Overview

David Carradines "Spirit of Shaolin" behandelt die Philosophie hinter der Kampfkunst des Kung Fu. Carradine erzählt die Geschichte seiner eigenen Wandlung zum Kung-Fu-Verehrer und bietet Einblicke und Inspiration für diejenigen, die folgen möchten. Er geht auf die Weisheit der alten chinesischen Meister ein, auf die Prinzipien der Shaolin-Philosophie, die tiefere Bedeutung der Kampfkünste und ihre Relevanz für die moderne Welt. Ebenfalls enthalten sind seine zwölf eigenen Lektionen, einschließlich Anmerkungen zu Ernährung, Stretching und Meditation. Weltberühmt wurde Carradine durch die Verkörperung des Kwai Chang Caine in der beliebten Fernsehserie "Kung Fu". Sie war es auch, die ihn zum Anhänger der Shaolin-Philosophie und zum Kung-Fu-Fachmann machte. Mit der Nachfolgeserie "Kung Fu - Im Zeichen des Drachen" knüpfte er an den Erfolg des Originals an und brachte die Kunst dabei einer ganz neuen Generation nahe. Jano Rohleder legt mit diesem Band die deutsche Erstveröffentlichung der 1991 erschienenen Originalausgabe vor.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At first glance, this book appears to be a historical and philosophical treatment of Shaolin Kung Fu. But the reader soon discovers that it is more the story of Carradine the actor/martial artist, plus a limited philosophy of Kung Fu. The first half of the book is interesting. It gives an account of Carradine's initiation into the martial arts and his work on the TV series Kung Fu . Carradine comes across as very self-assured and completely devoted to the arts. The second part focuses on the philosophy of Kung Fu, but the narrative is disjointed and rambling. Points are not always clear and some bits of ``wisdom'' sound as if they came out of a fortune cookie. Carradine fans and martial arts supporters will probably enjoy this book, but those looking for instruction will not find it here.-- Jennifer Langlois, Missouri Western State Coll. Lib., St. Joseph
