Tai Chi Chuan Martial Power
By Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming. 7.25" x 9.5", 274 pages, paperback. Tai Chi Chuan Martial Power is the next level in Tai Chi Chuan training. This book is written especially for those who have learned the Tai Chi form, have begun Pushing Hands, and now want to develop and refine their Tai Chi skills.
Tai Chi Chuan Martial Power focuses on the martial essence of Tai Chi Chuan, an aspect many other books ignore. This book goes in-depth and explores the subject of Jing (internal martial power), general Tai Chi theory, and the application of Chi (Qi) in the Tai Chi form. Because Jing training is essential to martial art Tai Chi, this work is a valuable reference that no serious practitioner should be without.
