Fang, who moved to Australia in the 1980s, holds a bachelor’s degree and a doctor's degree in acupuncture from Fujian University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and a master’s degree in herbology from the University of Sydney, and is a visiting professor at the Department of Acupuncture and Massage under the Shaanxi University of Chinese medicine.

In addition, he is a seven-grade martial artist, also known as a dragon-level warrior, and is a 31st -generation student at the Shaolin Temple in Songshan Mountain under the religious name Shi Defeng.

One of his disciples has opened seven martial arts clubs in Australia, which have attracted more than 1,000 students. The disciple won a championship in a fighting competition attended by more than 50 martial arts clubs across Australia in 2006. Fang and the disciple put on an excellent kung fu performance at the ceremony.

Before the evening party, Fang had received a letter from the Chinese Medicine Registration Board of Australia on June 1 which unconditionally approved Fang’s qualification of traditional Chinese medicine. In accordance with regulations of the CMR Board, all Chinese medicine Industries in Australia shall register before June 30 this year and wait for assessment and approval. The CMR Board’s earlier and unconditional approval undoubtedly fully confirmed Fang’s traditional Chinese medicine and medical skills.

Fang said emotionally, “Carrying the essence of Chinese culture which boasts a history of several thousand years, traditional Chinese medicine culture is broad and profound. Traditional Chinese medicine has a special curative effect on diagnosing and treating various illnesses and the key point is how to develop and use it.”

He said that he will take it his responsibility to make the Westerners to recognize, accept and respect traditional Chinese medicine and he will make unremitting endeavours to foster and enhance Chinese culture.
