Book excerpt: This new edition of Bruce Lee's classic work rejuvenates the authority, insight, and charm of the master's original 1963 publication for modern audiences. It seemlessly brings together Lee's original language, descriptions and demonstrations with new material for readers, martial arts enthusiasts and collectors that want Lee in his purest form. This timeless work preserves the integrity of Lee's hand-drawn diagrams and captioned photo sequences in which he demonstrates a variety of training exercises and fighting techniques, ranging from gung fu stances and leg training to single- and multiple-opponent scenarios. Thought-provoking essays on the history of gung fu, the theory of yin and yang, and personal, first-edition testimonials by James Y. Lee, the legendary Ed Parker, and jujutsu icon Wally Jay round out this one and only book by Lee on the Chinese martial arts. -- from back cover.
