Yet another incarnation—but at least an authorized one—of Lee Ying Arn's classic Kung Fu breakthrough book, "Secrets of Chinese Leg Maneuvers". This book has indeed had a strange life. First Lee published it and it became something of a bestseller being one of the first Kung Fu books ever published in English. Then its Hawaiian publisher actually ripped off their own author and released an unauthorized edition. Now here is a Hong Kong edition from Yin Mei with the photos from the original cut out and pasted up for "clarity", with supplementary information and exercises added. Plum is/was/tries to be one of the last places you can find the original hard bound editions which have been scooped up by collectors. Here, if you just want the information, is a soft bound, less expensive edition which - in accordance with this book's unique lineage - might in itself become a collector's piece. Stranger things have happened in the world of Kung Fu.
This book demonstrates true Northern leg actions with almost no hand manuevers whatsoever. Lee was long-legged and elegant in his movements. Some of this is retained in this edition. Plus you get an en face Chinese/English text.
