With a new introduction by the author The ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi explained. This work highlights the different ways Tai Chi can best be focused for optimal benefits: to improve health as exercise, connecting the mind and body through meditation, or as self-defense. Photographs accompany form descriptions to better show the rhythmic and graceful postures that together make the fluid movements of Tai Chi. Regular practice of this relaxed mental-physical exercise, often described as "meditation in motion," increases coordination, balance, and harmony with nature. Herman Kauz, widely-respected teacher of Tai Chi (and a practitioner of not only Tai Chi but also Akido, Judo, and Karate) here distills the very central theses of Tai Chi lifestyle and practice. A perfect manual for the beginner or the seasoned expert, the Tai Chi Handbookis a classic in its field, now revised for a new generation of readers.
