Do the Chinese have a secret for youthfulness, health, long life and peace of mind? If they do, an important part of it lies in T'ai-chi, the exercise that millions have been practicing for centuries. To young and old, male and female, weak and strong, T'ai-chi is a wonderful source of relaxation and well-being. In fact, the Chinese consider its purpose to be nothing less than rejuvenation and prolongation of life.

T'ai-chi is an effortless and rhythmical art that stresses slow breathing, balanced and relaxed postures, and absolute calmness of mind. It requires no special equipment or place to practice, and takes less than ten minutes a day.

This book, from renowned Tai Chi master, Cheng Man-Ch'ing, introduces T'ai-chi as a means to a healthier life, as a sport and as a method of self defense. It is a complete step-by-step manual for the beginner. With conscientious practice, readers will master the sequence of thirty-seven postures that will make up the T'ai-chi solo exercise. Students will learn how to progress from exercise to sport to self defense with maximum efficiency. The instructions are easy to follow, and more than 275 photographs and 122 foot-weighting diagrams guarantee an understanding of the correct form.
