Chu Shong Tin - 2011 Nim Tao and Life Chinese DVD (with English Translation) - RARE Wing Chun Video! Alan Orr - The Structure of Wing Chun: Awakening Force Flow - Book (Color) Alan Orr - The Structure of Wing Chun: Awakening Force Flow - Book (Black and White)
RARE! Limited Numbers! Master Chu's 2011 DVD with English Translation. This is a documentary tracing the Wing Chun path that Master Chu has trodden, including his unintended encounter with Wing Chun, and his journey in devoting himself to Wing Chun and regarding it as a life-long vision... Books on Ip Man’s famous Wing Chun system are plentiful, yet focus mainly on the choreography and applications of the forms. Yet, to master Wing Chun one must develop mastery of internal body structure, energy generation, and proper force issuance in his own movements and especially when controlling an aggressive opponent. In The Structure of Wing Chun Kuen, Alan Orr teaches this very method in great detail.

Leung Ting - Wing Tsun DVD - Correct or Incorrect (Right, Wrong, and Why) Bundle - Moy Yat - Wing Chun Collection 1 Jun Qiu, Jose Ma Prat, Francisco Perera - The Last Wing Chun of Leung Jan, Ku Lo Pin San Wing Chun
Leung Ting is one of the most prominent and well-known teachers who was trained by Yip Man. In this work Master Leung Ting questions the principles, strategies and tactics that make Wing Tsun such a highly efficient system. Get all the Moy Yat Wing Chun DVDs at a super price. Collect the entire series and gain the wisdom of the late Wing Chun GrandMaster. Please see the individual DVDs for more info and sample clips. After exhaustive research, this book presents one of the most secretive families of Wing Chun. Leung Jan was Ip Man's master's master, and the most famous Wing Chun fighter in history.

The Ku Lo method was the only one that Leung Jan performed until the end of his life. He took all of the techniques that he had been employing during his life and built Pin San Wing Chun from them It is like the author calls "concentrated coffee". He put together all the experience he had gathered in his entire life - all the techniques he employed and made him a winner - to set up the ultimate synthesis. As a example, the pole form is 3 /12 movements, not the 6 1/2 commonly taught.

The book itself is an interview (a very long and interesting one) followed by some forms and techniques to give the idea behind the system. It is an interesting read. Learn more about Ip Man's Grandmaster's ultimate style!
