Editorial Reviews

Review

“Brian Kennedy and Elizabeth Guo have produced a fascinating and thorough work on the real Jingwu Association, providing heretofore unprecedented access to the foundation, training, and culture of this very important and interesting time and place in the history of Chinese martial arts.”
—Tim Cartmell, translator of A Study of Taijiquan by Sun Lutang and The Method of Chinese Wrestling by Tong Zhongyi

“A spectacular contribution to filling the gap in early twentieth-century Chinese martial arts and cultural history.”
—Stanley Henning, Chinese martial arts historian

“This book should be required reading for anyone who is studying a Chinese martial art. Traditional martial artists of the Japanese and Korean varieties will also find this book worth reading, as well as those who are interested in Eastern or Chinese history and culture.”
Striking Thoughts

“I really enjoyed reading [Jingwu] and would definitely recommend to all readers who are interested in finding out more about the cultural context of Chinese martial arts during the Republican period through the lens of the Jing wu organization.”
