About the Book
"Gong Sau Wong: A Tribute" offers you just that!
At a whopping 360 pages, "Gong Sau Wong: A Tribute" is a fascinating and intimate window into the life and legacy of one of Wing Chun’s most legendary teachers, Sifu Wong Shun Leung.
Over the last decade, the public has become more aware of his contribution to Wing Chun and his vital connection to Bruce Lee. Although widely known for his fighting capabilities, earning him the nickname Gong Sau Wong (“King of Talking Hands”), Sifu Wong was a down-to-earth, approachable, warm human being with a tremendous love for life and Wing Chun.
Through a series of exclusive conversations, 25 direct students share anecdotes, reflections, and personal stories about their late teacher, whose influence still resonates in the Wing Chun community today.
Along with Sifu Wong’s eldest son, John Wong Hong Chung, there are a host of his direct students such as Philipp Bayer, Rolf Clausnitzer, Tom Conba, Ernest Höfler, Victor Koo, Gary Lam, Johnny Tam Yuk Lam, Ron Lee, Wan Kam Leung, Lewis Luk, Chan Kim Man, Wu Chun Nam, Philip Ng, Rusper Patel, David Peterson, Clive Potter, Attilio Reale, John Smith, Jack Tsoi, Enzo Verratti, Ivan Wong, Mark Wong, Cliff Au Yeung and Jerry Yeung.
Anyone who loves Sifu Wong Shun Leung and Wing Chun will treasure “Gong Sau Wong: A Tribute”. A masterpiece indeed!
