Bruce Lee The Tao of Gung Fu: A Study in the Way of Chinese Martial Art (Bruce Lee Library Book 2) Kindle Edition
Bruce Lee totally revolutionized the practice of martial arts and brought them into the modern world—by promoting the idea that students have the right to pick and choose those techniques and training regimens which suit their own personal needs and fighting styles. He developed a new style of his own called Jeet Kune Do—combining many elements from different masters and different traditions. This was considered heretical at the time within martial arts circles, where one was expected to study with only a single master—and Lee was the first martial artist to attempt this. Today he is revered as the "father" of martial arts practice around the world—including Mixed Martial Arts.
In addition to presenting the fundamental techniques, mindset and training methods of traditional Chinese martial arts, this martial art treatise explores such esoteric topics as Taoism and Zen as applied to Gung Fu, Eastern and Western fitness regimens and self-defense techniques. Also included is a Gung Fu "scrapbook" of Bruce Lee's own personal anecdotes regarding the history and traditions of the martial arts of China. After Lee's death, his manuscript was completed and edited by martial arts expert John Little in cooperation with the Bruce Lee Estate. This book features an introduction by his wife, Linda Lee Cadwell and a foreword from his close friend and student, Taky Kimura.
This Bruce Lee Book is part of the Bruce Lee Library which also features:
- Bruce Lee: Striking Thoughts
- Bruce Lee: The Celebrated Life of the Golden Dragon
- Bruce Lee: Artist of Life
- Bruce Lee: Letters of the Dragon
- Bruce Lee: The Art of Expressing the Human Body
- Bruce Lee: Jeet Kune Do
"A book like this is a perfect place for fans of Lee to start to reach an understanding of the man and his philosophies on the martial arts and life itself. It all began here in some ways, so consider this book the perfect launching pad for someone that wants to discover more about Bruce's contributions to the martial arts world besides his movies." —Fight Nerd blog
"…Bruce Lee books are now also available in ebook format…That's great, it's nice if you're traveling to take everything with you in one little small container so-to-speak." —Martial Thoughts Podcast
"The Bruce Lee Library stands as the definitive presentation of Bruce Lee's magnificent legacy. Each volume belongs on the bookshelf of every serious martial artist." —Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Nucleus
"Technical yet poetic, The Tao of Gung Fu: A Study in the Way of Chinese Martial Art includes over 100 photos and line drawings as Lee explains his holistic approach. It was left unfinished at his death." —Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
