Today people around the world are discovering the benefits of Tai-chi, an ancient Chinese system of exercise based on calm, graceful movements that condition the body from the inside out. With benefits like reduced stress and anxiety, plus improved flexibility and concentration, Tai-chi has become the ultimate form of exercise for relaxing and strengthening both body and spirit.

Master Huang's Complete Tai-chi is the definitive introduction to the Condensed Form of Wu-style Tai-chi, a form that has gained enormous popularity as a healing exercise because it stresses the development of internal energy for self-healing. The 36 postures of this style are beautiful in their simplicity and completely safe, regardless of one's age or physical condition. Included in this book are a detailed guide to the 36 postures (with more than 250 illustrative photographs), a historical overview of Tai-chi, and translations of classic works by Tai-chi masters.

The demands of Tai-chi are small, but the rewards are great. A few minutes each day and a bit of open space are all one needs to find a new path to youthfulness and longevity, and at the same time reach the peak of physical and emotional well-being.
While promoting health and spiritual awareness, this book provides step-by-step instruction in the practice, history and philosophy of Wu-style Tai-chi.

I learned this complete form in four weeks. It is a gem of Tai-chi chuan Wu style. The photos were easy to follow along with the easy to understand directions of travel. Master Huang exudes his joy of Tai-chi and its many benefits in this book including translated treatises to be read and studied as the heart of Wu-style Tai-chi. This book is now a part of me. I will spend my remaining years mastering this simple form form to discover its hidden treasures.
