Based on the life story of The Dragon Master and written by his trusted student. This book is an authoritative and captivating re-vision of traditional martial arts culture for a postmodern globalised world. Unconventional in form yet luminously written, The Kung-Fu Diaries: The Life and Times of a Dragon Master (1920-2001) is an utterly compelling read.
