Some readers might notice a tab with the name Tong Lian Bookshop. This is a page that is dedicated to what I would regard as a long time icon on the Singapore martial arts scene.
The rise of the internet and a decline in readers has impacted the business of Tong Lian and I fear that it may one day become but a memory.
I am not trying to write a history on Tong Lian and its founder Mr Loh. However, if I can gather enough information I will add on to the page.
I don’t know about others but I personally owe the late Mr Loh a debt of gratitude because he was the one who introduced me to learn Dong style Taijiquan. Even though he was a capable and recognized Dong style teacher he recommended me to learn from the disciple of Tung Hulin instead and for giving me that start I am forever in his debt.
So if any readers have any information, anecdote, story or a photo to share of Tong Lian please email me.
