Great book. It goes out of stock then comes back. Keep checking.
One of the interesting things to do is to read various Chinese works on internal strength and jins. many of the topics are hotly debated. This should speak to some of you who bought into a certain persons oft repeated notion that they supposedly all agreed on this stuff. Thats was pure B.S. from the get go.
One interesting tidbit is the popular concept of Peng jin as the one jin. Hong states along with two others under Chen Fake that Fake believed that chansi jin was the one jin as it contained within the dual spirals- all jins- in one movement. Whereas with the other jins they would each have peng within them. With due consideraton Liu ChenDe, and Li ChuGong show and explain the logic behind chansi jin as the one jin and Chenzhonghua does not. CZH is clearly not of the calibur of LCD or LCG in his movements either.
At any rate that book was an interesting read with its quoting of Chen Xin's book and HJS's outlining where Chen Fake agreed/disagreed with Chen Xin and where HJS agreed/disagreed with both through his own development and insights.
I offer no opinion on any of it.
