Master Huang's "Complete Tai-chi" is the definitive introduction to the Condensed Form of Wu-style Tai-chai, a form that has gained enormous popularity as a healing exercise because it stresses the development of internal energy for self-healing. The 36 postures of this style are beautiful in their simplicity and completely safe, regardless of one's age or physical condition. Included in this book are a detailed guide to the 36 postures (with more than 250 illustrative photographs), a historical overview of the Tai-chi, and translations of classic works by Tai-chi masters.
