T'ai Chi Thirteen Sword Description

This is the most comprehensive book in the English language dealing exclusively with tai chi chuan's exotic "thirteen sword" form. In this book, the author brings the reader through the history, fundamentals, movements, and applications of this rare form, and presents priceless illustrations of famous tai chi masters demonstrating tai chi sword techniques.

Stuart Alve Olson has been a practicing Taoist for over 30 years and has studied with the famous Taoist master T. T. Liang (1900-2002). He lectures throughout the world and lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.


'On the Back' of T'ai Chi Thirteen Sword

T'ai Chi Thitteen Sword is the first serious treatment of Tai Chi Sword methods and philosophy in English. Although Sword is usually just considered an aspect of Tai Chi Chiyan, this book clearly shows that Sword practice is not only a com plete system but an art in and of itself, and-need not be trained in conjunction with any other Tai Chi exercise.

T'ai Chi Thirteen Sword goes far beyond just describing the traditional Yang Style Sword Form. Included within are first-time presentations of the following Sword aspects:
* Detailed posture instructions with photographs of the author performing the movements.
* Internal principles and applications for each of the Sword Form postures.
Warm-up methods and the San-Chiao (Triangulation)
Two-Person Training Exercises.
* Secrets of the Eight Sword Hands.
The Thirteen Secret Sword Meanings and their applications.
Methods for training the Sword fingers.
A pictorial essay of three famous Sword Masters-Chen Wei-ming, Hsiung Yang-ho, and TT. Liang-performing the Traditional Tai Chi Sword Form.

Stuart Olson is an internationally recognized teacher, trans-lator, and author of numerous works on martial arts and Asian philosophy. As a longtime protégé of the famous Master T.T. Liang, Stuart has taught Tai Chi, meditation, and massage throughout the United States and Asia.
