Art of Chinese Kung Fu, The
(50 items available)
Spiritual, moral, philosophical, and of course martial elements are at the heart of the Kung Fu practice. The Art of Chinese Kung Fu explores these core tenets. The first section of the book is concerned with aesthetic manifestations, from photography to modern popular culture. Kung Fu's most famous practitioners, including Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan, and seminal movies like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and "Kill Bill" are featured prominently. The latter section of the book digs deeper into the history and lore of the practice in remote parts of China, in the temples and cities where it now flourishes. The philosophical beliefs behind the practice and the important tenets of harmony and inclusiveness, are presented faithfully.
