The Taoist Art of Feng Shou

A detailed and authoritative guide to the Taoist self defence art of Feng Shou Ch'uan Shu or Hand of the Wind kung fu. Chee Soo was teaching Wu Shu or kung fu when T'ai Chi was banned in China, years before Bruce Lee was heard of in the West. In 1970 he was only one of three men outside Beijing qualified to teach Wushu and had 2000 students in Britain. Hand of the Wind style is based on Taoist philosophy and utilizes the dynamic force of Chi or internal energy instead of brute physical strength making it one of the oldest and most effective self-defence styles in existence.
