Im "Theorie" Kapitel werden z.B. die philosophischen Askpekte, Yin & Yang, Qi, die 5 Elemente, Trainingmethoden, Strategien usw. behandelt. Desweiteren werden häufig gestellte Fragen beantwortet. Weitere Schwerpunkte sind die "Druckpunkte" (in der chinesischen Medizin), welche man sich im Kampf zu Nutze machen kann, und der Themenkomplex "Gesundheit & Fitness". Zum Schluß gibt es eine Übersetzung der kantonesischen Begriffe bzw. Namen der Techniken, die im Buch verwendet werden.
Mir persönlich gefällt vor allem der theoretische Teil sehr gut, da es nicht so erscheint, als ob der Author versucht sein Wissen, Verständnis und Sicht der Dinge dem Leser "aufzuzwingen". Im Gegenteil viel mehr möchte der Author dem Leser dieses mitgeben, so dass dieser seinen eigenen Weg und Balance finden kann.
Fazit: (IMHO) Alles in allem ein sehr gutes Buch, das definitiv sein Geld wert ist. Sehr empfehlenswert für alle Wing Chun Interessierten und auch die Jenigen, die diese Kampfkunst bereits praktizieren.

It is the most well thought out martial arts book I've ever seen. Mr. Belonoha starts exceedingly clearly, defining the core principles of the Wing Chun system within the first page and 1/2.
The next 100 pages or so then go into the expanded theory and technical aspects of the Wing Chun system. The
book is layed out in a fashion that it can be read cover to cover or, it can be opened randomly at any page throughout and the content makes sense. Nothing is left out. (Note: this book does not cover Wing Chun's wooden man dummy form or the weapons
forms - hopefully a subsequent book will follow shortly).
The next 300 pages deal in great detail with the first three (non weapon) Wing Chun forms: Siu Nim Tau, Cham Kiu and Biu Ji. Pictures of Mr. Belonoha, a previous gold medallist at multiple national and international level competitions show every detail of each form. Each photo is accompanied by equally detailed descriptions of proper technique and points to emphasize and, common mistakes to watch out for. His web site has live video of the forms. It is important to note that the videos are the exact same instances that the still photos were derived from so no gaps are left for a reader to figure out.
The final 100+ pages cover pressure points, health and fitness, and Wing Chun terminology (Chinese terms define into
English terms). The finale is a deeply revealing article called "Reflections of Siu Nim Tau After 30 Years by Grandmaster Sunny Tang". Grandmaster Sunny Tang has been Mr. Belonoha's Sifu since 1992 and, Mr. Belonoha is the Senior Instructor at the Sunny Tang Martial Arts Centre Headquarters School in Toronto. (All of this is in the book too).
I also like the sayings on the bottom of each page in addition to everything else. Again from the first page: "Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable", Mr. Belonoha has exhibited a phenomenal understanding of clarity and order. Each page has a similar relevant saying that applies to all of one's life, not just their martial art.
This is not a read it once and you know all it type book. It will give you all the information that you need and is very easy to understand. However, as your Wing Chun improves, the information within will have deeper and deeper meaning to you. Because Mr. Belonoha fully understands Wing Chun, the simplicity of the writing is also somewhat of an illusion - there is no limit to the lessons that can be learned. The book is meaningful to Wing Chun enthusiasts of every level. Anyone reading this book will get a lot out of it. Mine is already on the way to being well worn from the constant references that I am making to it either before or after most training sessions. In short, "The Wing Chun Compendium" is an excellent book from both a 'detailed reference manual' for training and a 'cover to cover reading book' to fully understand what genuine Wing Chun is all about. If you are training in Wing Chun and want to know the non-modified methods, this book is a 'must have'. I know that my copy will always be in use. If I ever happen to loose my copy, I will be replacing it right away.

It is laid out very simply and concise, much like the art itself. It covers the core principles of the system and it does a good job of explaining chinese ideas in english. It has a pretty in-depth explaination of meridians (channels of chi) that would appeal to anyone trying to understand the difference between chinese and western thinking on the human body.
It does about as good as is possible in a book at describing the art itself, which means it beats anything I've seen previous. Little philosophy quotes/ideas are listed throughout the book along each page...a very nice touch. It allows a mix of the philosophy into the work without making the direct content become too flowery. It stays on topic and is very efficient at describing the system.
I'm sure various wing chun students will have minor changes in the forms and such, but overall the work is invaluable to students of the system. This means it doesn't try to be a learning manual for the untrained but more a reference book for those that do. Instead of listing the specifics of one lineage it sticks to the core ideas which is a challenge that most books seem to fail on. A lot of MA books focus on trying to sell as the new and best "secret" system to overcome all other fighting arts...this one does not. The author achieved his goal of providing a thorough, accurate reference text on Wing Chun. The tone is rather neutral in that it avoids politics and presents the material without trying to over-prove it's validity. It's very "here is the theory, this is what backs it up, these are some examples of theory in practice, here is reference material for further study".
It may literally be the best martial arts book I've ever seen.
I just hope that the last part of the system - the Wooden Dummy, The Pole Form, and the Knife form will be represented in another part. This is the main reason I gave it one less star. It cannot be THE Wing Chun Compendium if it does not have the WHOLE System.
