Simple Thinking Intelligent Fighters Description

If you enjoyed Alan Gibson’s first book, you will love this one!

This is the exiting sequel to his very popular first tome ‘Why Wing Chun Works’ ("the most comprehensive book available on the subject currently available…"). In Simple Thinking: Intelligent Fighters Alan explains how individual techniques and positions evolve as a result of the underlying Wing Chun concepts, and the forces we are likely to meet in combat.

There is lots of beautiful and detailed photography, and the clearly explained text describes how the fighting applications relate to Wing Chun theory. This book will undoubtedly become an invaluable reference work, both for Wing Chun practitioners and to all other thinking martial artists.

Forewords by Dave Peterson and Clive Potter.

 

'On the Back' of Simple Thinking Intelligent Fighters

In this exciting follow on from his popular first book, Alan Gibson explains how individual techniques evolve as a result of the underlying Wing Chun concepts, and the forces we are likely to meet in combat. Beautifully photographed and clearly explained this book will become an invaluable references work, both for Wing Chun practitioners and to all other thinking martial artists.

Learning Wing Chun is not a process of collecting techniques, it is a process of stripping away the necessary. This can be seen as being like a sculptor, chipping away at the rough stone until the true beauty of form is revealed. if we look purely at the system in terms of rules and simplicity, we will be able to determine the real benefits of doing one thing or another. Through exploring different avenues we will find the shortest route and access our art to the highest level...

"As with the first volume, Why Wing Chun Works II presents clear and precise information that expands on what was presented in his original work, providing the reader with clear guidlines on how to develop the techniques and concepts of the system. Once again, it is written so as to be easy to read and absorb, with illustrations that accurately demonstrate all the drills and concepts described. I thoroughly recommenced this book to all devotees of the Wing Chun system, regardless of lineage or experience, and congratulate Alan on once again producing a book that makes a worthy addition to any martial arts library."

Daivid Peterson, Melbourne Chinese Martial Arts Club and author of the excellent book Look beyond the Pointing Finger, The Combat Philosophy of Wong Sheung Long
