Compact Tai Chi Description

'On the back' of Compact Tai Chi

"Tsao's fundamental Compact Tai Chi is much more than a form of exercise. It is a self-healing approach that enhances and maintains health, and prevents disease by balancing body, mind, and spirit." KERRY J. KLUNER, M.D., Medical Director of the Shi-ho Center for Creative & Healing Arts

Tai Chi is an effective and inexpensive wellness program for dealing with the stress of companies are even encouraging staff to practice Tai Chi on-site for stress management and sickness prevention. However, many offices, homes, and apartments don't have enough space (and many of us don't have the time) to practice the traditional Tai Chi forms. Jesse Tsao addresses these problems with his system of Compact Tai Chi, which folds and coils the traditional linear form into a circular format, taking only one-quarter to one-third the area required to practice conventional Tai Chi. It also takes much less time. If you have ten minutes, you have time to rejuvenate your body and mind using Compact Tai Chi!

Tsao combines five major styles in one compact and comprehensive form, exposing you to different Tai Chi approaches. Each posture is illustrated to demonstrate the movement in detail, and positioning is clearly indicated using clock-dial directions. Key points are added to help you better understand the instructions, and self-defense applications are included for those interested in the martial arts aspect of Tai Chi. Jesse Tsao presents four independent sequences to meet the needs of Tai Chi practitioners at all levels whether you've just started Tai Chi, or have been practicing for years.

JESSE TSAO, Tai Chi master and alternative medicine and wellness consultant, specializes in the areas of relaxation, stress management, mind and body wellness, self-healing, and preventative therapies. He won tournaments in China with his traditional Tai Chi forms before moving to the United States in 1987. Since 1994 he has been master Tai Chi instructor for the Arizona State Employee Wellness Tai Chi program, and has taught Tai Chi as an alternative medicine for CIGNA HealthCare. He's conducted many Tai Chi workshops for professional organizations and is the founder of two Tai Chi Healthway Clubs, one in Phoenix, Arizona, the other in San Diego, California.

We can send your item(s) in the following ways:
Courier Tracked - Order before 1pm, we can pack and post the same day to be with you the next working day, this is not a weekend service. It is fully tracked and we will send you the tracking number when we process your order.
Evri - In our experience an extremely slow service, we cannot guarantee it will arrive. It isn't an option on the website for good reason, so if you want this pitiful service and your parcel thrown into a random hedge near your house, if you're lucky, just to save about £2 then simply call us on 0117 942 5832 and we can process your order over the phone. 
Fedex Worldwide - For anywhere outside the UK, we can post the same day but delivery times are dependent on the destination. Approximate delivery times are as follows:
