- Jimi K., Portland: An authentic
Reading this book gave me a deep feeling
of what could have been training with ancient master of internal
martial arts. Liu is definitevely passing his knowledge and experience
through this book. Unlike many other books rapidly jumping into
metaphysical considerations, Liu goes right on the point and even
shares some important ideas which make less tangible the real
diffrence between internal and external martial arts. I was just a bit
disappointed by the lack of picture of this great master. But I guess
this was the original Chinese edition which should have included some.
Karl Gomi, New Caledonia: Interesting work
for starters but even more advanced adepts
My bad English,... Good book for the
basic knowledge and the quit egeneral view provided
by undooubtedly a great teacher of Chinese martial arts, I
like the 24 forms this combat aspect give us much
credibility in all techniques traines with the original palm taught in
