 The Xingyi Boxing Manual: Hebei Style''s Five Princ (View larger image)

The first time being published in English. This treatise was written in China during the 1930s before World War Two shattered the world. A product of generations of bodyguard and mercenary fighting academies, this book recorded the training phrases and poems that guided the students of these fighting schools. The martial art of Xingyi was famous for its clear minded but unstoppable practitioners, many of whom graduated to become leading caravan guards or who entered private security businesses in pre-war China where police services were virtually non-existent. This treatise remains an interesting record and invaluable guide for contemporary practitioners of this traditional martial art.
