Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have known Master Ron Wheeler for nearly twenty years: First as an outstanding competitor and later as an excellent teacher who is well regarded and respected by his peers. His book Jow Ga is the first in English on one of the major Southern Chinese martial art systems. A work that is long overdue and I am sure will be well received in the CMA community."—Nick Scrima, President of ICMAC Worldwide Circuit

"Ron Wheeler is an extraordinary kung fu practitioner. As a result of his hard work and talent, he has consistently won top honors at national and international martial arts competitions. His new book is an excellent introduction to Jow Ga Kung Fu."—Hon K. Lee, Director of the Jow Ga Shaolin Institute
