I recognize that I would not have been able to attempt this work without theuntiring support and assistance from many of my friends and students. I specificallyappreciate the dedicated effort of Timothy Jeffcoat, who has contributed to this work incountless ways. It was Tim who first suggested I undertake this effort, and he has addedmuch to its completion through his dedicated commitment. I would also like to recognizethe support from Erle Montaigue, who has encouraged my efforts, allowed me to usesome of his illustrations, and added the forward which introduces this work. Hisgenerosity and depth of knowledge of internal kung fu has been invaluable. In addition Iwould like to thank the many students and fellow martial artists I have been privileged towork with throughout the years. All have contributed to my understanding in countlessways. Finally I would like to recognize my first Wing Chun teachers, Si-Fu Peter Yu andMaster Tam Hung Fun, whose dedicated teaching set me on the path that has lead to theknowledge and understanding within these pages. There have been many other teacher throughout the years, each has contributed to my understanding and skills in a variety of ways, but perhaps the most significant has been Master David Nuuhiwa (Uncle David)whose mastery of the finer points was willingly and unselfishly shared with me.
