“…this book will be of great benefit to any Wing Chun practitioner, no matter which lineage they are following, and should be placed in the “must own” category of books!”
-Wing Chun Illustrated Magazine, Issue 30

“Informative and well-written, Sifu Alex Richter’s first book is an excellent introduction to the Siu Nim Tau form. I wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone who is practising, or just interested in learning more about Hong Kong Wing Tsun.”
-Eric Lilleør, Publisher/Editor of Wing Chun Illustrated

“As a researcher, Richter is able to view knowledge with enough impartiality to absorb what is useful, while not rejecting all prior learning as useless and contextualizing it objectively for historical context.”
-Dr. Mark Cheng

“His yearning for knowledge in teaching historical and philosophical correctness is in of itself light years ahead of most martial artists I have come into contact with.”
-Vincent Lyn, Hong Kong actor, Jackie Chan’s Operation Condor, Tiger Cage, Outlaw Brothers

“Through him (Alex Richter), a wider world of movement and martial arts has opened up to me.”
