ABOUT THE BOOK

This book unravels the mystery behind Chinese martial arts, or wushu, an exotic branch of traditional Chinese culture. It traces how the rough and ready brawls of Chinese cavemen matured into the polished gongfu of Shaolin and Wudang warriors. But the art of gongfu is more than just martial abilities - it is also about a philosophy and chivalry code. This volume sheds light on the legend of Bruce Lee and the Yue Maiden Sword.
