ABOUT THE BOOK
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.
