Chinese Gung Fu: The Philosophical Art of Self Defenseby Bruce Lee
Synopses & Reviews
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.
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.
