A whopping 336 pages, fully illustrated with rare and never-before-published photos, in both colour and black-and-white! Mui Fa Publishing proudly present world-renowned WSL Ving Tsun Kuen Hok teacher and author Sifu David Peterson’s new book: WSL VING TSUN KUEN HOK: AN OVERVIEW IN THE FORM OF ESSAYS.
WSL Ving Tsun Kuen Hok is the legacy of the late Sifu Wong Shun Leung, one of the most famous and formidable students of Ving Tsun (Wing Chun) Gung Fu patriarch, Grandmaster Ip Man. In the 1950s and 1960s, Wong Shun Leung almost single-handedly brought the fighting system of Ip Man to prominence in Hong Kong through his challenge matches, or Beimo, earning himself the nickname, Gong Sau Wong, the “King of Talking Hands”, such was his prowess as a fighter. However, Wong Shun Leung was far more than just a “scrapper” with an unbeaten record. He was also a Ving Tsun scientist, philosopher, outstanding teacher, and creator of an approach to combat that is now recognised as one of the most simple, direct, and efficient fighting methods ever devised, Ving Tsun Kuen Hok (Ving Tsun Combat Science).
In this volume, Sifu David Peterson, author and student of the late Wong Shun Leung, presents a detailed overview of the entire WSL Ving Tsun Kuen Hok method in the form of individual essays that explore the forms, concepts, techniques, and drills that comprise the legacy of his teacher, as well as an exclusive look at the life of Sifu Wong Shun Leung and his teacher, Grandmaster Ip Man. The book also discusses the very important connection between Wong Shun Leung and the late Bruce Lee, to whom he was mentor, teacher, and friend.
Fully illustrated, in both colour and black-and-white, with never-before-published photos, along with an extensive appendix containing extra references for the reader, WSL VING TSUN KUEN HOK: AN OVERVIEW IN THE FORM OF ESSAYS is a book that all practitioners of Ving Tsun, regardless of lineage or experience, should have in their reference collection.
