- Genre: Sports-Martial Arts
- Release Date: 12/16/2008
Grandmaster William Cheung, the longtime friend and wing chun training partner of Bruce Lee, recalls some of his most dangerous street fights and deconstructs the techniques he used to survive the encounters. In Street Fighting Applications of Wing Chun, Volume 1: Choy LI Fut Challenge, Cheung tells the story of a Hong Kong bare-knuckle rooftop challenge against a choy li fut practitioner in the hot and humid summer of 1956. The fight would raise Cheung's profile to one of prominence should he emerge victorious, and on-hand were friends Bruce Lee and Wong Shun Leung to offer advice and input. The topics covered include fighting strategies, observing one's opponent, the differences between choy li fut and wing chun, controlling the lead elbow from the blind side, footwork and much more! Cheung is a member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame (Kung Fu Artist of the Year, 1983). He has trained since the age of 10, originally under the legendary Yip Man.
