    Qigong for Health and Martial Arts

    This book is for all level of practitioners, for every age. It does not only give valuable advise to a martial arts practitioner but also serves as an exercise book for those who want to maintain wellness when ageing. Several topics in this book were known to me before reading it. But the simple and well done explanations on selected topics opened me new horizons and new insights and created a deeper understanding of this ancient science.

    Will last you for ever!

    This book is a lifetime investment: it teaches you still/meditative qigong, moving qigong and a range of other related exercises that will last you many,many years. The aim of the book is to help the practitioner build up Qi-energy. As such, this book is ideal for any martial artist regardless of style, I picked this book up when I was doing Aikido and I have been a fan of Dr.Yang's material ever since. You can use this book for self-instruction of the basics, for the more advanced training I would recommend reading up on some of Dr.Yangs introductory books on Qigong theory beforehand. But reaching the more advanced levels takes years of daily practice. The theory in this book is kept short in favour of the exercises and the pictures, there are also brief historical sections.
