Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Cheng Man-ch'ing, the famed master of t'ai chi, is regarded as an enormously influential figure in codifying the most widely practiced form of the ancient martial art. This volume, developed by the martial arts master and scholar, details the way that students arrive at a posture — from beginning movements to the end pose. Master Cheng provides practitioners with a complete and concise guide to the Short Form, enabling them to make rapid progress.

Synopsis:

A guide to Tai Chi Chuan, written in response to the popularity of Cheng's simplified 37-posture form as presented in "13 Chapters on Tai Chi Chuan". The text offers analysis of each movement, in language plain enough for an unexperienced beginner to use the book to learn and master the postures.

About the Author

He has lectured at the National College of Political Science in Taiwan and Tonsei University in Seoul.
