This dual language Chinese/English edition is beautifully designed.
This series has an introductory calligraphic introduction by Yang Zhao Ting, the former president of the National Chinese WuShu Association. The writer of the series, Geng Jun, studied under SuXi, SuFa and Li ZhuanYuan. There are general notes and demonstrations of the Shaolin stances for the entire series. There's also a nice short color section on students and Geng Jun's activities. The side-by-side Chinese and English make this a very useful text with clear instructions.
THIS BOOK is the first road of the series said to be created by SuFu. The inspiration for this series was a number of monks who had left the Temple not fully trained and therefore brought shame to Shaolin. 13 "toll gates" were then created guarded by master monks who would challenge anyone wanting to leave and thereby insure a high standard of skill. Form only.
