How does a smaller and weaker person defend himself or herself against a larger, stronger opponent? The answer lies in the martial art of Wing chun. Developed by a woman over 400 years ago, it has gone on to become the most popular form of kung fu. One of its most famous students was film star Bruce Lee, who was taught by Grandmaster Ip Chun's father, Ip Man. Wing chun is a close-range martial art which is based on simple and highly effective movements. With its emphasis on easy-to-learn techniques rather than force, it is suitable for both men and women, young and old, and for all levels of physical fitness. In this guide, Grandmaster Ip Chun and Michael Tse demonstrate the first form of wing chun (siu lim tao) and show how it can be used for self-defence. They also discuss the many other benefits of wing chun, which include increasing your levels of energy (qi) and vitality, developing your confidence and inner strength, and learning the skills of meditation, through 130 step-by-step photographs and instructions.
