Overview

Wing Chun is one of the most mysterious and effective forms of Kung-Fu ever developed. It's unique training exercises and principles give the practitioner the ability to often overcome larger and stronger opponents, as well as "first-strike" speed. Legend has it that a woman who witnessed a hawk fighting a snake originally developed the system. She observed how the snake evaded the hawk and was always able to strike first by following a linear pattern and using a springing type of energy. Alan Lamb, a Hong Kong-trained instructor of Wing Chun with over 30 years of experience, now brings this unique system into the 21st century, adapting it to today's streets. In this volume, the sequel to Explosive Combat Wing Chun Volume 1, Lamb continues the monumental work he began in the previous book by familiarizing the reader with the ancient principles of Wing Chun in a modern context. Wing Chun was based on the principle of simplicity, and this principle is expressed in the three weaponless forms conventionally taught within this system: Sil Lum Tau, Cham Kiu, and Biu Jee. In these photo-packed pages, Lamb reveals the movements of the three major forms from various angles, giving the reader a textbook as well as a set of guidelines for their proper execution. He then reveals the intent of each form, as well as a multitude of applications. Explosive Combat Wing Chun truly shows you how the secrets of one of feudal China's most ingenious fighting systems can be adapted to the 21st century.
