Distilling the martial art known in the West as kung fu, Robert Smith presents Chinese boxing (ch& #8217; uan shu) as an art & #8220; that combines the hardness of a wall and the softness of a butterfly& #8217; s wings.& #8221; His lively, pragmatic account conveys the discipline and insights acquired in ten years of study and travel in Asia. Smith describes his work with t& #8217; ai chi master Cheng Man-ch& #8217; ing, and connects ch& #8217; uan shu with the softer aspects and inner power of that popular practice. Fifty black and white photos illustrate this informative and personal account of the Chinese boxing tradition.
