The Legend of Jow Lung (Vol 1)

The Legend of Jow Lung is a graphic novel that retells the life and struggles of the founder of Jow Ga Martial Arts, the legendary Kung Fu Master, Jow Lung. Jow Lung, along with his four brothers, Jow Hip, Jow Biu, Jow Hoy , and Jow Tin, created the Jow Ga system in the early days of 20th Century China as a means of physical, spiritual and social discipline in response to the economic devastation and social decay brought about by Western colonization and the Opium Wars of the early 1900's.

The Legend of Jow Lung is written for younger audiences, but retains the historical accuracy needed to tell this story fully. Written by Jow Ga Master, Abdur-Rahim Muhammad, and illustrated by martial arts student and cartoonist, Clay Harris, The Legend of Jow Lung is written in mind for the youth of inner-city communities who face social challenges similar to those faced by Jow Lung himself when he started his training.
