The Effortless Power of Kung Fu




“Every martial artist should read this book.”
A comprehensive guide to the Chinese art of kung fu including background, principles, history, training methods, tactics, techniques, forms, sparring and more.
This well-written book guides you through everything you need to know.

Why forms are still the best way to learn – as long as they’re taught properly, why sparring is an essential, but often missing part of most kung fu teachings through the fascinating history of kung fu and then on to how to find a good teacher.

This book gives an excellent grounding in stances, effective punches, kicks, throws and so on. You learn amazing skills like how to stand so that you can’t be moved with just a few moments practice. It gives tactics in how to deal both physically and mentally with real street violence. This includes how to deal with kick boxer type attacks, grapplers and even multiple attackers.

We live in a world where kung fu is increasingly being seen as not offering realistic combat skills. This book shows that this is not the case. Kung fu, when it is taught and trained properly, offers the most comprehensive training in skills for both for combat and for life.

“I have never met or trained with Paul Chapman before, but upon reading this book I see many similarities in the way we teach and train, so I hope we will cross paths soon. I find the book very informative and down to earth, it’s a really good look at what is Kung Fu and why should we do it” Eli Montaigue – Head of the World Taiji Boxing Association and named successor to the Erle Montaigue System
