Recommends it for: Yang style Tai Chi people.
This book is a highly accurate manual for the study of Yang style Tai Chi Chuan or howeva you'd like to spell it. With very descriptive passages about all aspects from the basics to the philosophy this book also contains step by step instructions on how to position the body throughout the form.

Diagrams are included but do not attempt to learn Tai Chi from this book alone as you also need the guidance of a master. Having said that if you are interested in the Yang style of Tai Chi then this shoul

Anyone interested in doing Tai Chi should own this book. It's the only book that describes step by step exactly how to do the form, with hundreds of detailed illustrations. I made this video using this book

Anyone who follows any of Yang Cheng students will find the basics of their form in this book. Well worth the time it takes to read through. A must read for Cheng Manqing students.
So far it has been a good supplement to my mom's Yang style teachings of the philosophies and I am interested to see if I can refine any one my movements using this book.
