Definitely one of the first books every written in English on the art of Chinese wrestling "Shuai Chiao." Weng learned under the "Iron Butterfly" in Taiwan, the famous and undefeated Chang Tung Sheng. His instruction was basically centered around collegiate competition (he has won a number of national competitions). From there he decided ton introduce Shuai Chiao through the educational system. He was the first physical education teacher in Taiwan to get a degree with an emphasis on Shuai Jiao instruction. He has done much to promote the art which, prior to his appearance in the US, was basically relegated to mentions in text books. After introducing the art at collegiate level a text book was needed. This is his text with notable sections on history, photos of Chang, introductions by martial arts professionals, and - of course - illustrations on the throws and training methods of Shuai Chiao. If you want a complete library of the art, this text cannot be missed. Shuai Chiao itself is a complete martial art of self defense. Over 2000 years old, it has gone through various names and shapes. It does contain striking, kicking as well as grappling and throwing moves. But it generally starts with throwing and locking actions, the topics on which this book concentrates.
