Wing Chun is the most popular form of Chinese Kung Fu in the world today, with over four million practitioners. This guide will fascinate and educate anyone interested in the martial arts, from beginner to master. The art as it is presently understood has been handed down from teacher to student for more than three hundred years. Until now, no one has ever stepped back and taken a critical look at why this art's techniques are presented and performed the way they are. This book, by Wing Chun master Danny Xuan and martial-arts authority John Little, is the first to decipher these techniques that until now have been encrypted within this art. Xuan and Little reveal how Wing Chun was designed holistically, based on the laws of physics, human nature, and biomechanics. It was also designed with economy, efficiency, and productivity in mind. Unlike other martial arts, Wing Chun doesn't focus on making a person larger, more rugged, acrobatic, or animal-like; rather, it focuses on making optimal use of one's own bodily structure and power potential by applying the sciences of biomechanics and physics. Thus, it is possible for males and females of all ages and sizes to excel in this art.Show more

During his lifetime, legendary martial artist Bruce Lee formulated a complex personal philosophy—a synthesis of Eastern and Western ideals—that extolled the virtues of knowledge and total mastery of one’s self. Most of his philosophical writings could be found only within the personal library of the Bruce Lee estate … until John Little was given permission to publish them for the wider world. The Warrior Within is the most comprehensive volume of these teachings, meant to help you apply Lee’s philosophies to your own life. This unique guide reveals such life-affirming secrets as how to see the totality of life and put things into perspective, understand the concept of Yin and Yang, defeat adversity by adapting to circumstances, and tap into inner spiritual forces to help shape the future. The Warrior Within is an engrossing and easy-to-understand guide to the little-explored world of Bruce Lee. “Compelling and interesting.”—Library JournalShow more
