Description

Fearless: The Story of Chin Woo Kung Fu examines the legends and the facts behind one of the world's largest martial arts organisations. As well as exploring the legend of the founder, Huo Yuanjia, known as "Fearless", the author looks at how the Chin Woo (Jingwu) Association revolutionised martial arts at the turn of the twentieth century. Find out how Chin Woo expanded throughout the world, spreading it's philosophy and concepts. Learn how Bruce Lee helped Chin Woo become one of the most well-known and popular kung fu schools in the 1970's. Discover the fundamental kung fu forms and weapons of the Chin Woo style. The author, Glen Stanway, also traces his personal martial arts lineage, from the original Shanghai school, to the famous Yap brothers in Malaysia, and his own kung fu teacher, Master Teng Wie Yoo. Illustrated with over one hundred photos, the reader is taken on a fascinating journey from Qing dynasty China to the present day and beyond.
