I bought a few books a month back and they were nothing compared to this, its in a league all its own.
I was very surprised, this book is awesome and a definite must have for all Ving Tsun lovers.
The book starts with this Albert Einstein phrase, and Mr Belonoha does it very well when writing his book.
I am new to wing chun, I've been training since last september, and bought this book to get to know the background and philosophy of this art. It has been very helpful for learning the names of techniques, understanding the basis af a certain move or technique, where and how to employ it,
and to get a general view of this great martial art. GREAT BOOK
They are as follows:
1. This is more of a reference volume then a training manual (which is good of course) but for those looking for clear, and concise and simplified explanations may wish to look elsewhere.
Some versions of hand techniques are not shown with pictures, other techniques are mentioned by the author long before they are described leaving a novice quite confused at first.
2. The wooden dummy form and the two weapons sets are absent from the text which is odd considering the rest of the book is so concise in covering the three hand forms, theory, concept, nutrition, health, etc.
Other then these as far as I'm concerned the book is top notch and I don't think their is anything quite like it out there anywhere else.
