9780692205419: Chinese Gentle Art Complete: The Bible of Ngo Cho Kun

“I congratulate Sifu Alex Co for translating this rare and important book whose historical significance cannot be overstated. All practitioners of Ngo Cho should have this at their side!” —Grandmaster Benito Tan, Beng Kiam Athletic Association

In Chinese Gentle Art Complete, Alexander Lim Co pours scholarship and more than 50 years’ experience in Ngo Cho into the first-ever illustrated publication, and English-language translation, of this historical book on Fukien Five Ancestor Boxing.

Long held as the "Bible of Ngo Cho Kun,” this treatise on Five Ancestor Fist Kung-Fu has been a treasured keepsake among lineage holders of the style. Originally published in China 1917 by Yu Chiok Sam, one of the "Ngo Cho Ten Tigers," or leading disciples of the art’s founder Chua Giok Beng, the book saw only a limited print run. It has been out of print for over 90 years!

Alexander Co is the Advising Grandmaster of The American Beng Hong Athletic Association. He has served as Chairman of the Philippine-Chinese Beng Kiam Athletic Association and the Tsing Hua Ngo Cho Kung-fu Center and as Vice-chairman of the Hsin-I Society of Internal Arts. In addition to dozens of articles featured in such magazines as “Martial Arts Magazine,” “Rapid Journal,” “Inside Kung-Fu,” “Martial Arts Illustrated” and “Martial Arts Legends.” Grandmaster Co has written three books: “Secrets of Seven Star Praying Mantis,” “The Way of Ngo Cho Kun” and “Five Ancestor Fist Kung-Fu.” He also filmed a series of instructional videos “The Essence of Ngo Cho Kun” and “The Essence of Seven Star Praying Mantis” for Unique Publications Video.
