Secrets of the Pelvis for Martial Arts - Link Updates 2014

Secrets of the Pelvis for Martial Arts: A Practical Guide for Improving Your Wujifa, Taiji, Xingyi, Bagua and Everyday Life was originally published as an e-book in March of 2013. In response to requests for a paper copy, I then released a paperback copy of the e-book in December 2013.

In the intervening year and a half since the initial publication, some of the http links "went bad"; clicking the internet link I provided in the e-book resulted in a "Page Not Found" error.

I reviewed and tested all 188 links (by my count) and discovered 21 (or about 11%) that were broken. Of these 21, more than half (11) were on one site alone! (The site was reorganized.) There was only one link that I could not update: China Taijiquan Magazine (中国太极拳). I read that the original magazine was converted to an on-line journal and I was unable to locate the new site for this journal.

So other than this one Chinese link, as of September 10, 2014, all links in the e-book are once again 100% fully operational!

Given the largely positive reviews, constructive criticisms, and the off-line encouragement for an expanded and updated second edition, I am planning on writing a paper-based book to come out a few years from now. For this reason and due to the dynamic nature of the internet, I will not update links in the existing paper version.

However, I will periodically update the links in the e-book and provide page-by-page link update information in this blog for those with the paper version. So here you go: page numbers, article title, original link, updated link:
