Looks at southern Chinese martial arts traditions and how they have become important to local identity and narratives of resistance. This book explores the social history of southern Chinese martial arts and their contemporary importance to local identity and narratives of resistance. Hong Kong’s Bruce Lee ushered the Chinese martial arts onto an international stage in the 1970s. Lee’s teacher, Ip Man, master of Wing Chun Kung Fu, has recently emerged as a highly visible symbol of southern Chinese identity and pride. Benjamin N. Judkins and Jon Nielson examine the emergence of Wing Chun to reveal how this body of social practices developed and why individuals continue to turn to the martial arts as they navigate the challenges of a rapidly evolving environment. After surveying the development of hand combat traditions in Guangdong Province from roughly the start of the nineteenth century until 1949, the authors turn to Wing Chun, noting its development, the changing social attitudes towards this practice over time, and its ultimate emergence as a global art form.

Warrior of Life is a guide to self-transformation written by Charles Householder, a professional speaker and trainer. Householder realized at a very young age that he desperately needed to change his life. Frequently, the target of bullies, this young man also harbored irrational fears of the world around him.

Over the course of twenty years, Householder has trained with various martial arts masters, ninjas, Tibetan lamas, a Native American witch doctor, and many other unique individuals. Currently, a martial arts instructor, Reiki master, licensed skydiver, certified scuba diver, and adventurer, Householder has tested his various skills by competing in endurance events while simultaneously attacking the business world. In Warrior of Life, Householder shares his personal journey and the lessons he learned which can be applied by others desiring to improve and transform their own lives. Using the Asian martial arts systems as a framework, readers will be introduced to esoteric spiritual practices, advanced mind skills and mental techniques, physical health and fitness training, and a philosophy for success based on centuries old warrior principles.

Wing Chun is the most popular form of Chinese Kung Fu in the world today, with over four million practitioners. The art as it is presently understood has been handed down from teacher to student for more than three hundred years. Until now, no one has ever stepped back and taken a critical look at why this art’s techniques are presented and performed the way they are. This book, by Wing Chun master Danny Xuan and martial-arts authority John Little, is the first to decipher these techniques that until now have been encrypted within this art. Xuan and Little reveal how Wing Chun was designed holistically, based on the laws of physics, human nature, and biomechanics. It was also designed with economy, efficiency, and productivity in mind. Unlike other martial arts, Wing Chun doesn’t focus on making a person larger, more rugged, acrobatic or animal-like; rather, it focuses on making optimal use of one’s own bodily structure and power potential by applying the sciences of biomechanics and physics. Thus, it is possible for males and females of all ages and sizes to excel in this art. The Tao of Wing Chun provides a readable, authoritative means of cultivating personal protection skills, enhanced flexibility, improved coordination, greater stamina, and physical and mental fitness while simultaneously cultivating humility, focus, determination, self-confidence, character, camaraderie, and deep inner strength. Foremost, this book offers the reader the means by which to apply Wing Chun principles in daily life. Enhanced by forty-eight full-color illustrations, The Tao of Wing Chun will fascinate, educate, and entertain a wide range of readers—from beginner to master.

We live in a world where bad things happen to good people every day. You can either pretend this injustice does not exist and run the risk of becoming another statistic or you can become as prepared as possible to deal with such a scenario. The topic of self defense is one that deserves a no-nonsense and straightforward approach, and it all begins with the realization and acceptance that the ramifications and effects of any attack or life-threatening scenario you may be placed in one day go much, much further than yourself. The aftermath of an attack can have devastating effects: Children can be left without a parent. Spouses can be widowed. Parents can lose a child. The well-being of all those close to you is at stake should you ever be attacked. Many other books on this subject address the issue of self-defense and personal protection from a purely physical standpoint, when in reality the scope of this topic needs to be broadened considerably. This book does just that by laying out for the reader a simple, practical and effective system of personal protection and self-defense that can be easily learned & utilized by anyone, regardless of age, strength or ability level. In addition, non-physical aspects of self defense such as emotional responses to attacks, the psychological aspect of any self-defense encounter and the body's reaction to perceived threats are covered in great detail. Remember, in any self defense scenario you have only two options: become your attacker's worst nightmare or experience your own. Choose wisely.
