Wing Chun Kung Fu Weapons and Advanced Techniques A Complete Guide by Joseph Wayne Smith

This guide introduces the wooden dummy, a valuable tool for developing trapping, striking, and kicking skills; butterfly knives, deadly blades for both attack and defence; and the six-and-a-half pole, a simple but devastating weapon in the hands of the Wing Chun fighter. The author stresses the need to keep the mind open to new possibilities, while at the same time preserving the valuable inheritance of classical Wing Chun.
