Karen Armstrong

I bought this book in Australia in 1997.

Freedom From Fear by Karen Armstrong

It's an excellent all-round self-protection guide. It was also, for me, a primer for wing chun kung fu, because the fighting principles and techniques demonstrated by Karen Armstrong in the book are based on her expertise in wing chun.

Not long after buying this book, I started my own training in ving chun kuen.

Kevin calls Karen Armstrong "wing chun's leading lady," and he has written about her here: http://www.earleswingchun.com/women-in-wing-chun

"Her petite 5'2" frame was dwarfed by her passion, enthusiasm, and obvious skill in Wing Chun. A supreme example of the power of Wing Chun."

"As skilful in her practical application of Wing Chun as she is in her effectiveness as a promoter, manager, and teacher of the art, she has rightly earned the title, 'Wing Chun's Leading Lady'."
