Intended for existing practitioners of one of the most popular Chinese martial arts, as well as for the growing numbers of people without access to a trained instructor, this handbook provides coverage of the Yang style of tai chi chuan. The book presents the background to tai chi and the different internal martial arts and outlines associated health benefits, rules for practice and correct posture. It introduces the concepts of pushing hands and describes many Chinese yogic and meditation exercises and includes chapters on self-defence and sword training for the more advanced enthusiast. The author, Master John Hine, is Chief Instructor of the United Kingdom Tai Chi Chuan Association.
