Reviews for Sugong
A terrific read!
I found this book to be an excellent read. It depicts the trials and tribulations of a Kung Fu grand master and the author's experiences from training with him.
Sugong has lived an incredible life, from run-ins with various shady parts of the underworld to setting up businesses, but most of all his dedication to his art. Nick interspices accounts of Sugong's life story with anecdotal stories of his own time training with him, which can be highly amusing.
Well written and very interesting, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in martial arts, but I also think that anyone with an interest in the East and their culture over the ages would find this a good read as well.
I finished the book in 3 days, it had me riveted! by Rob Veling
