Description: In this innovative book, Martin Mellish focuses on the many metaphors and similes that are used in Tai Chi to help the student get a 'feel' for each stance and movement. Drawing from a wide variety of sources, both Chinese and Western, ancient and modern, he explains the application of each image not only in terms of how to move and take up a Tai Chi position, but also how to apply these to daily life. The book contains hundreds of metaphors for Tai Chi, many of which are accompanied by photographs or illustrations. It also contains information on the strictly anatomical and mechanical aspects of Tai Chi, a useful appendix on the mathematics of movement, and a summary of the latest Tai Chi research. This book provides a creative and original key to understanding the subtle complexities of Tai Chi, and in doing so reveals much about the deeper significance of the practice. It provides an important resource for Tai Chi and Qigong students and teachers, and will also be of interest to practitioners of other exercise and movement forms, including martial arts and dance.
