  • Le Wing-Chun est un système martial chinois logique, précis et cohéent, qui a été développé pour répondre au besoin de défense pratique de chacun. C'est un art martial, pour tous et toutes, connu pour son efficacité. William Cheung, ami d'enfance et camarade d'entraînement de Bruce Lee, a été initié très jeune au Wing-Chun. Dans le Hong-Kong de l'après-guerre, c'est dans la rue, face aux gangsters qui pullulaient, qu'il mettait à l'épreuve les techniques apprises dans l'école du grand-maître Yip Man. Il nous livre avec cet ouvrage l'essence de la stratégie de combat du Wing-Chun, les particularités du combat à mains nues, les gardes, les positions, les déplacements, les techniques d'attaque, les mouvements et les techniques de base des bras et des jambes, les coups de pied, les ripostes... ainsi que le récit de son histoire personnelle. Ce livre, simple et complet, illustre´ de nombreuses photos, satisfera particulièrement le pratiquant qui cherche un livre d'apprentissage du kung-fu sérieux.
