  1. Kung Fu is very popular thanks to Bruce Lee in my opinion but somehow it is not as mainstream as Karate or other martial arts for us to learn. Thanks for sharing about Wing Chun Kung Fu with us. I love the fact that this books has a lot of illustrations that will make life easier. Oh wow, the author is very knowledge in all martial arts! That is impressive. I am going to check the book out! 

    • Hi Nuttanee,

      Thanks for your comments much appreciated, Yes I am a big Bruce Lee fan and have a number of articles relating to Bruce Lee on this website, please put a search for Bruce Lee on the site to see all the related posts. Bruce made Kung Fu big in the seventy with the release of his movies. That`s when many wanted to learn Kung Fu. Karate has been a steady martial art with a large following but both Kung Fu and Karate along with many of the other traditional martials has lost some popularity to the modern martial arts like Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Ju Jit Su due to the UFC and media. We must keep the traditional arts going there is a lot of benefits from practicing them aside from self defense. 

      These books hopefully bring in new students for these traditional martial arts,

      Great comments, love the discussion on martial arts

  2. This is an excellent review.  It gives me a full insight into Wing Chin Kung Fu.

    This is a sport that I know little about, but your review tells me exactly as to what the book includes and the help and information that I would get from it.

    This looks like a very high skilled sport and your review certainly would raise my interest in it.

    Keep up the good work.

    • Hi Geoff,

      Thanks for your comments much appreciated, Glad you like my review, yes Wing Chun is a great form of self defense and enjoyable to learn, I have practiced a number of martial arts and found Wing Chun to be simple and effective, there are plenty of clubs globally but, the books give you the detail of the concepts and theories and aid your practice. 

      Yes this is a high level skill but don`t let that put you off, as long as you train and be consistent you will achieve high levels.

      Please visit again, all the best,
