              Wing Chun is the most popular form of Chinese Kung Fu in the world today, with over 4 million practitioners. The art as it is presently understood has been handed down from teacher to student for more than 300 years.Until now, no one has ever stepped back and taken a critical loo...k at why the techniques in the art are presented and performed the way they are. This book, by martial arts authority John Little and Wing Chun Master Danny Xuan, is the first to decipher these techniques that until now have been encrypted within this form. Xuan and Little reveal how Wing Chun was designed holistically, based on the laws of physics, human nature, and biomechanics. It was also designed with economy, efficiency, and productivity in mind. Unlike other martial arts, Wing Chun doesn't focus on making a person larger, more rugged, acrobatic or animal-like; rather, it focuses on one's making optimal use of their own bodily structure and power potential by applying the sciences of biomechanics and physics. Thus, it is possible for males and females of all ages and sizes to excel in this art. The Tao of Wing Chun provides a readable, authoritative means of cultivating personal protection skills, enhanced flexibility, improved coordination, greater stamina, physical and mental fitness, while simultaneously cultivating humility, focus, determination, self-confidence, character, camaraderie and deep inner strength. Foremost, this book offers the reader the means by which to apply Wing Chun principles in daily life. Featuring beautiful high definition color photographs from locales as exotic as China's revered Shaolin Temple in addition to precise step-by-step photos of the Siu Nim Tao form and key exercises and self-defense techniques from the art, The Tao of Wing Chun will fascinate, educate, and entertain a wide range of readers--from beginner to Master.
