Jon Rister - Wing Chun Strategy and Tactics: Attack, Attack, Attack Jon Rister - Filipino Martial Arts Strategy and Tactics Jon Rister - Close Combat Strategy and Tactics: Prevent, Confront, Prevail
In Wing Chung Strategy and Tactics, author Jon Rister and co-author Alfred Huang explores the strategy and tactics behind this concept-based Chinese martial art and form of self-defense that utilizes both striking and grappling while it specializes in close-range combat. This work is aimed at both students seeking to gain a deeper understanding on the fundamentals of Filipino Martial Arts, and teachers looking for an alternate perspective on how to teach their tactics and techniques to their learners. The style utilized in this book is the Inosanto Blend, formulated by Magulang Na Guro Dan Inosanto, which itself draws from the Lacoste system, Villabrille, Ilustrisimo, and Balintawak Eskrima. It comprehensively covers the essentials of Filipino Martial Arts, the training methods, double stick and single stick techniques and their strikes, disarms and locks, as well as defenses against knife-wielding attackers. The text also comes with detailed illustrations to elucidate the forms and motions of Filipino Martial Arts, giving readers a better understanding of the combat techniques being discussed. Some people pursue martial arts for recreation. Others are mainly academically or intellectually interested in its history and culture. Then there are those who are simply afraid. They study and practice martial arts out of a genuine need to protect themselves from dangerous people and situations... this is for them.

After several years of study he approached Sifu Fong about teaching Wing Chun from a classical standpoint, and received permission and started teaching. After years of teaching researching and special instructor training under Sifu Francis Fong and Sifu Dan Inosanto, Sifu Jon started to see something very special about Wing Chun that goes mostly un-noticed,or at least not openly discussed, and so decided to write this book and two others not yet out in the public. "Wing Chun Strategy and Tactics Attack Attack Attack" and "Wing Chun Strategy and Tactics Strike Control Break" then "Combat Wing Chun in 100" days. A fourth book will be coming as well about Bui Gee and Muk Yan.

Sifu Jon Rister has a school in Texas and two in Finland, Helsinki and Oulu. where he travels every year to update his instructors there. Sifu Fong even visits once per year as well.
