The crucial guide to Wing Chun Kung-Fu—basic forms and principles, fighting and grappling, advanced techniques and weapons.
Featuring over 300 black and white photos and step by step illustrations, Wing Chun Kung-Fu: A Complete Guide offers clear, straightforward, and authoritative instruction to the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun Kung-Fu. This Wing Chun book introduces and demonstrates the three empty-hand wing chun kung fu forms, the combative building blocks of the system, including sticky-hand and sticky-leg fighting, chin-na, and the theory of vital strikes to the weak points of human anatomy (dar mak). This Wing Chun guide also introduces the wooden dummy form, the six-and-a-half pole form, and the usage of butterfly knives.
In addition, this kung fu book provides detailed observation at the theory in the back of each and every move so to develop an in-depth understanding of both the practical application of this fighting art and the meaning in the back of it. Other sections include specialized fighting and grappling techniques and instructions on the usage of weapons. An additional section is devoted to conditioning, stretching, power training and weight training exercises so we can be of particular benefit for serious students of Wing Chun and practitioners of any martial art.
