About Chinese Gung Fu

The new edition of Bruce Lee's classic Chinese Gung Fu: The Philosophical Art of Self-Defense rejuvenates the authority, insight and charm of the master's original 1963 publication for modern audiences. It seamlessly brings together Lee's original language, descriptions and demonstrations with new material for readers, martial arts enthusiasts and collectors that want Lee in his purest form.

The new edition includes digitally enhanced vintage photographs, previously unpublished pictures with Lee's original handwritten notes, Chinese characters written by the author and painstakingly scanned for this book, and contemporary introductions by Lee's widow Linda Lee Cadwell and daughter Shannon Lee.

This timeless work preserves the integrity of Lee's hand-drawn diagrams and captioned photo sequences in which he demonstrates a variety of training exercises and fighting techniques, ranging from gung fu stances and leg training to single- and multiple- opponent scenarios. Thought-provoking essays on the history of gung fu, the theory of yin and yang, and personal, first-edition testimonials by James Y. Lee, the legendary Ed Parker and jujutsu icon Wally Jay round out this one and only book by Lee on the Chinese martial arts.

Excerpt

Th center of the Far Eastern martial arts has been the art of Gung Fu, whose principles and techniques pervaded and influenced the different arts of Oriental self-defense. Because Gung Fu has been shrouded under a veil of utmost secrecy, it is very seldom heard of in the Western world as well as many other Far Eastern countries.

Its history covers four thousand years.

Gung Fu is for health promotion, cultivation of mind, and self-protection.
