This book does a great job showing the reader the theories, concepts, and principles that actually make this art work correctly. This is accomplisted using very dynamic photos with line drawings and explinations about each movement. 

This book also describes Bak Mei's 3 external sets and it's 5 internal sets.  It demonstrates the most essential training set of the entire Bak Mei system the: Jik Bo Kuen form. It also includes two person applications on how to apply the Jik Bo Kuen form in practical fighting drills.

This book is a descriptive and organized summary of the Bak Mei system. It is mostly a glossary of the Bak Mei system. It is great for reference and to learn more about the Bak Mei discipline. 

This book is not for directly teaching you the Bak Mei system. This is not a manual in any way, its for the Bak Mei practitioner who wants to study what the art itself. It is a great choice to go along with a more manual-like Bak Mei book to give the practitioner a better idea of the over all picture of the art itself.

This book is the first book in a series. The book addresses Bak Mei with the attempt to widen the knowledge of the system. The key principles such as swallow, spit, and wrap are also touched on in this book.

This book reveals information about various Bak Mei masters and how the system came to be. It reveals alot of information from Thomas Chengs perspective about what it was like to learn this system. This book includes all the applications and form movements for the 18 Rubbing Bridges (Sap Bat Mor Kiu) form.

Bak Mei's style range is very short and its strikes are explosive and fast. It is heavily influenced by Hung-gar elements. It takes the fury of the tiger style, and the percision of the leopard style, along with various other elements from the snake, crane and dragon styles. Fighting consists of alot of deadly close range strikes primarily using the Phoenix-eye Fist technique. Like most short styles there is alot of focus on trapping your opponent's attacks while striking at the same time. Various claw techniques and joint locks are also employed consistently.

Bak Mei's style comes from Pak Mei (also known as Bak Mei). He is believed to be one of the Five Elders Of Shaolin. He is said to have survived the slaughter of the monks and a great fire at Shaolin's main temple at Henan. There are 2 stories about Pak Mei. The first is he was a spy for Shaolin against Qing and the other is that he betray Shaolin to serve the Qing. Either way it is said after he survived the burning of the temple, Pak Mei traveled to Mount Emei.There he would teach his style to Zen master Gwong Wai, who in turn would teach it to Juk Faat Wan. After that, the style was passed down secretly until it was revealed in the 19th century by three masters; Pak Ree Wong, So Qyin Chaun and Lee Fat Chan.

We base all our reviews on the value of the content the book offers. We only choose our top picks after careful and meticulous research. More information about how we choose our top picks can be found here

Dim Mak's style range is short to medium and its strikes are precise and directed at pressure points. Dim mak (also called Death Touch or Touch of Death) center entirely around the idea that the body is covered with pressure points and energy meridians. The art consists of various techniques that target those pressure points and energy meridians to cause varous effects ranging from incapacitation, immediate death or delayed death to an opponent. Less publised is the idea of using these same pressure points and energy meridians for healing purposes. It is believed Dim Mak was developed to be based on acupuncture.

Dim Mak's history is shrouded in mystery. The most common belief of Dim Mak's origin is the idea that the style was invented by the same man who developed the original tai chi form centuries ago. It is believed this art influenced many martial arts that would come after it's creation. It is not uncommon for forms in any martial art to target pressure points to destroy the opponent. However, for obvious reasons alot of the most dangerious techniques were kept secret. It would be a safe assumption to bet that many of the "closed door" disciple techniques across various styles are Dim-Mak related or work at targeting your opponents pressure points and energy meridians.  

This book is the ultimate Dim-Mak book we have come across here at KungFuBooks.net. It includes easy to understand pictures of 12 energy meridians, displays all of the meridians pressure points, and it gives a description of the effect of striking that point.

This book also gives techniques for how to strike pressure points shown by easy to understand photos like its predecessor. It is important to state that the meridians and the pressure points in both books are different. This book basically covers all the various information left out of the first book.It also has extra information such as how to heal with Dim Mak, how medians are connected, and which pressure points to strike in combination to get your desired effects.

This book is the sequel to Dim-Mak: Death-Point Striking. We chose this book for its incredibly detailed content about specifics of how to use Dim Mak properly whether for destroying your opponent or healing purposes.

Jeet Kune Do is considered by most martial artists as a mixed martial art because it was created fairly recently and it combines several different techniques and ideas from other more traditional styles. Jeet Kune Do does not have a set range but instead applys various other styles depending on the situation. It incorperates kicks, punches, grabs, trapping, wrestling, and various other techniques.

This book is compiled from Bruce Lee’s real notes and essays making it an incredible resource for anyone interested Jeet Kune Do. It doesn't get much better then having the creator of the styles actual personal resources when trying to understand the style. Jeet Kune Dos very science and philosophy is explained in detail.

