Heavily-illustrated "Iron Hand" training, focusing on karate and the ability to "break bricks in 100 days" using the hand. This is a rare original publication with the green cover, known as the "Green Book" issued by James Yimm Lee, long deceased. Revised and expanded from the 1957 and 1958 Orange Book. Worth owning for the historical photographs alone, not to mention Kung Fu information from a master teacher. The back cover shows Jasper Cummings, Jack Headrick, and Earl Maddox as well as another shot of Al Novak breaking. The book offers complete instruction on how to break a trick in 100 days with absolutely no superstition and no pretentiousness. It also shows trick methods for demonstrations. According to James Lee's son Greglon Lee, these books were sold in Kung Fu schools and martial arts shops in the Bay Area and also by mail order. James Yinn Lee, known as J. Y. Lee on this volume and as Kien Lee in his earlier edition (the original orange book, called FIGHTING ARTS OF THE ORIENT which he followed with a volume co-authored with his Sil Lum or Shaolin teacher, T. Y. Wong, entitled, CHINESE KARATE KUNG-FU : ORIGINAL SIL LUM SYSTEM before publishing this "green book") introduces which was technically his third published work. He later followed with a second volume to this one, as well as publishing Bruce Lee's, PHILOSOPHICAL ART OF CHINESE GUNG FU. The "green book" also has a number of historic persons and photographs throughout, including a picture and information on Kenpo Man Paul Pung, who was a student of both James Mitose and Mitose's top disciple, Thomas Young (page 101). Also Judo and Jiu Jitsu instructor James Moynihan of Moscow, Idaho (pages 102-104), Kenpo great Ralph Castro who studied under William Chow and Ed Parker (pages 105-108), Ed Parker on page 109, Wally Jay on page 110 and the Island Judo Club on pages 111-113.
