As mentioned before in my previous book, "Modern Kung Fu Kar­ate", that the Brick Breaking and Iron Hand Training is not a neces­sary part of Gung Fu training - this book deals strictly with self defense.

Unlike my previous books on Gung Fu, writ­ten by one of limited knowledge, I was very happy when Mr. Bruce Lee was persuaded to come out with this, his first of a series of books on the Ancient Art of Gung Fu.

Bruce Lee, one of the highest authorities in the Chinese Art of Gung Fu in the United States today, came from China three years ago. At an early age, Mr. Lee started Gung Fu training from various instructors from both Northern and Southern schools of Gung Fu. At thirteen, he met Master Yip Man, leader of the Wing Chung School of Gung Fu, and since then he has devoted himself to that system. After years of daily training and engagements in competitive matches, he was awarded the rank of instruc­tor - the youngest to achieve it in that school. Since his arrival in the United States, Mr. Lee has selected a few disciples and devoted his time to teaching them. Among his many followers are Judo and Karate Black Belt hold­ers, Gung Fu students of other systems, box­ers, etc.

Several Important Pointers

  1. Every movement of Gung Fu has a flowing
    continuity without any dislocation. As soon as a
    movement is completed, it begins to flow into
    another one. Because of this the readers will
    find the techniques of Gung Fu faster than the
    ordinary method.

  2. Gung Fu is a mind exercise. The com­
    bination of mind and body is especially impor­
    tant in the higher stage of Gung Fu, As for the
    reader here, try to use the imagination (mental
    movement) to influence every physical movement;
    for example, a firm belief that every technique
    will come to the desired end would help.

  3. Cooperate with your opponent. Do not resist or interrupt his flow of movement. Instead
    of stopping his force, complete it by following
    him. In other words, you help him to destroy
    himself. Remember this - what you will do depends on your opponent; that is why we say - be
    the complement and not the opposite of the
    opponent's force.

  4. The waist is very important in the art of
    Gang Fu, as it plays a major part in both strik­
    ing and dissolving away the opponent's force.
    During practice, the practitioner is required to
    dissolve away the opponent's force by turning
    waist first before he can side step it, (Note; A
    white arrow will show the direction of turning of
    the waist in the illustration.

  5. Remember - it is better to learn how to
    endure than to learn how to fight. However, if
    you are compelled to oppose force, make use of

Gung Fu has many stances for different pur­poses, and some other schools have their own special stances. Here are the ten most common­ly used stances for the beginners.

1 - Ma Bo (

- The thighs must be para­llel, the toes point front, and the knees point at the toes. The nearer the. dis­tance of the feet, the better. Points to Avoid - Standing bow-legged or leaning forward or backward.

Page 9

leg with toes pointed slightly inward (avoid being stepped on); the back leg straight. (This is why this is some­times called the bow's arrow stance. This stance and Ma Bo (horse stance) are strong and firm stances. Points to Avoid - Lifting the heel up on back foot, or pointing toes straight front on the front foot.

Page 10

the back leg, the front leg stands with toe pointing (ready to kick any time). The front knee is slightly higher than the back one for protection of the private part.

Points to Avoid - Weight on front leg, toes not pointing straight.

Page 11

4 - Hui Во

- A slight variation of Ding Bo, except with front toes turned slightly inward. Points to Avoid - Weight on front foot.

Page 12

- This is a medium stance between ма Во and Hui Bo, and is mostly used in free-style sparring, due to its flexibility, The front knee is slightly higher than the rear one.

Weight on back leg, the

front leg rests lightly on heel with toes pointing upward. This is mostly used with Gung Bo for dissolving away force. The waist plays a very important part in this stance. Both knees try to be parallel.

7 - Lau Ma

- The twisting horse. The front foot flat on ground with the back heel raised. This stance is used mostly in close-range for moving with the shortest time.

Page 15

- The weight is on the front
8 - Kuai Ma

kneeing leg. This stance is used most­ly for the attack to the low gate.

