A chapter on Beggar's style, would have been better as an appendix or left out. There was no explanation as to why this was included.
The section on fist formations generalised this amongst kung fu and not specifically white eyebrow style.
There are 19 full page pictures (not including 1/2 page illustrations and 1 blank page) best described as space fillers with no teaching benefit. These would have been better allocated to illustrating the first form called the straight step set, instead there is an unclear text explanation.
The section concerning applied technique uses as partner exercises is very clear.
When diagrams are used these used very well and bring clarity to the text.
Good idea using symbols to illustrate teaching points for the written explanations for power generation. In addition this text is very clear.
Very clear explanation regarding qualities required for self defence.
Excellent explanation for training specialised fist forms.
From page 4-109 there are several full page drawings ect which seems to be there as a filling, to get more pages in the book. If you don't know enough about Bak Mei to fill out 145 pages, write a book with fewer pages or not at all.
In my opinion, he should have gone in detail with the Bak Mei material he is sharing, then I would probably have given it 4 stars.

is a small book but with real good information
I enjoy it and learning from it.
The information in this book is very well thought out very accurate and explains techniques and theories in good detail. My only critique is the layout, which in my opinion could've been done in a more of a structured way. Other than that I was very impressed and very grateful that Mater Rea has written this book. Please understand that a book and does not replace actual instruction however this is an excellent guide to assist you when you are studying this rare and exotic form of Chinese martial arts.
