In this second printing of what has been referred to as a instant classic, master Yang skillfully blends Eastern and Western thought and illuminates traditional teachings as well as offers scientific explanations and a contemporary understanding of Taiji practice. In this book, Yang describes the core exercises that form the foundation of Taiji practice, and explains the purpose and necessary integration of these exercises to achieve the full health and martial, physical and spiritual benefits of Taiji training. As both a traditionally trained expert of Taijiquan and a scientist studying the mechanisms and benefits of Taiji practice, Yang uniquely demystifies Taijiquan and makes it more accessible to a Western audience. Carefully preserving and drawing from classical Taiji writings and the oral traditions of the Chinese martial arts community, Yang also suggests ground-breaking hypothesis to explain the mechanisms of how and why Taiji practices are so widely beneficial. This book is valuable to both beginning and advanced practitioners.
