about

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.
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.

Editorial Reviews

"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
