The first English language book on the subject of tai chi, this book brilliantly describes in detail each movement together with easy-to-follow pictures for learning. First published in 1961, this book remains a firm favourite amongst beginners and refreshers alike. My intention in writing this book is to bring to the attention of Western people this ancient masterpiece of health exercise, which, ancient though it is, is supremely suitable for us all in these modem times. I wish to create an informed understanding of what is necessary, theoretically, for a vital life, and also to arouse the interest of the reader and his willingness to apply this exercise for his own use. As an exercise that demands no physical strength to begin with, it therefore is as good for the weak as for the well, for young and old, men and women. Since the techniques are adjusted to, and develop with, individual capacities, it is practical for any disposition. Movement by movement, step by step, with its organic and intrinsic harmony, it trains both body and mind-to longer life with heightened interest and deeper understanding. The calmness that comes from harmonious physical activity and mental perception, and the composure that comes from deep feeling and comprehension are the very heart of this exercise
