Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to Master Liao, the great power of T'ai Chi cannot be realized without knowing its inner meaning. T'ai Chi Classics presents the inner meaning and techniques of T'ai Chi movements through translations of three core classics of T'ai Chi, often considered the "T'ai Chi Bible." The texts are introduced by three chapters explaining how to increase inner energy (ch'i), transform it into inner power (jing), and project this inner power outward to repel an opponent without physical contact. Master Liao also provides a description of the entire sequence of T'ai Chi movements, illustrated by his own line drawings.

Book News Annotation:

Master Waysun Liao (trained in Taiwan, he has taught in the US for 30 years) offers not only a translation of the T'ai Chi Classics I, II, and III (commonly known as the T'ai Chi Bible) but provides explanations of them, with frequent line drawings to demonstrate the basic principles described. In addition to the Classics, the text contains four short works from collections by unknown masters and a chapter on the T'ai Chi meditative movement. The work is intended as an introductory text rather than a complete training manual, The 1977 printing was produced by Del Mar.
