New Zealand is also called "the land of white clouds" by the world. In there lives a group of descendants of the dragon, who traveled across the ocean with the essence of Chinese culture and took root on this beautiful island. Professor Li Qiangwei in Auckland is the messenger who immigrated to New Zealand in her early years to inherit and promote Chinese medicine and Chinese martial arts culture.


Immigrated to New Zealand for more than 20 years, she has established the New Zealand Chinese Wudang Neijia Kung Fu Association and taught countless students. During these years, she has won the ninth highest rank of World Kung Fu and works as one rank reviewer for World Kung Fu Association. 

Dr. Li started her TCM learning at age 5, following in her father's footsteps, Dr. Li Tong-Sheng, a famous Chinese medicine master. Dr. Li suffered from a serious accident and a severe concussion of a dislocated and fractured spine during a military training. At that time, she fell into a deep coma. Under the careful treatment of her father for three months, Li Qiangwei was awakened. Since then she regained her memory and started to realized the magic of her family's traditional ethnic medicine. She hopes to use this ancestral medicine to help more patients. She recovered from her disability and tenaciously followed her father and practiced martial arts and Chinese medicine. With tenacious belief, Li Qiangwei was admitted to the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine and became an outstanding student.

Painting and calligraphy, martial arts, and aerial yoga are her important activities outside of work and writing. She still maintains her youthful vitality.

She said: "We have witnessed countless miracles of traditional Chinese medicine in our work, and I am the best proof. I hope my team can use Lee's traditional medicine to help more people."
