One Good Return Deserves Another

This addition (or should I say re-addition) contains a few books that have been unavailable for years. We know that our cutomers are loyal, but even so, we’ve been surprised that people who’ve had these on their want list for more than five years (!) still want them the moment they become available again. These […]

Three Texts: New, Old, Reborn

Our storms are done here (we hope). It seems like during the time we holed up and watched the wind change the landscape, we also acquired a host of new products and long unavailable reprints. We have just added three of these books, each in a different phase of the publishing process. NEW: First is […]

Who’re You Calling Hurt?

We just refreshed our “Hurt” books section and, boy, do we have a great selection of sale-priced gems—there are about 40 of them! As we’ve said in the past, the title “hurt” is a little misleading, since 99% of these are indistinguishable from new copies of the same title. “Hurts,” in the book industry, are […]

Fundamentals of Pakua Chang, Restocked

Just a quick note to say that we are now back in stock on the elusive and terrific Volume 1 of Park Bok Nam’s Fundamentals of Pakua Chang. This book’s reputation from back in the day is still worthy; it was one of the first to detail Pakua Chang’s (Bagua Zhang’s) training, and is still […]

Restocks of Rare Editions, North and South

You’ve proably seen our little “Want List” boxes throughout the site. And you may have also noticed that some of them stay in the “not available” state for months without being taken down. Are we really trying to torture people? No, it’s just that hope springs eternal. For instance here are two products we thought […]

Pa Kua Fundamentals, Circling Back to Plum

One of the most popular series of books on our “want” list Is Park Bok Nam’s 2 volume set, Fundamentals of Pa Kua Chang. Both volumes have been out of print for several years. A while back, Plum reprinted the 2 disk set, and we are happy to announce that we now FINALLY have, back […]

Second Look: Quick Whip Stick

In re-reviewing a DVD from one of our favorite teachers (Deng Fu Ming) we noticed something we had missed the first time around: his DVD on  Sun Taiji Partner Practice contains an added clip at the end, a beautiful and somewhat sophisticated whip stick form. It is a complete demonstration, but without instruction. This is […]

Restock: A few favorites return

We are always adding new titles to our Chinese book section, but every once in a while we are happy to see some old friends cycle back through. Our most recent shipments have landed limited quantities of those below (and more to come!)   Bajiquan Illustrated: A gem of a book with photos of GM […]

Just a short, happy announcement that we have been able to restock a few of these long-out-of-stock Choy Lay Fut (Tsai Lee Fo) DVDs. We only were able to find a few, but for the time being, we have a nice sample to offer again. (click image to go to page)

More Good Books at Great Prices

(We posted this a couple of weeks ago, and just discovered that the links didn’t work. So let’s try this again…) A couple of our hurt copies have returned; these are books with a tiny bend/crimp/crunch in an unassuming corner, that sell for happily discounted prices. Interested? Visit our hurts book page to see the […]

Feng Zhi Qiang is Back!

As you look through our products and articles you might find that some items have a big WANT LIST announcement meaning we are currently out of stock. But we keep those lists up anyway just because of things like the two items on this page. Both are by the highly-recognized Tai Chi/Xing Yi/Qigong teacher Feng […]

Get ‘Em While They’re Hot: Xing Yi and Tai Chi

We’ve added two books to our wonderful “Hurt Book” section: Shang Yun-Xiang XingYiQuan and Classical Wu Style Tai Ji Quan. The excellent Xing Yi text is one we have been carrying, but these are special priced at $12.95  (as opposed to the previously discounted Plum price of $19.95.) The Wu Style book is an old […]

Dragon (re)Emerges from the Sea

PLUM revives one of the most popular Kung Fu books of the 80’s, during the Golden Era of Kung Fu movies and practice. Dragon Form Boxing is a short book displaying form and function. The moves are big and easy to learn. This was one of a series that look liked a paste-up directly from […]

Some Animals…

…are so powerful that they can disappear at will. Case in point…Sifu Wing Lam’s book on Hung Gar’s Hasayfu Five Animals leapt right off our site at some point, and we didn’t even notice…it was there, it was gone! A Five Animal conspiracy? Anyway, we have recaptured the gang and the book is back where […]

A couple of classics return: Taijiquan and Baguazhang

It’s ALWAYS good news when we are able to announce the restocking of important texts. The Chinese books, especially, can be very difficult to keep and often it can be months or even years between having them available. So to get two at once is a real joy. The first is Wei ShuRen’s “True Description […]

Hurts without Pain: A Few More Books Return

Great news! We’ve received a few more copies of some of our more popular Hurt books (those nearly perfect copies of great books at about half the regular price.) As always, they are in limited quantities…

Wei Shuren and Shaolin Books

Just a quick note to say that we received a few copies of this hard-to-get text by Wei Shuren on Yang Tai Chi. We’ve also restocked this nice Chinese/English dual-language series (SC800 series), on many Shaolin forms. They have different covers than shown, but are the same inside. Click on each picture on the page […]

Return of the Hurts

The problem with those closets you have filled and would like to forget, like the ones out back or under your staircase, is that they invariably contain treasures. I admit it, we’ve been neglectful with our Hurts books. And we even like this section! Things are no longer amiss, though, since we just finished putting […]

Chop Chop

At Plum, we never give up on books, even if we are told they have gone out of print. And sometimes we are rewarded by the return of a classic; in this case, it’s Yin Yu Zhang’s slim volume on the famous Chopper Knife. We now, once again, have a few copies available.  Click image […]
