Complete Wing Chun: The Definitive Guide to Wing Chun's History and Traditions
With the fame of Bruce Lee, the conditions in Hong Kong, and the hard work and effort of many of his classmates, the Wing Chun of the late master Yip Man became one of the most well-known and popular Chinese martial arts in the world.
