This is the original classic about Short Form, the most popular and widespread form of T'ai Chi in the West. T'ai Chi Ch'uan is a must-read for every serious T'ai Chi student. This book is not meant to "teach" T'ai Chi Ch'uan, but meant to expound upon its meaning to the earnest practitioner; to offer the layperson a glimpse into this ancient art; and to communicate the author's unique perceptions and experiences that only a lifetime of practice can cultivate. Taken in this context, this is a most valuable book.

About the Author:

Cheng Man Ch’ing published T'ai Chi, the Supreme Ultimate Exercise for Health, Sport and Self-Defence in 1967. He wrote over a dozen other books on many subjects, including the I Ching, the Tao Te Ching, the Analects of Confucius, as well as poetry, essays, and medicine. He died in 1975 at age 73.

Review:

"T'ai Chi Ch'uan as an art form of self-defense must completely spurn both physical bravery and muscular force. One is told that 'in any action, the whole body must be made as light and free-moving as possible;' so light that 'the addition of a feather will be felt for its weight, and so free-moving that a fly cannot alight on it without setting it in motion.'"
-Cheng Man-Ch'ing
