Must-read material for practitioners of all levels of expertise Kung-fu was first popularized in the West by Bruce Lee in the 1960s. Since then it has become one of the most popular martial arts in the world, and nearly every town and city now has at least one kung-fu school. Inside Kung-Fu is the world's foremost martial arts magazine and the force behind the extremely popular Inside Kung Fu series. This most recent addition to the series brings together contributions by more than 30 of today's most respected kung-fu practitioners, each of whom is an acknowledged expert in a specific aspect or style of kung fu. Unlike many other kung fu books, Ultimate Guide to Kung-Fu does not focus on one style or school of thought. Instead, it provides broad ranging coverage of topics of interest to new and experienced practitioners alike. Categories covered include history and traditions, training, techniques, self-defense applications, competition, and advanced practice. Hundreds of photographs throughout clarify key points and put information into a practical context.
