Straightforward and efficient, Wing Chun Kung Fu is one of the most popular forms of Kung Fu because it emphasizes techniqu over strength. By using the skills of Wing Chun Kung Fu, a smaller and weaker person can easily overcome a larger strong opponent. With its focus on technique rather than force, it is suitable for both men and women, young and old, and for those of all levels of physical fitness.

First off, let me say that Grandmaster Yip Chun is my Si-Gung(teacher's teacher or Kung-Fu grandfather). Michael Tse is my Si-Sook(kung fu uncle). And with their martial talents, skills, and abilities, I believe that they have created the essential Wing Chun book. What seperates this book from the rest of the others, is the fact that no matter if you are a martial arts enthusiast, a Wing Chun practitioner, a historian, or just a martial art junkie or philosopher, you will get something positive out of this book. They speak the truth about the 'pure' art of Wing Chun. If you don't believe it, consider this, Ip Chun is the eldest son of the late great legendary Ip Man, the grandmaster of what many consider to be the greatest martial artist of the 20th century. Without Ip Man, there would be no foundation for Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do, and there would be no one who would teach Wing Chun to the world without his guidance. I must say this: if you are a practitioner, please do not regard this book as another book to shove in the shelf after completion. This book changed my entire life 3 years ago when I needed guidance to motivate me. Taking the Wing Chun concepts, you can apply them to life as well. I really hope that all of you who purchased it can see beyond the physical aspect of what the authors are trying to say and most importantly, may Grandmaster Ip Man, Ip Chun, and Ip Ching's lineage and tribe increase forever.
This is an outstanding book on authentic Wing Chun Kung Fu. The book provides information on the basics of Wing Chun and a step-by-step guide to the first Wing Chun form, Sil Lim Tau. There is also a section on the combat applications of the Sil Lim Tau form. Altogether a great book.
It has a wonderful background on wing chun and takes you through the first form. Its a very good book and worth its price!
One of the best Wing Chun guides written. Yip Chun has a grasp of the art that comes from years training under the grand-master of the system and his father, Yip Man. Contains a detailed history of the art as well as a breakout of the first form, Sil Lim Tao...this should be the first Wing Chun book you buy.
