Bruce Lee’s Fighting Method: The Complete Edition brings the iconic four-volume Fighting Method series together into one definitive book. As one of the pioneering resources available on Bruce Lee’s jeet kune do, Bruce Lee's Fighting Method: The Complete Edition breathes new life into hallowed pages with digitally remastered photography of Bruce Lee in his prime, a chapter of new insight from former student Ted Wong and an introduction by his daughter, Shannon Lee. Intended as an instructional document to complement Bruce Lee’s Tao of Jeet Kune Do, this restored, expanded and enhanced edition of Fighting Method breathes new life into hallowed pages with digitally remastered photography and a painstakingly refurbished interior design for improved instructional clarity. This elegant hardcover edition preserves the experience, wisdom, interpretation and organization of the series’ original compiler, and Bruce Lee’s close friend, Mito Uyehara. In fact, this official redesign—sanctioned by the Bruce Lee Foundation—features more than 900 Bruce Lee pictures from his personal files. This comprehensive edition continues to embrace all the photographs, illustrations and text from earlier versions of the individual works—Bruce Lee’s Fighting Method Volume 1: Self-Defense Techniques; Volume 2: Basic Training; Volume 3: Skill in Techniques; and Volume 4: Advanced Techniques—it maintains the explanations that give martial artists the tools necessary to take their skills to the next level . . . but with exclusive bonus material. Famed student Ted Wong adds a glimpse of a lifetime’s worth of knowledge to the edition with a new chapter on the Five Ways of Attack. Because he studied with Bruce Lee during the master’s most innovative developments, Ted Wong is an undisputed and contemporary authority on the art of jeet kune do. In addition to this, Bruce Lee’s daughter Shannon Lee helps readers contextualize the work with an analytical introduction. Bruce Lee’s Fighting Method: The Complete Edition passes on the innovations of the 20th century’s most influential fighter, showing readers how to execute advanced jeet kune do techniques and become the ultimate warrior. It is an integral part of the Bruce Lee canon and a necessary addition for all collectors and martial arts enthusiasts alike!
