Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1963, this book includes personal testimonies regarding the author and his art from James Y. Lee, the legendary Ed Parker, and jujutsu icon Wally Jay. Through hand-drawn diagrams and captioned photo sequences, Lees text comes to life as he demonstrates a variety of training exercises and fighting techniques. Topics include basic gung fu stances, waist training, leg training, and the theory of yin and yang.
 
The re-edition of Bruce Lees original thoughts on kung fu offers martial arts enthusiasts and collectors exactly what they want: more Lee. Featuring digitally-enhanced photography, new pictures of Lee from a lost session and an original essay in Lees handwriting, Chinese Gung Fu still maintains its position as a timeless work by one of martial arts greatest masters.

Synopsis:

An exact facsimile edition of Bruce Lee's original book, a rare collector's item first published in 1963. This book includes stances, training and techniques against single and multiple attackers.
