One of the best guides to Shaolin Kung Fu in the English language. The author explains and demonstrates the basic and intermediate levels of Shaolin. Suitable excercises to facilitate the techniques are included, and clear drawings and diagrams augment all the methods taught. An overview of Shaolin weapons and their uses round out the work, and intelligent advice on training comes with every page. An excellent index and Chinese calligraphy make this also a work of reference.
