There are stories and legends about the main historical figures of Chin Woo, as well many personal experiences of the author with his fellow students and coaches. I particularly enjoy the accounts of his times spent with his own Master in Malaysia.
Chin Woo philosophy, forms and weapons are explained in detail, with a good number of photographs. There are also some entertaining reports of how Chin Woo has been portrayed in the cinema, making reference to some of the best known Kung Fu films.
The book brings us right up to date with some recent activities, the legacy of Chin Woo and a personal letter to the author from his teacher, Master Teng.
I have been interested in Chinese martial arts and Chin Woo for many years. I keep picking this book up because it is a good read and reference source. It would be a useful addition to the collection of anyone interested in martial arts – practitioner or fan. Recommended!
I have been practicing different forms of Martial Arts for several years now, but have never had much historical background knowledge until I read this book. It was a revelation for me and allowed me to understand and appreciate my sport from a completely new perspective.
Mind you, this is by no means a 'dry' history of Kung Fu. Using numerous photographs and many often entertaining insights into current culture, the author successfully connects historical developments to the present day. He even comments on the influences on well-known Kung Fu films.
A great read - even if you're not an active Martial Arts practitioner!

Unsure why the other review here marked it down as they guessed it was a biography of the founder. It is not the books fault if you do not read the book description before buying it. The title is not deceptive - it is called 'The Story of Chin Woo'
