In addition to the master’s insightful explanations on gung fu, this sleek book features digitally enhanced photography, previously unpublished Bruce Lee images with original handwritten notes, a brand-new front and back cover, and introductions by widow Linda Lee Cadwell and daughter Shannon Lee.
This new modern edition of the 1963 classic preserves the authority and charm of Lee’s original language for readers who want Bruce Lee in his purest written form. This official reproduction – as sanctioned by Shannon Lee and Bruce Lee Enterprises – features Chinese characters written by the author and painstakingly scanned for this project as well as vintage Bruce Less photos from his personal collection.
Chinese Gung Fu also comes to life through captioned photo sequences and Bruce Lee’s own hand-drawn diagrams that demonstrate a variety of training exercises and fighting techniques, ranging from basic gung fu stances, waist and leg training, single- and multiple-opponent scenarios as well as an essay on the theory of yin and yang.
In addition, the new Bruce Lee book includes the testimonials from the first edition by James Y. Lee, the legendary Ed Parker and jujutsu icon Wally Jay as well as contemporary introductions by Linda Lee Cadwell and Shannon Lee to help readers contextualize this iconic work.
Recently discovered Bruce Lee images from a lost photo session, which are described by Bruce Lee in his own handwriting, round out this new edition of Chinese Gung Fu.
With classic material remastered and 25 pages of new material included for the modern reader, Chinese Gung Fu: The Philosophical Art of Self-Defense reasserts its place as a timeless work by one of the greatest masters in martial arts. It is a must for every gung fu practitioner and Bruce Lee fan!
