ABOUT THIS VIDEO: This book was co-written by the gentleman who taught Sifu Jason Korol of the Greenville Academy of Martial Arts (Tony Massengill, not Sam Kwok). Having never seen any footage of him or read any of his work, I wanted to give this book a spin to check him out.
I was not disappointed. This is a thick, thorough exploration of the basics of Wing Chun. It explores four out of the six Wing Chun forms, delves into the history of Wing Chun, and explains a concept known as "faan sao."
To be honest, I wish the history section had been shorter, and faan sao had been longer. Other than that, this is another solid book to introduce yourself to Wing Chun, or to gain some new insights if you are a "veteran."
