Our book is finally published! After three years in the making we’re ready to share the news, and ask you to do the same by forwarding this announcement to your contacts, and spreading the news on Facebook and wherever else you can.
The Continuous Steps Form (Lien Bu Chuan) was chosen as one of the required forms to study by the Central Martial Arts Academy in China, which was organized circa 1928. Our book, Essence of Lien Bu Chuan, hand illustrated by Master Nelson Tsou Yen Kai, is a detailed movement by movement study of the form, showing hand and foot motion lines, front, side and overhead views, plus additional interesting details and enhancements. The form study section presents each movement in a two page spread format for ease of understanding.
