The Rose Li School is not associated with or registered with any 'external to the School' Chinese martial arts body or organisation. The School is independent of these organisations.The School continues practice and follow the customs and principles laid down by Miss Li. During Miss Li's lifetime she was never accredited by, or registered with, any external body. Her lineage and the quality of her teaching spoke for themselves. Her opinion was that she should therefore not be associated with, or be a member of, any martial arts organisations. This issue was further added to by the fact that Rose Li was one of the few individuals instrumental in first introducing Chinese Internal Martial Arts into both the USA and the UK and many of the people later making up external regulatory bodies (including in some cases executive members - see for example here and here ) had once been students of Miss Li.
