Dr. Budris began his training in the Wutan lineage several months after Liu Yun Qiao's only visit to Los Angeles in 1984. Throughout his college years at UC Riverside and post graduate years, he intensively trained with Master Jason Tsou in Tanglang, Shuai Jiao, Bajiquan, Piquazhang, Baguazhang and a variety of weapons including Miao Dao (two handed saber), Jian (straight sword), Long Staff (Kun) and Long Spear (Da Qiang). During this time, he had the good fortune to meet and train with Master Adam Hsu, Master Su Yu Chang and Master Xie Pei Qi (Baguazhang). He attended medical school at New York Medical College and completed an anesthesiology residency at UCLA. He spent 20 years as a practicing anesthesiologist in Los Angeles. Throughout more than three decades, he continued his practice of traditional Chinese martial arts and his association with Master Tsou. He has been active in promoting weapons and bare hand sparring between other martial arts styles. During his Hawaii years, he was able to train with the competitors in the early UFC and Extreme Battlecage tournaments. In 1996, He visited Beijing to explore the traditional Chinese martial arts heritage. He remains focused on the teaching, preservation and practical applications of Bajiquan and Piquazhang. He continues to advocate for sword (Jian) weapon sparring and the preservation of the Baji jian based on Li Shu Wen's modifications of the Kun Wu Jian. He primarily resides in Los Angeles and remains one of Master Tsou's most senior and active students. He frequently posts new content to his instagram page (@bastard_son_of_li_shu_wen).
