About Richard Del Connor

I have been publishing my poetry since 1964 and writing lyrics since 1970.  I write fiction and nonfiction about Original Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Tai Chi Chuan, Shaolin Kung Fu, strategy and European philosophy.

In 2013 I published MASONIC KUNG FU on my Shaolin Communications imprint. This ended my spiritual journey with the Freemasons since 2007.  The book is about two Chinese teenagers rescuing a British Naval Officer Freemason as the Japanese invade the Chinese coastal cities in 1937.  It is based on many true stories I uncovered during my research of the "Masonic Kung Fu Form" (dance) that is very popular worldwide.  I was the first one to uncover its original origins since WWII probably because all those who knew what it was died in WWII.  This Kung Fu dance is known worldwide and was even supported by the Chinese Government in schools without knowing its true origins.  The book creates a fictional parallel to the original true story.

In 2014 I published the book SUPERSOUL 13 about my spiritual journey into the Vedic Scriptures of ancient India.  These are probably the most ancient "words of God."  I was so inspired that my journal of events portrays how these studies profoundly affected my life and interactions with other people at that time.  These studies of the Baghavad Ghita and other scriptures improved my life.

Summer of 2015 my screenplay, Kung Fu Cowboy Rock & Roll Movie 1, won 1st Place in the Action On Film movie festival.  I performed as Kung Fu Cowboy the singing flutist for events in Chinatown and a Hollywood roast of martial arts director Art Camacho. 

In 2016 I wrote and began production on a prequel movie, Kung Fu Cowboy: Zombie Killer.

I am completing the ACT ZEN TO BE ZEN book for publication April 8, 2018.  This is a book designed for actors.

I am also completing the 12 LAWS OF A MEANINGFUL LIFE book. 

My current poetry memoir is COYOTE IN A GRAVEYARD.  It’s a real life comedy.

Now I’ve built my new Shaolin Kung Fu Kwoon in Lancaster, California. So now I can finally offer my classes online over the Internet to people around the country. Not just because it’s hard to find that many local customers, but because this kung fu has improved and saved the lives of hundreds of people already in my lifetime.  I would like to offer it to more people.
