Summary
This is a book that Bruce Lee began writing in 1964, but never published. While written over 30 years ago, its publication now is truly a landmark event, as it not only offers glimpses into the many martial arts of China but also offers Lee's own interpretations and comments on these arts. Available for the first time, The Tao of Gung Fu includes not only insights into and descriptions of various Chinese martial arts, but Eastern and Western fitness methodologies, the difference between external and internal martial methods, sketches of martial arts and self-defense techniques, a contrast of various gung fu schools in China, Lee's personal scrapbook, and his famous thesis "The Tao of Gung Fu" which he wrote while attending the University of Washington
