Wing Chun Wisdom

By alan

Wing Chun Wisdom: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants. An exiting new book by Alan Gibson due out in November 2020.

The title is a tribute to the masters who have gone before and also references Isaac Newton’s laws of movement. The writing and photography is complete. The book is around 19200 words and will be heavily illustrated, as Alan’s other books have been. It will be published November 2020, oven ready for Xmas. An analysis of the relationship between common Wing Chun maxims and scientific principles, highlighting the science behind the skills. Also discussing how these ideas can be integrated and assimilated as effective attributes through the lens of modern coaching principles. It is a ground-breaking collision of ancient wisdom and modern coaching. #wingchunwisdom
