1.0 out of 5 stars Lots of photos, little substance Oct. 19 2003
This is one of the few books I've been able to find on CLF, and found it incredably lacking. If it weren't for two forms presented inside the book, it would be little more than a pamphlet. The reader gets an introduction into Choy Li Fut, but not enough to really learn anything. Liniage is presented, weapons used are named, and you get to see a couple of poorly-shot photos of finnished techniques. I don't really recomend that anyone get this book, unless you want to learn CLF's first two forms and have no teacher.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacks detail and explanation March 11 2002
By A Customer
This is an OK book on choy li fut gung fu by the grandmaster of this style. Yes, its impossible to become a gung fu master without a teacher, training and effort. However I expected far more from this book than what it delivers. Its so so on basics and concepts but lacks critical details on how to do footwork, punches and kicks as well as no form or technique instruction on the huge arsenal of choy li fut weapons such as the plum blosson spear and kwan do. For a better gung fu book, check out Bruce Lee's books on JKD as well as the Hung Gar Kung Fu books by Bucksam Kong. The photos in this Choy Li Fut book are difficult at best to follow. I just hope that grandmaster Doc Fai-Wong rewrites and updates this book to make it worthy.

I think this book gives a good introduction to CLF and it's basic s but if you as me study the chans family style, I suggest you don't buy the book! I bought it and found out that many of the movements we practice are not the same as the ones in this book! This can confuse both you and your sifu! For example the basic movement Ng Lun Ma that we practice is not the same as the one in the book at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars For the practicing student May 27 2000
By Elle
This book is very good for the practicing choy li fut student. It will help you memorize the names of each move and their order. It also gives a good background to the school/study. I would not recommend it for an individual who is not already enrolled in choy li fut. It is a class supplement, not to be used without the help of a teacher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro Oct. 29 1999
By A Customer
This serves as a good intro to the art. It does an excellent job at inspiring one to undertake the study for CLF, as it has for me. I must say though that the movements are barely described. You'd have to have prior experience in Kung Fu to have any idea what they are talking about. Does anyone know of any authentic CLF schools in New York?