After his death the style was continued by 2 various sects. The original JKD branch claim to teach only what Bruce tought. Taky Kimura, Jerry Poteet, Yap Mat, James Lee, and Ted Wong are some notable teachers of this branch. The JKD concept branch teach the idea individual self expression in order to continue the main philosophy of the art. Dan Inosanto, Richard Bustillo, and Larry Hartsell are some notable teachers of this branch.

Mind and strategy combat in itself is not a "discipline" in the same way that other "martial arts" styles are. However, all fighting whether it be 1v1 or on larger scale involving mass numbers of people, require some form or another of mind and stragey combat. Just to name a few, attributes to mind and stragey based combat would be things likes: planning, tactics, timing, using strengths/weaknesses to your advantage, and making use of the environment. 

This book was written by Sun Tzu over two thousand years ago and serves as a means to conquering your opponent. This book is still studied today by even the most practiced military commanders and martial artists. 

This book lays out various methods to attaining victory in various confrontations. It stresses the use of deception as the means to all victory. However, it should also be noted that Sun Tzu is clearly against war and confrontation to begin with. It teaches that the best strategy is to win without and before conflict. However, if you must engadge in battle then crush your enemy completely. 

 

Mind and strategy combat is probably the oldest form of combat outside of the instinctual mentality of non-rational creators. Man kind has been engadging in mind and stragey based combat not just against one another but also against any obstacle that presents itself. It is safe to say that from the moment the human being has a rational thought on how to achieve something, they are effectively engadging in mind/strategy combat. In the instance of actual combat between people there are methods that have proven more valuable then others. Famous examples of mind and stategy combat experts recognized by society would be Sun Tzu, Nicolo Machiavelli, and Musashi Miyamoto. Countless other great books of mind/strategy combat have come about because of these 3 people and their original works.

This book was written Musashi, who is said to be an undefeated samurai. Even today his legend is portrayed in various works of fiction as Musashi being an undefeatable hero. This book is his manifesto on winning confrontations, as well as swordsmanship and other strategies.

Specifically you will find methods on how to: defeat an oponent, throw them off guard, create confusion, and various other methods to tip the scails of victory in your favor. Musashi understood that any form of combat starts with the mind and went into every fight only after applying his princibles.

This book is written by Nicolo Machiavelli, and unlike Art of War and The Book of Five Rings, The prince focuses on how to maintime a position of power after you attain it. It stresses ruler through fear as a consistent means to maintaining power.

This book has been studied through out history by various rulers and nations and has proven time and time again that the princibles presented in this book hold weight. A must for anyone looking to maintain their position in any fashion.

However, Tai Chi is actually an extreamly sophisticated martial art that utilizes the flow of the fight to gain the advantage over an opponent.

Tai Chi legends state that the theories and practice of Tai Chi were created in the 12th century, by the Taoist monk Zhang Sanfeng. Principles of the style are said to mirror ideas of the Neo-Confucian school of thought that emerged around the same time. However, in actual historical records Zhang Sanfeng and Tai Chi appeared referenced together no earlier than the 19th century bringing doubt to the legend. Records do show that Tai Chi may be based heavily on the Chen family art in which Yang Luchan trained in for 18 years prior to teaching the art in Beijing. The Chen family art is said to be Taiji style heavily influenced by the Taizu changquan style which was practiced at the Shaolin temple.

It is said she denied a warlords marriage offer and said she would only marry him if he could defeat her in a fight. She of course defeated the warlord after she learned how to fight by a Buddhish nun maned Ng Mui who survived the destruction of Shaolin's southern temple.

As real kung fu practitioners, kungfubooks.net highly advises new martial arts students of any kind, to seek a real martial arts school. You should really have a real certified teacher to teach you the art you want to learn. For most people it takes years of learning from others to really grasp how to use their chosen martial art. Of course this is not an iron clad rule, however regardless it would be benificial to even veteran martial artists to have a school and/or teachers, students, or colleges to properly learn from. Martial arts books in general do not include full kung fu systems and for a beginner learning how to properly read the photos and understand the transitions between movements can be tricky. The best thing you can do is choose a discipline you think would fit you, buy a good beginners kung fu book for it, then go to your chosen martial arts school to really learn that art. That way you can really get the proper use out of your chosen kung fu book because you will be capable of understanding what the kung fu book is trying to teach you.

It is not uncommon for martial arts masters, especially with older martial arts books and manuals to present forms and movements slightly different then how they teach them in person. It is also common for kung fu masters to reveal only some applications for a particular movement in their manuals. The main reason for these actions is to protect vital secrets to their styles. So when you learn from a book or manual, real martial arts masters of your chosen style will be able to tell no matter how good you are, that you infact learned from a manual and not another master.  This is commonly known inside the kung fu world. In fact even in the kung fu world this goes even further with open and closed door disciples. Even when you learn in person from a master, only a chosen few will inherit the "closed door" techniques and meanings for those techniques.

How much information does this book this book have on it's discipline?, How difficult is it to properly read and understand this book?, How legit is the information presented?, and finally: What do masters, practitioners, and enthusiasts of this discipline think about this book?
