    Good introduction to WC

    I agree with the previous reviewer this is not a book on Chi, qigong or taichi. It illustrates the basic punches and blocks under the system of Wing Chun, as well as the first form and some applications. The photos are well done, are multiangled and plenty. It is mainly useful as a reference for practitioners. For beginners, who have no access to teachers, you could use this book together with Cheung's DVD's [the first DVD in his Wing Chun series covers the same as this book, the subsequent DVD's are not for beginners]. Note: as a beginner, using this book you can only learn the form, you need classes to learn Wing Chun. That said, if you just want an idea of what Wing Chun is all about, then this is an affordable option, although there is not much theory presented.

    Sil Lum Tao and that's about it

    This text shows Chueung's version of the sil lum tao form of wing chun kung fu, and very very little on the Chi. there are better sil lum tao books and much better chi books but for 10 or 12 bucks I guess it is ok.
