Tai Chi: Tranquility in Motion

Paperback / softback
This title provides a brief introduction to Tai Chi Chuan, one of the ancient martial arts of China, whose roots go back more than two millennia. It is ideal for beginners who wish to pursue a form of exercise that promotes mental and physical well-being. Although it has always been practiced in the East, it was only after the Second World War that the art of Tai Chi became established in the West. After considering the philosophy underlying Tai Chi Chuan, and how the various styles developed, the title looks at concepts such as rooting, and the principles of movement on which all the styles are based.
