In the months leading up to his death, Bruce Lee was working on this definitive study of the Chinese martial arts collectively known as Kung Fu or Gung Fu. This book has now been edited and is published here for the first time in its entirety. Bruce Lee totally revolutionized the practice of martial arts and brought them into the modern world by promoting the idea that students have the right to pick and choose those techniques and training regimens which suit their own personal needs and fighting styles. He developed a new style of his own called Jeet Kune Do combining many elements from different masters and different traditions. This was considered heretical at the time within martial arts circles, where one was expected to study with only a single master and Lee was the first martial artist to attempt this. Today he is revered as the "father" of martial arts practice around the world including Mixed Martial Arts. "A book like this is a perfect place for fans of Lee to start to reach an understanding of the man and his philosophies on the martial arts and life itself. It all began here in some ways, so consider this book the perfect launching pad for someone that wants to discover more about Bruce's contributions to the martial arts world besides his movies."-Matthew Kaplowitz, Fight Nerd
