept.).

I posted the above videos Parts 1 and 2 featuring Kru Mac’s demonstrations of Muay Jeung on the Thailand page (under 2023), on the Menu above during the past week. Or, someone can find them on my YouTube and TikTok channel lists below.

For other updates, videos & photos, see -> 2023 -> Thailand page on menu above or click here.

Some people might say Taekwondo is not Kung Fu. But, if that person speaks Chinese, they know it is Kung Fu – a highly refined art and discipline. And, naturally, the Silk Road Kung Fu traveler is not prejudiced in any way against any art that promulgates healthy discipline, fitness, self-knowledge, awareness and control.

Below are just a few photos of the Silk Road Kung Fu travelers’ adventures over the past eight years.

To help pay the bills the intrepid Silk Road Nomad, martial (and most other) arts and sciences explorer, Coach Stone, also sometimes tutors exceptional students (only) in the nuances of the fine art of English as a foreign language (EFL) online. (To see the video in China, go to “English” tab on menu above.) So during the past few days, a new group of friends assembled to assist in my ALL NEW experimental film production career! 😉🤣

The visitor to this site might be surprised at some of the people I meet along the ancient roads. Some places and people have not changed that much. Others! Wow! Science fiction cities of the future.

In December 15 2022 the Silk Road Kung Fu Friendship Tour added a new YouTube Channel featuring new Silk Road videos with an ever expanding collection about the Martial arts, Silk Road history & culture in the Chiang Mai area of North Thailand.

After getting a foothold on YouTube it was time to explore the wonderful world of TikTok while getting to know different people and places around town now, and during the past 12,000 years or so.

In the meantime, I self-taught video production skills however will be happy when a real videographer comes along. Exploring new music for those videos is a challenge and fun too. Many thanks to the artists at https://pixabay.com/music/search for use of music and images.


16 Silk Road countries, uncountable kilometers of land travel and 12 thousand years of history so far.

丝绸之路旅行家、作家、武术家和丝绸之路功夫友谊之旅的创始人格雷戈里·布伦戴奇(石龙)于1973年开始学习功夫。 首先,他的文章发表在功夫杂志(在加利福尼亚出版),然后他收集这些文章并出版成书。

Silk Road traveler, writer, martial artist and founder of the Silk Road Martial Art Friendship Tour Gregory Brundage started learning Judo and Taekwondo in 1969, and Kung Fu in 1972. He first moved to southeast Asia in 1992, and started the Silk Road Kung Fu Friendship Tour and Silk Road Taekwondo Quest in 2015 while living in Beijing. First, his articles are published in Kung Fu Magazine (California) and then he collects those articles and publishes them in books. A similar arrangement was made with Taekwondo Times magazine also published in the US and a book emerged as well.


“Kung Fu” refers to a transcendent level of skill development.


It is about building, never destroying.

沿着最古老的文明和贸易途径进行陆路旅行、培训和采访功夫大师:中国、喀布尔、阿富汗、哈萨克斯坦、吉尔吉斯斯坦、乌兹别克斯坦、土库曼斯坦、阿塞拜疆、格鲁吉亚,到土耳其伊斯坦布尔,这片土地的西部终端 丝绸之路。

Land travel, training with and interviewing the Kung Masters along humanities most ancient pathways of civilization and trade: Around China, Kabul, Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, to Istanbul, Turkey, the western terminal of the land Silk Roads.

The journey continues through: Pakistan – Gansu China – Qatar – Addis Ababa, Tigray Ethiopia – Vietnam – Japan – Indonesia – Shanghai, Ningbo, Yuyao China – Thailand and Hong Kong
从 2022 年 11 月 1 日开始,我们将访问泰国的另外两个城市,然后访问另外 9 个国家:柬埔寨、老挝、马来西亚、马尔代夫、蒙古、新加坡、韩国、斯里兰卡和塔吉克斯坦。
Starting sometime soon, we will visit two more cities in Thailand and then 9 more countries: Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Mongolia, Singapore, South Korea, Sri Lanka and Tajikistan.

But, curious minds want to know, WHERE TO NEXT?

Ah, ha! That is being debated in the parietal lobe areas (central in somatosensory processing, navigation, and calculating and processing of numbers) of my and a few friends’ brains.

The answers depend on a branch equation measuring local broadcast media salability of the Silk Road Martial Arts Friendship Tour in the destination country as a newsworthy event. More news to come! (March 19, 2023)

逃离矩阵! 尝试现实生活来改变。

Escape the Matrix!


The Silk Roads are the real thing – the heart of the world and always have been.

一个地方只是一个地方; 是朋友让它变得特别。 下面是丝路功夫记者 G. Brundage(石龙)与越南国家武术队在河内训练总部,2019年6月6日。,2019 年 6 月 6 日。

还有很多! And many more!

All the articles compiled in the above books were first published in www.kungfumagazine.com (California, USA) as part of an ongoing seven year series. Eight years if including the original four Kung Fu in Kabul articles, also published in Kung Fu Magazine, shortly before launching the long journey across all of Asia and so many other land and maritime Silk Road countries. Now, we’re working on Part 41, the 3rd installment of Kung Fu in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

要吸取的教训:沙丘顶部有点滑。 剑、弓、箭和拳可能比踢更好,但最重要的是对人好,所以战斗真的没有必要。 不过,训练必须继续。
A lesson to be learned: It’s a bit slippery there on the top of a sand dune. Swords, bows and arrows and punches might be better than kicks, but best of all is to be nice to people so fighting really isn’t necessary. Still, training must go on.
