  4. Tai Chi for Two the Practice of Push Hands

    Tai Chi for Two the Practice of Push Hands

    $15.00
    Push Hands is a basic exercise for two partners that is practiced by students of T'ai Chi. Paul Crompton presents it here as a means of training oneself to relax under physical and mental pressure and to improve one's interactions with others in everyday life. Confronting the fear of threats to one's self-image and of losing one's balance is part of the psychological dimension of this practice. The author also offers, in workbook style, instruction in the fundamentals of the soft form of Push Hands and prepares the ground for studying the hard form, which is the actual fighting style. With step-by-step instructions and photographs demonstrating the movements, plus chapters on the concept of ch'i and Taoist philosophy, the book provides both practical advice and a philosophical appreciation of this popular Chinese exercise. Paul Crompton has been teaching T'ai Chi in England since the early 1970's. He is the editor of the British magazine Karate and Oriental Arts and the author of several books, including the T'ai Chi Workbook. Learn More
  5. Tai Chi: The Supreme Ultimate exercise for health, sport, & self defense

    Tai Chi: The Supreme Ultimate exercise for health, sport, & self defense

    $9.99
    This book introduces T'ai-chi as a means to a healthier life, as a sport, and as a means of self-defense. It is a complete step-by-step manual for the beginner. It will enable him, with conscientious practice, to master the sequence of thirty-seven postures that make up the T'ai-chi solo exercise. The directions are clear-cut and easy to follow. More than 275 photographs, together with 122 foot-weighting diagrams, guarantee a ready understanding of the correct procedure. A convenient fold-out illustrates the thirty-seven postures in a continuous sequence. The main emphasis in this introductory manual is on T'ai-chi as a superior way to healthful living. But T'ai-chi, when practiced with a partner, is an enjoyabe sport, and its movements form the basis for an unexcelled system of self-defense. The book therefore gives both of these important aspects of T'ai-chi their due share of attention and shows the student how to progress from exercise to sport to self-defense with the maximum of efficiency. In addition, the authors furnish interesting and informative sidelights on T'ai-chi and its history, including thumbnail sketches of famous masters and, for the first time in English, a translation of the basic T'ai-chi document known as the "T'ai-chi Ch'uan Classics."
