The book Eight Pattern Wing Chun was written primarily to organize and to preserve the ideas and concepts the author has learned from his masters, and to integrate new ideas and exercises which were accumulated in many years of teaching, experimenting and researching. Originally, the book was meant as a compendium or reference book for the author's private students, most of whom are Wing Chun teachers themselves. Therefore some of the chapters are targeted at an experienced audience. However, most of the book should also be suitable for beginners. The book contains a complete formal curriculum (forms, sections), dozens of mottoes with interpretations and a deep insight into the theory and strategy of the system.
