Synopsis: Abundantly and attractively illustrated, this English version of the book presents the essence of Shaolin under three major divisions: A Brief History, The Basis, and The Technique. These divisions, in turn, deal with such important aspects of the sport as the following: the Eighteen Exercises of Monk Ta Mo, The Muscle Change Classic, the Five Styles: Dragon, Tiger, Leopard, Snake, and Crane. an explanation of ch'i (intrinsic energy) and the techniques of its mastery an explanation of "hard and soft" the five prerequisites and the ten commandments. The development of finesse in the art of the hand and foot. Reders who know Mr. Smith's earlier work, A Complete Guide to Judo, need hardly to be told that the present work is written in the same concise and highly readable style-or that it is another valuable contribution to the literautre of the martial arts of the Orient. An excellent book which can serve as an introduction to Chinese boxing...and make understand its general principles, basis of Okinawa and Japanese KARATE. A 'must' for the karate enthusiast for it deals with the very foundations of this art. The book is published with the same excellent care and taste that is a feature of all Tuttle books. It is the only book in English that deals with the boxing form to any degree...Extensive photographs. Devotees to the many arts of self-defense will undoubtedly enjoy this brief textbook of methodology.
