I was born and raised in Malaysia.
I travelled here in the 1990's to study and that is when I met Master Waller.
Having spoken with my husband a few times, I was quite surprised just how Asian
Not modern-Asia, but more akin to my grandparents era - or earlier even.
He possesses a kind
of quiet, rural, rustic simplicity; untouched by the times.
His lifelong study of contemplative taoism (Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu etc) and Japanese
zen aesthetics are evident in the way he lives his life.
The inner journey of a serious martial artist has left an
unmistakable Asian stamp on Master Waller.
I could easily see him living in a thatched-roof cottage of pre-20th Century
Japan, in some lost valley.
Maybe one day?
