Sifu Narcyz Latecki, voted as one of the Top One Hundred Extraordinary Martial Artists of the World and Prominent Wushu Coach, is also co-chairman of the International Wushu Sanshou Dao Association (IWSD), from which he holds a seventh level black belt (黑带七段 Qi Duan) and a fourth degree master level.
Narcyz was born in 1969 in Poland. He has won the title of all-around champion many times in national and international Kungfu/Wushu competitions in Europe and the United States. Beginning his martial arts studies in the early eighties at the age of twelve, he and his two friends formed a "martial arts fight club" in his basement, where they practiced fighting techniques and strengthening their bodies, intensively training from 5 to 6 hours every single day. From this practice, his interest led him to acquire professional instruction in Japanese Karate Kyokushin. Two years later, he turned his passion to Chinese martial arts, which has become his life-long pursuit.
Since then, he studied extensively with several prominent masters in internal and external Chinese martial arts (Kung Fu/Wushu, Tai Chi and Chi Kung) in Poland, North America and China. Some of the main masters with whom he has studied are: Yang Jwingming 杨俊敏 - who is the founder of the International YMAA Training System (styles taught: Shaolin Changquan, Baihequan, Qinna, Yang Style Taiji, and Qigong); Liang Shouyu 梁守渝 - who was voted as one of the most outstanding masters and top professional coaches in China (styles taught: Emei System, Wuji System, Traditional Wushu, Chen Style Taiji, Xingyi, Bagua, Qigong, Da Pong Gong, Tie Bu Shan - Iron Shirt, Shuaijiao and Weapons); and Ma Xianda 馬賢達 - who is one of the first and highest ranking masters in China, nominated as Jiu Duan (styles taught: Ma Shi Tongbei System - Bajiquan, Piguaquan, Fanziquan, Chuojiao, Tongbei weapons).

This system does not restrain how each style or routine should be performed. It emphasizes “dropping the rules and yet complying with the rules.” As long as one understands how to utilize the principles and rules, one has free will in how to perform a routine according to his/her understanding. The routines can be practiced quickly or slowly.
