Read an Excerpt

A kungfu exponent moves the way he moves, not because he wants to please spectators, but because that way gives him the best technical advantages in specific combat situations. His kungfu form is the result of, and practiced for, effective fighting; not devised for attractive demonstration, though to the uninitiated many kungfu patterns may appear flowery.
