It was a refreshing take on history, which has been subject to much revisionist bias from multiple directions across the ages. I would have like to have seen a little more detail and volume in the book, and I mean that as a constructive criticism. Maybe there will be a possibility of more writings in the future? Overall, It was a great representation of the art.
- Brief history of Tibetan martial arts
- Biography of the late Grand Master Chan Tai San, and his apprentice’s reflecti
on on his Sifu (good or bad)
- Research about Sing Lung (who is btw. also connected to our lineage of Hung Ga)
- Wong Yam Lam’s Lei Tai Challenge
- Explanation of the development of Lion’s Roar, Lama Paai, Hap Ga and White Crane
- Lama Pai fighting theory
- Curriculum overview
- Examples of typical techniques and their critical analysis, and more!
The scholar in me appreciates the inclusion of Chinese characters and translation of some of the important maxims, sayings and principles as well.
My verdict is simple: must have. Make sure to check out next book form the series, Lion’s Roar San Da: Combined Old and New Methods
