Reviews
I highly recommend this book for any tai chi student. It is a great introduction to the inner workings of internal energy and gives plenty of practice for more advanced students., . . . the present reviewer was often surprised by the effectiveness of the writing in communicating insight into complex physical movements and difficult aspects of the tradition as well as inspiring a desire to go out and put into practice new understanding.
