By Vincent Chu. 6"x 9", 144 pages, paperback. The traditional Yang family long form has been abbreviated, and those movements which are difficult to perform have been removed, thus making it easy to learn while providing all of the health benefits of the original form. Illustrated with step-by-step photos, Beginner's Tai Chi Chuan is the only book the newcomer will ever need. History and philosophy, basic stances and postures, and the complete 26 movement form are presented here in an easy-to-follow instructional format.
