Tai Chi Step-By-Step (Skills in Motion) (Library Binding)
Considered a soft style of Chinese martial art, Tai Chi has swept the globe and attracted millions of enthusiastic practitioners more interested in health and well-being than in the more traditional aggressive or defensive maneuvers of hard martial arts. The development of internal power that tai chi emphasizes promotes good health, develops one's meditation skills, and teaches the basic tenets of self-defense. This is a form of physical activity that is fully loaded, promoting holistic physical, emotional, and spiritual health. This book introduces both basic and higher level techniques, with easy to follow, step-by-step instructions, enhanced by innovative stop-motion sequential photography.
