New Style Tai Chi Ch'uan
The Official Chinese SystemBook - 1999
Enhance your body, mind, and soul with the newest and most comprehensive form of Tai Chi Chuan! Developed by the Chinese National Physical Education Administration, it has rapidly become popular for its inclusiveness, simplicity, and lack of repeated movement. And Tai Chi's special combination of meditation, motion, and methods of breathing make it the best technique for maintaining health, as well as for self-defense. Once you've understood the history of Tai Chi and its relationship to Taoism, you can use the channels and meridians that transmit vital energy throughout the body, and see how they can aid and benefit specific bodily organs. Start practicing the first four complete Tai Chi Chuan sequences, each comprised of twenty movements, and follow the instructions on positioning the body, where to look, how to breathe properly, and what to concentrate on. Regular practice of Tai Chi Chuan will improve health, add vigor to your life, increase mental alertness, and enhance creativity; and prolong sexual potency and activity. 96 pages, 149 b/w illus., 8 x 10.
