Kung Fu has evolved from a traditional means of defence to become a system of attacking and defending oneself, with or without weapons, exercising the body and maintaining good physical and mental health. As such, these practices have found an international following. Yet what has remained a largely unexplored area is the scientific principles behind these martial arts. This book not only covers the brief history of Chinese martial arts, but also brings together the wisdom of a Kung Fu grand master with a scientist and teacher to explain the scientific reasons why Kung Fu is the powerful practice that it is. Using the principles of physics, biomechanics and biology, with a number of drawings showing some basic postures of Kung Fu, the authors present a deep understanding of how the styles, the specific movements and methods of attack and defence operate.

"The T'ai Chi Boxing Chronicle is a translation of the text left behind by the Orthodox Masters who developed this system of boxing. Over a period of generations, fives basic movements were developed, called the Bone Marrow Washing Exercises. These exercises helped the monks restore their health and will-power. As the movements were passed down from generation to generation, the meaning behind the movements of Tai Chi was almost completely lost. Due to the integrity of Kuo Lien-Ying, this information is presented without modification or alteration. This book contains a clear explanation of the physical laws of the art of T'ai Chi that hold true wherever it is practiced. The person who studies the information contained in this book will have the tools to achieve the highest level of mastery and skill to be obtained through the practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan." -Guttman

In the volume 1, how to analyze a technique and three methods of study are discussed. They are the method of analysis, the method of practice and the method of technique. Five popular styles are studied as examples. They include Tai Chi, Ba Gua, Tong Bei, Ba Ji and Qin Na Shu (Iron Claw). In the present book, how to generate, transfer and express the power in a move and a posture is elucidated. We may practice the move and posture for a long time. However, if we do not know and practice how to generate power, the move is not effective and loses its purpose. How to listen to, interact with and absorb the opponents power is also explained in Part I. Some characteristic powers in Xing Yi Quan, Tai Chi Quan, Ba Gua Zhang, Ba Ji Quan and Tong Bei Quan are discussed in Part II. Each style focuses on a certain repertoire of powers to solve the fighting problems. Each has its unique way of developing these signature powers. Where the power is coming from, how to transfer the power within the body, and how to express the power are explained. For people that are practicing these styles, the information is very important to know. For people that are interested in knowing how everything works in a move or posture, this is a book that explains it. In actuality, the characteristic power is the primary consideration, and the move and posture is then designed for developing and expression of the power. In Part III, some general ways of developing power are discussed. How to do relaxation exercise before and after practice, how to practice standing postures, how to use equipments to develop powers, and how to train with a partner safely are discussed. This book reveals to you why and how the moves and postures are the way they are. This book also gives you some idea of training and developing the power specific for the purpose of fighting.

Fighting arts are as old as man himself and as varied as his languages. In Asia they developed to a degree of effectiveness probably unsurpassed elsewhere in the world. This book explains the relationships between fighting arts, assesses their strengths and weaknesses, and presents new material about hitherto unknown fighting methods. Written by two of the best-known and most widely published authorities in the field, it covers fighting methods and techniques found in eleven Asian countries-fighting techniques that range from the artful Chinese tai-chi and Burmese bando to Japanese jujutsu and the lethal pentjak-silat of Indonesia. Documentation of these has been supplemented with a wealth of fascinating anecdotes. The reader learns of the daring exploits of the Japanese ninja, of Gama, perhaps the greatest of the great Indian wrestlers, of the Indonesian "trance" fighters-and hundreds of other tales that serve to illustrate some of the most deadly fighting systems that the world has known. The volume is illustrated with over two hundred photographs and drawings, many of them depicting combat styles and techniques that have never been seen in the West.
