Synopsis

This little volume (around 5 1/4 X 7 1/4) is the "other" book in English by Wang Xuan Jie, favored disciple of Wang Xiang Zhai: the creator of Da Cheng or Great Achievement boxing. Wang wanted to revivify Chinese martial arts which had taken many blows to the ego from Japanese and Western opponents. He cut right to the core of the problem by criticizing many "outmoded" training methods, especially the practice of forms. If you think forms, set techniques, and many other aspects of Chinese martial arts have never come under the critical light that people like Bruce Lee shone, you don't know the history of the art. This book is illustrated by photographs of Wang himself demonstrating the methods of practice for the art. Wang was designated by the Founder to be capable of passing on this art.
