The Chinese Art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan Description

T’ai Chi is one of the finest ways of improving health and achieving deep tranquillity. This is a fully illustrated, complete introduction to the ancient Chinese martial art, written by the President of the International Taoist Society. T’ai Chi Ch’uan, which literally means ‘The Supreme Ultimate’, has proved itself over and over again to be one of the finest ways of improving health and creating tranquillity throughout the entire nervous system, creating a deep peace of mind.

T’ai Chi consists of a system of body movements designed to promote physical, mental, emotional and spiritual harmony. This straightforward, clearly designed guide introduces all the different aspects of the art, including:
· T’ai Chi Sword and T’ai Chi Dance
· 140 stances, with photographs and detailed instructions for each one
· T’ai Chi’s philosophical and historical context


'Inside the Cover' ofThe Chinese Art of T'ai Chi Ch'uan


Tai Chi means "The Supreme Ultimate." Tai Chi Ch'uan is one of the ancient Chinese martial arts, whose origins are lost in time. It is a dynamic aid to health and inner tranquility by releasing the natural energy of the body through a series of controlled movements for self-defence and the development of  physical and mental powers.

Chee Soo has written a complete, fully-illustrated guide to the practice and the significance of Tai Chi. It includes an introduction to the little known practice of Tai Chi sword and dance.


Chee Soo was born in 1919. Orphaned at eight, he grew up in a Dr Barnardo Home. During the War, he fought in France, North Africa and Burma, where he was captured by the Japanese. He escaped and, after 30 days in the rough with a Ghurka friend, made contact with an American guerrilla patrol.

Immediately after the War, he began teaching the Chinese Arts and founded the Chinese Cultural Arts Association to train instructors and organize Teaching programmes. He  has been president of the Association  since 1958, which with the International Wu Shu Association, now spans the world. He runs a Chinese Health and Herbal Clinic in London.
