Mastering Yang Style Taijiquan Description

'On the back' of Mastering Yang Style Taijiquan

MASTERING YANG STYLE TAIJIQUAN is the first English translation of Fu Zhongwen's esteemed handbook on the art of taijiquan. The books superbly detailed form instructions are based upon Fu's more than twenty years of first-hand study as a disciple of the eminent Yang Chengfu. The historic line-art drawings that accompany the text were rendered from photos taken of Yang Chengfus form. Together, the drawings and form instructions constitute some of the best documentation that we have of the traditional Yang Style Taijiquan form as taught by Master Yang Chengfu.
Other important features of this book include:

  • Fu Zhongwen's elucidation of moving points of concentration, termed jindian, in the Grasp Sparrow's Tail sequence of the form.
  • Succinct descriptions of Fixed-Step Push Hands, Active-Step Push Hands, and Dalu practice.
  • Careful new translations of the five core "Taiji Classics."
  • The translator's close investigation into the language of the "Taiji Classics," revealing the grounding of Taiji theory in abiding philosophical themes.

LOUIS SWAIN lives and practices in Oakland, California. He has also translated an earlier taijiquan manual, Yang Chengfu: The Essence and Applications of Tatjiguan North Atlantic Books, 2005). He received his master's degree in Chinese history, Mandarin, and Classical Chinese at U.C. Berkeley, and did additional language study at the Inter-University Program for Chinese Language Studies. He has been a taijiquan practitioner for over thirty years.
