Some reviewers have complained about the book lacking enough photographs. That would be true if one were trying to learn Kung Fu San Soo from a book alone. You can't, there's too much to it. If you are an experienced martial artist, looking to gain a familiarity with Kung Fu San Soo, this book will be very informative about our basic techniques. (There are hundreds of Kung Fu San Soo techniques-- the Basic 45 are the foundation for the rest.) So, if you want to learn Kung Fu San Soo, you must learn it from a knowledgeable instructor. For anyone who is, this book is very well written and invaluable.
This should be remedied in future editions as it would add immensely to the value of the book. In its present form, this book is not worth the purchase price.
I would recommend this for any green belt and up. It will make a good addition to your San Soo library. There is no way to learn San Soo from a book if one is uninitiated to the art, so don't expect to learn San Soo from this, but it makes for a good guide for those that have learned from an instructor.

This book is very good. The vast majority of lessons (90% or better) are exactly as recorded by other first generation masters and black belts who studied under Grandmaster Woo. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Terry L Kuhs

Would recommend this book to any student of Kung Fu San Soo.
This is a excellent book. Master Gatewood deserves to be given credit for his attempts to keep San Soo held to the highest of standards, not an easy task. Read morePublished on July 22, 2012 by Timothy A. Clyne
Ah, fourty-five self defense moves. Shame that there are only thirteen pictures in it! OK, the book had some good concepts, and I'm sure that most of the self-defense lessons are... Read morePublished on November 8, 2003 by Joseph M Burtner
