Editorial Reviews:

Cheung is one of the world's leading authorities on wing chun (along with classmate Bruce Lee, a principal of Yip Man's legacy). This book covers stances and footwork, the chum kil forms, chi sao drills and applications. Fully illustrated.

Summary: Excellent Reference book!
Comment: If your already a wing chun enthusiast, you will appreciate this book provided that your not a small, closed minded, slandering, negative self-promoting a*s like Leung Ting and his students who take every possible opportunity like this book review, that has nothing to do with "Boztepe" or "Leung Thing", and use it to show just how infantile and petty they truly are in their relentless use of twisted half truth (EDITED!) smear campaign against Cheung. Surely this book will not show you how to fight or more importantly the intricate details of the art itself. This Book or any other is not a subtitute for an actual instructor, nor does it claim to be, but it is an excellent REFERENCE manual for those that are already in the system (Beginner, Intermediate, or advance) learning from a qualified instructor!

As for Ving Tsung people, grow up! Your sending a bad message to would be wing chungers and Ving Tsungers alike. It hurts us all in the end. Peace be with you!

Summary: Ignorant bliss
Comment: I agree. I have trained under Dana and Chueng and I was appalled when I read that person's degrading comments.

There is always a rotten apple, it is unfortunate...

Summary: Excellent book in TWC
Comment: If you are a student of TWC (Cheung's Wing Chun) This book is highly recommended. It reinforced what you have learned in Class and provides a handy reference.

Summary: Excellent Reference and Learning Resource!!!
Comment: As an instructor of William Cheung's art of Traditional Wing Chun, I find this book to be a useful resource tool for all my students. In fact, it is required reading material. Although it is difficult to learn any martial art solely from books and tapes, such tools are indispensable in both documenting the unique qualities of a particular style and providing specific techniques and sequences for training purposes. Advanced Wing Chun presents for the first time in print the Cham Kil, or Chum Kiu, intermediate form as passed down from 5th Generation Grandmaster Leung Jun to William Cheung via Leung Bik and Yip Man. Other useful sections include various single-handed and double-handed Chi Sau techniques and drills as well as sections on this lineage's unique footwork and combat techniques. This book is a MUST for all Wing Chun enthusiasts of any family line!

Summary: Some might find it useful
Comment: The "truth" about William Cheung is probably somewhere in the middle, between Boztepe's rabid rant and others' overstated praise. I read this book after just a few months of studying Wing Chun, and personally found his photos and descriptions impossible to follow. For one thing, your Sifu will probably teach at least a slight variation from Cheung's chum kil; Cheung's claim that his version is exactly as taught by Yip Man is probably false. Any Sifu worth his salt will provide his own unique interpretation of each form. Second, unless you already know Wing Chun maneuvers inside and out, it is impossible to learn a three-dimensional form from a two-dimensional sequence of pictures. As the title suggests, this book is probably best for advanced students who wish to compare their own techniques with another's.

One thing Boztepe has right is that Cheung's claims of being the sole successor to Yip Man are a crock. Many masters claim that, and none of them are correct. Can't they all just get along?
