Editorial Reviews

Review

..".outstanding ... There is no substitute for reading this wonderful book. It is a treasure trove of insightful information on Wing Chun, martial arts, modern Chinese history, and modern Chinese culture. It is also a great micro-history of a particular physical practice, and a great local history of Hong Kong." -- Journal of Chinese Military History

"Martial arts was scorned by traditional Chinese literati, ignored by Western historians, and predicted to go extinct by Western and Chinese modernizers. However, as this book brilliantly demonstrates, late imperial and twentieth century Chinese history cannot be properly understood without it ... Wing Chun students will see the most definitive exposition of the roots of their art, historians will see twentieth-century China through a new lens, and martial arts studies scholars will see a high water mark and model in their field." -- Martial Arts Studies

"The Creation of Wing Chun is a fascinating read and a book that I highly recommend to all Wing Chun students." -- Tony Massengill, Wing Chun Illustrated

About the Author

Benjamin N. Judkins holds a doctoral degree in political science from Columbia University. Jon Nielson is chief instructor at Wing Chun Hall in Salt Lake City, Utah.
