“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
