Journal of Asian Martial Arts Description

'Inside the Cover' of Journal of Asian Martial Arts

In 1965 Sifu Kuo Lien- Ying, a Chinese master of Tai- Chi Chuan, brought with him to the United States the traditional form of Tai-Chi from which the many other family-named forms were derived. Later Master Kuo founded the Lien-Ying Tai-Chi Chuan Academy in San Francisco.

Since Master Kuo's death Mme. Kuo has continued to teach his form, developing a substantial following. Two of her students have written the preface and foreword, respectively, to this book.

The precise sequencing of the photographs' coordination with the step-by-step instructions reflects Mme. Kuo's analysis of the original authentic moves over a twenty-year period. She traces the historical and philosophical development of Tai-Chi Chan within the context of the sister martial arts from which it was created: Shao-lin Chuan, Shing-Yi Chuan, and Pa-Kua Tsang. Though intended for beginners, Long Life, Good Health should fascinate more advanced students who want to research and compare ancient forms and lineages of Tai-Chi Chuan.

Simmone Kuo has taught Chinese internal arts in San Francisco for the last two decades. She is familiar to Bay Area citizens and children from her many television and school appearances. She continues to lead classes at the Academy which bears her family name and is a member of the Physical Education Department at San Francisco State University.