Page 16

Aside from his knowledge of the various schools of Gung Fu, Mr. Lee is also well versed in Taoism and Ch'an (Zen). He has con­ducted a T. V. series in the U.S. on Oriental philosophy and Gung Fu.

Mr. Lee will be one who will bring credit to the ancient and noble art of Chinese Gung Fu by his sincere effort to present a true perspective of the art of Chinese self defense.

I was really impressed when in friendly spar­ring matches with Mr. Bruce Lee, I couldn't penetrate or land a telling blow or kick - even when he was blindfolded, once his hands are "sticking" to mine.

1 am sure this book will bring to the citizens of the U. S. a better understanding of the prin­ciples which make Gung Fu such and effective system in defense. Students of other Oriental systems will benefit greatly from this book. In well illustrated photos, it clearly explains all the steps to master the various techniques.

Oscar Wilde once said, "Imitation is the most sincere compliment. " If so, I have paid Mr. Bruce Lee a sincere compliment by chang­ing all my Gung Fu techniques to his methods. When he demonstrated his type of striking, which is based on inner energy, I found it much more powerful than the power I had developed from previous Iron Hand training. The super­iority of his Gung Fu is more refined and effec­tive than that which I have learned in all my past years. Since his striking power is gener­ated from the waist and the mind, I have always maintained that the power to break bricks is not the true test of actual application of energy in real combat.

I always benefit greatly whenever we get a chance to train together.

9 - Tou Bo

- This stance in English

means to steal a step, to sneak in to attack. From this stance one can either kick or change it to many other stances like Ma Bo, Ding Bo, Gung Bo, etc.

Page 18

- Tu Ma (

- In English, hanging horse, this stance is for defense against foot sweeps, low kicks, weapon attacks, etc. From this position, a kick is often connected.

The waist plays a vital role in the art of Gung Fu. Here are some exercises to extend the range of its motion and make the waist flex­ible.

Fig. 1 - Front Bend

(1) Bend forward with palms touching ground, (2) legs keep straight at all times.

Fig. 2

  1. Bend forward and grasp both ankles and
    touch head on the knees.

  2. Later on the head should touch the shin
    or, even better, the instep.

Fig. 3 - Side Bend

  1. Body turn left and bend down without
    moving the lower trunk,

  2. Touch palms on ground,

  3. Come up and repeat the same to the
    right side.

Fig, 4 to Fig. 6 - Back Bend

Figures 4 to 6 show the steps toward back bending,

Fig. 6

Stand with feet together, hand naturally-raised, body twisted toward left side (Fig. 6a); (2) The body turns from left toward right (Fig. 6b); (3) Right hand turns to a hook and left hand, following the turning of the waist, drops down and grasps right ankle (Fig. 6c); (4) Left hand releases and turn body from right to left again.

Page 22

Page 23

Fig. 7

  1. From the standing position the body drops
    toward the right side with right foot crossing in
    front of left foot {Fig, 7a);

  2. Body turns backward with left foot grind­
    ing the ground, and right foot slightly touching
    ground (Fig. 7b);

  3. After turning left foot bends slightly on
    the knee.

Fig. 8

  1. Assume squatting position as in Fig. 8a
    with left foot in front; the chest is close to the

  2. Body turns toward right back with hand
    following (Fig, 8b).

  3. After turning the waist, the right leg
    should be in front as in Fig. 8b, dotted lines.

  4. Ready for left turning.

The kick, especially to the Northern clans of Gung Fu, is a best means of attack; however, they too warn the danger of using them reckless­ly. It is a fact that the legs are much more powerful and have a longer reach than the hands, but we must consider also that when we lift one leg and kick, our whole balance is involved.

"In training, kick as high as you can; but in combat, kick as fast as you can and don't pass over the belt." This is a saying I often teach to my students. In my school, our kicks seldom pass over the belt, and the so called high or flying kicks are never used. As for leg training, and this is true in most of the Gung Fu schools (North or South), it is not necessary for us to strengthen and toughen it by kicking on hard ob­jects or sandbags. Due. to their support of the whole body everyday, our legs already have power, and it is a matter oЈ cultivating them naturally. The training then involves the cul­tivating and concentrating of power, and the development of speed.

