About this title

Synopsis:

Carradine shares the knowledge he has obtained through his years of practicing kung fu, and offers advice on healing, nutrition, stance training, stretching, class, self-defense, meditation, and philosophy

From Library Journal:

At first glance, this book appears to be a historical and philosophical treatment of Shaolin Kung Fu. But the reader soon discovers that it is more the story of Carradine the actor/martial artist, plus a limited philosophy of Kung Fu. The first half of the book is interesting. It gives an account of Carradine's initiation into the martial arts and his work on the TV series Kung Fu . Carradine comes across as very self-assured and completely devoted to the arts. The second part focuses on the philosophy of Kung Fu, but the narrative is disjointed and rambling. Points are not always clear and some bits of "wisdom" sound as if they came out of a fortune cookie. Carradine fans and martial arts supporters will probably enjoy this book, but those looking for instruction will not find it here.
