Sifu Troy Holloway has been involved in martial arts for nearly 30 years. He has dedicated most of his life to the learning, preservation and dissemination of his chosen arts. He began his martial arts career at the age of ten in rural Idaho. His first introduction to martial arts was in Kamishin Ryu Karate under Shihan-Di Karl Quigg, while he explored other arts in his spare time. His first introduction to Taijiquan was under Sifu Don Sherman, under whom Troy studied the Cheng Man Ching 37 forms of Yang Style.
Sifu Troy moved to St. Louis in 1995 and it was there that he began his study of Chen Hun Yuan Xin Yi Taijiquan under Sifu Herb Parran. His study of Hun Yuan Taijiquan has taken him all over the world, for instance to Helsinki, Finland, where he studied with Hun Yuan Taijiquan founder Grandmaster Feng Zhi Qiang. He has also traveled to Beijing, China to train with two of GM Feng’s top disciples.
In October of 2002, Troy was promoted to first level assistant instructor in the Hun Yuan system. At that point he was allowed to teach his own classes on a limited basis. By April of 2009 he had been promoted to third level instructor and was given the title of Sifu in the Hun Yuan system. With this promotion, he was given the right to teach the entire Hun Yuan system with no restrictions.
In November 2010 Troy moved to Helena, Montana. There, he continues with his own practice and is working (slowly) on several more writing projects for Hubpages.com.