Here I have included a few basic exercises that serve to develop the kicking; the first part of which will concentrate on stretching the liga­ments and extending the range of motion. The second part will be the natural development of kicking power.

Fig. 1 (Front Bend)

Assume the position in Fig. 1 with hands on right knee to prevent It from bending. With the toes raised, try to touch the knee with your head. Repeat 15 times on each leg.

Page 26

Fig. 2 (Side Bend)

Assume position in Fig. 2 with hand on hip. With toes raised, bend sideways and touch the right foot with your head.

Fig. ЗА - This exercise is commonly called shoe kissing. (1) Assume a squatting posi­tion with left leg extending straight, toes raised and the heel touching the ground, (2) with two hands grasping left foot and pulling backward, bend forward and kiss the shoe (fig. 3B). Practice left and right. NOTE: At first, practice by touching the head on knees, then reach farther and farther out.

Page 27

At present Mr. Lee, through his books, T. V. appearances and Gung Fu instructions to Amer­icans, regardless of race, creed or national origin, is in the process of developing a nucleus of future Gung Fu instructors to keep the ancient Chinese art from being exploited and commer­cialized аs evidenced unfortunately in some other Oriental systems.

I am in complete accord with the author when he says, "When more and more Americans are instructed in the authentic techniques of Gung Fu, less and less people will be able to pass themselves off as self styled Gung Fu "experts".

Page 28

Fig. 4 A- Assume same position/ but this time bend over and try to touch shoe with the head. (This time the right side of the body touches the left leg.) Repeat 12-20 times and do the same with right leg.

Fig. 5 & Fig, 6

Fig, 5 and Fig. 6 show a slight but more difficult exercise of leg training.

Fig. 7A- Side Hang. This exercise is known as

leg hanging in Chinese because when the leg is raised to the desired position, it has to stop there for as long as one can. (1) Assume position A in Fig. 7A with right hand on a bar, (2) Slowly lift left

Fig. 7B- leg (with toes raised) to around 90° from the ground and stay there for a while, (3) Lower down to original position and repeat the same procedure again.

Page 29

Fig, 8A- Straight Hang.

(1) Assume original position, (2) This time, instead of raising the leg side­ways, raise it slowly straight up (toe

Fig. 8Б- raised) till it reaches at least 90° from ground, (3) Stay there for a while and repeat again.

Fig. 9 - This is front high kick for practising purposes only. (1) With hands on hips advance right foot with left foot behind it, (2) Left foot kick up straight with toes raised aiming at one's forehead. (3) When left foot comes down next to right foot, stop and advance left foot with right foot behind, ready to kick, NOTE: (1) During kicking the waist should not bend, and do not lean forward too much.

  1. The body should not bend

  2. The stationary foot should
    be firmly flat on the ground.

Page 30

Fig. 10 - Side Slanting Kick

  1. Assume same position as in Fig. 9
    and kick with left leg the same way
    except to the side of right ear.

  2. The hand extending position is for
    balancing the posture of the body.

Fig. 11 - Side Straight Kick

  1. From erect position advance right
    foot with toes slightly pointing to the
    right side; body also turned toward
    right side as shown in Fig, 11.

  2. Left foot kick toward left ear,

  3. Left foot lands on ground with toes
    pointing slightly toward left side and
    body turning left side. (4) Kick in the
    same manner.

Figs. 12, 13, 14

{1) Fig. 12 and Fig. 14 show the exer­cise of leg swinging of out and inward swing. Practise with left and right. (2) Fig. 13 shows the correct posture while swinging the leg.

Fig, 15- This is the actual kicking as used in actual application. Here I have just included three basic kicks in Gung Fu, the straight-toe and thrust kick, and the side kick.

(1) Assume position in Fig. 15 with body erect, (2) Advance right foot and snap out left foot like a whip with all the power concentrating on impact, (3)Snap back as fast as possible and land in front of right foot, (4) In the same manner the right foot snaps out.
