Great book for beginners as well as more experienced practicioners. Waysun Liao emphasises the importance of practicing athentic Tai Chi, which is grounded in meditation and the cultivation of Chi. Unlike other books, this book gives clear directions on how to cultivate your internal energy(Chi)and internal power(Jing).

Indispensible reference for Taichi
Two features make this a must-have for any Taichi practitioner's library: Liao's translation of the "Tai Chi Classics" and his commentary that explains how to apply each quote to your practice, and the line drawing of the long-form at the end of the book. There is also a good history of Taichi. The section on Jing is a little advanced... would be good to read his first book on Chi prior to this.Was this review helpful?

Definitely A Must Read
This book is packed with history, wisdom and technique pertaining to Tai Chi. It is a combination of three text on the subject. At first glance, there seems to be a disorganization in the manual if you tend to page hop through it as I tend to do with a new book. That said, the author makes a good attempt at translating the text into a more understandable form for clarity. Due to the subject matter, a first read coupled with effort to practice the instructions makes a second read a much more understandable. It is a case where application lends context which helps to foster understanding. A definite must for anybody with a serious interest in Tai Chi or who is looking for a better understanding of the human energy system and a practical means to develop it. Sure to be one of the best references to return to on a regular basis as you grow and develop in training and understanding of the principles presented.Was this review helpful?
