Editorial Reviews

Review

There are some gems in the text that have the feeling of a 1950s Hong Kong film. For example, when Leung is queueing up for an evening function and two triads jump the queue, he decks them, much to the admiration of the crowd. But he has only a moment to enjoy their adulation before he spots 20 men with broken bottles heading for him. He then runs 2km, loses his entourage and comes to rest at the Queen Victoria statue in Victoria Park, where he promptly vomits. There are also his references to his friend Bruce Lee, who to a certain extent has become more legend than man -- that as well as fighting, they were Elvis Presley fans and enjoyed dancing, at which they were apparently skilled. The book describes the two teenagers going to weekly dance classes so they could swivel their hips like the King. --South China Morning Post, March 1, 2009

The story of Duncan Leung - childhood friend of Bruce Lee and disciple of Wing Chun master Yip Man - is valuable not only for the insights it offers into Chinese martial arts but also for its portrayal of the lost Hong Kong of the 1950s and 1960s. Reading Ken Ing's Wing Chun Warrior, which chronicles Leung's Kung Fu escapades, will be a jarring revelation to anyone familiar with the manic but orderly and largely peaceful city of seven million people that is Hong Kong today. The city described by Ing is a place where Kung Fu practitioners wielded eight-chop knives in the streets and literally battled their way from one martial arts studio to another to prove their fighting prowess. -- Asia Times, May 16, 2009

You will learn nothing about Wing Chun from this book. It is an interesting read by a Wing Chun master who learned from Ip Man during a time when you tested your martial arts on the streets. Sifu Leung talks about his life, some of his fights, and his philosophy on martial arts. An easy read but no secrets here.

Format: Paperback
As someone who knows little about martial arts besides what I've seen on film, I found this book to be accessible and not overloaded with too much kung fu jargon. The book tells the story of Duncan Leung, a Hong Kong boy who studied Wing Chun kung fu under famous master Yip Man in the 1950s, and then left Hong Kong to establish his own school in the US. Along the way, we hear about his friendship with Bruce Lee, his encounters with other martial arts masters, and various fights he has in the streets of Kowloon and in New York. The author ties each anecdote in with a Chinese proverb or teaching from ancient Chinese philosophers, and cartoon-style illustrations follow each fight story, making for an entertaining and educational read.

"Wing Chun Warrior: The True Tales of Wing Chun Kung Fu Master" is the paperback version of the large hard cover version bearing the same name.
I found this book to be a excellent read, due to the fact that it contains so many stories of Sifu Duncan Leung's life while growing up in Hong Kong. Sifu Leung trained in the Wing Chun System of Kung Fu with his boyhood friend the late Bruce Lee. It was actually Bruce Lee who got Sifu Leung into training Wing Chun with the Late Great Grandmaster Yip Man.
I think for anyone who trains Wing Chun whether beginner or advanced will for this book Inspiring as I did when I read it. There are many fascinating stories at times that I could not put this book down, I hope you will also find this book fascinating as well. Cheers!!!

Interesting story, you wont learn a tremendous amount about Wing Chun, but I really enjoyed the way it was written with chapters starting as ancient parables tied to Duncan's personal life lessons and stories.

If you like martial arts, especially Wing Chun then this is a great little book definitely worth reading. Lots of interesting back stories, anecdotes, illustrations and Chinese philosophy and history. As a special bonus I got a fresh perspective on both Bruce Lee and Ip Man. A chance to read about the real people behind these towering legends. In summary great stuff about a dying breed of real life martial art warriors from a bygone era. Just wish it could have been a little big longer!
