Beginning T'ai Chi by Tri Thong Dang
Book DescriptionMore than a martial art, T'ai Chi is also a holistic method of self-healing, a form of moving meditation, and a philosophical way of life. Health, relaxation, and self-defense are but a few reasons cited for practicing this traditional exercise, which was created by a Toaist sage eight centuries ago. Now a recreational activity practiced by millions of people worldwide, T'ai Chi, with its physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits widely recognized and praised, is the fastest growing martial art in the world today.In this handy guide, Master Tri Thong Dang, who has been an instructor of the Chen, Yang, Zhao, and T'ai-Mantis systems of T'ai Chi Ch'uan for over three decades, describes the "Simplified T'ai Chi" form, a set of movements specifically designed for beginners by China's Ministry of Physical Culture and Sports> Master Tri's concise but lucid descriptions highlight the spiritual essence of the form and at the same time display its graceful simplicity. With over 160 clear, easy-to-understand illustrations, this excellent volume is the ultimate introduction to the world of T'ai Chi.
