Book Description Black Belt Books - A Division of Ohara Pub;ications, Inc., Valencia, California, 1973. Trade Paperback. Book Condition: As New. 20th Printing. 224 Pages. No defects noted. Interior text pages are flawless. Kung- Fu is considered one of the world's most effective methods of fighting today. Nearly everyone, male and female, young and old, can participate in it. For a long time the teachings of Kung-Fu were restricted to Chinese. In the United States, the schools existed only in areas where Chinese-Americans lived. When other Asian self-defense methods such as Ju-Jitsu, Judo, Karate and Aikido were flourishing, the Chinese martial arts remained a mystery to most Westerners. Although Kung-Fu is fairly well-known today, there are only a handful of qualified teachers around. As a result, the art continues to be shrouded with misconceptions, myths and mysteries. This book was written to present the true facts of the ancient art. It provides introductions into the Kung-Fu philosophies which are informative to both beginners and to experienced practitioners. The fifth chapter contains rare photographs of two men going through a sparring session under the Hung system of Kung-Fu. The reader will grasp a better knowledge of the training methods after studying this chapter. Another highlight in this book is the section showing the fighting techniques patterned after the five animal forms of The Tiger, The Crane, The Dragon, The Leopard and The Snake. Contents in Six Parts: Historical Background, Philosophy of Kung-Fy, Building a Foundation, Techniques of Boxing, The Hung-Gar Fist of Siu Lum Kung-Fu, and Conclusion. Size: 5 "x 8".
