There have been many books written about Tai Chi Ch'uan but this is the first on Ch'ang style Tai Chi Ch'uan. Whether you are new to Tai Chi or experienced in other styles, the Ch’ang style is... More > a good one to learn. Ch’ang Tai Chi is not so much a new style but rather a modification of the Yang style.

Oefening baart slechts uiterlijke kunst. T’ai Chi Ch’uan doe je voor de lol. Alle positieve effecten ontstaan dan vanzelf. Het is volkomen onbelangrijk om iets over de filosofische achtergronden van T'ai Chi te weten om T'ai Chi te kunnen begrijpen, want dat kan niet en dat hoeft niet. Er is geen dogma. De praktijk gaat voor de leer. Maar als je dan toch perse wat wilt lezen vooruit maar. Hoewel er in dit boek hoofdstukken zijn is er geen opbouw, elk hoofdstuk staat op zichzelf. In een van de legendes over Chan San-Feng is er spreke van een aap die de oefeningen van de meester naadeed. Hij noemde de aap Xiao Ting. De aap begreep de inhoud niet, maar de vorm beheerste hij perfect.< Less

More > Royal Geographical Society on the 22nd of February, and published in the Proceedings for June, 1886; Chapter XI. was read at the Aberdeen meeting of the British Association in September, 1885; and Chapter XII. was addressed to a special meeting of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce on the 12th of May, 1886. The remaining Chapters are now published for the first time, and, if they meet with half the favour bestowed upon the Parliamentary Papers in which the journeys were first, and somewhat roughly, described, the writer will consider himself amply rewarded for the work which want of leisure has compelled him to neglect so long.”< Less
