dcs-author-chrisAward-winning author Chris Bradford enthralled and inspired students during a two-day visit to Dulwich College Shanghai. His action-packed performances included elements of various martial arts: Iaido (samurai swordsmanship), Karate, Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, Judo, Muay Thai and Kickboxing, as well as techniques learned whilst on an intensive close protection course, to become a qualified professional bodyguard.

On tour in South-east Asia, Bradford was keen to visit Shanghai, the setting for his next book in the Bodyguard series. A day spent touring the lanes and alleys of Puxi in a sidecar allowed him to access places such as the 1933 Slaughterhouse, as well as visiting families living in traditional lane homes. Bradford was amazed by the size and extent of Shanghai as seen from the top of the World Financial Centre (‘The Bottle-opener’).

A gracious and charming author, Chris gained the respect of students and teachers alike, with incredible swordsmanship skills, speed, energy and a fine sense of humor. Following the performances, students in Years 5 & 6 were keen to purchase and read his Young Samurai books, whilst those in Senior School were attracted by the Bodyguard series.
