T'ai Chi's Ancestors

The Making of an Internal Martial Art


By Douglas Wile, 6" x 9", 224 page, paperback. This book introduces three 16th to 18th century traditions, those of a general, a peasant, and a scholar - who contributed critical foundation material to the multifaceted edifice of Tai Chi. This book examines the more than 2,000 year development of soft-style martial arts, theory, attitudes, and its popularization. Authentic historical origins of Tai Chi and a glimpse into centuries of Chinese culture.  Suggested Retail Price: $ 29.95
