Recommends it for: Advance students of Chinese martial arts
This book is an excellent reference guide...if you already have a "strong grasp" (I couldn't resist) of Kung Fu and Chin Na principles. That said, I wouldn't expect the novice to learn Chin Na from this book. As it states in the title, it is for instructors. However, it is also full of useful exercises and it does attempt to fully explain movements. There just is no substitute for seeing it in motion and trying it yourself.

The Shaolin Chin Na Instructors manual that pairs nicely with Shaolin Chin Na by Yang Jwing-Ming (the same instructor/author. Invaluable material for practitioners and people interested in China Na in general.

The workouts at the end are awesome!

The recipes in handwritten Chinese might be cool. I don't know. I can't Mandarin?
