Tai Chi Chuan: 24 & 48 Postures with Martial Applications

Tai Chi Chuan: 24 & 48 Postures with Martial Applications Review

I'm learning some basic taichi off youtube. Even though I'm doing different forms from the book, this book and the separately sold DVD provides some nice background info to help understand the martial background of these moves. I've found it helpful to know this.

I used to do a good bit of stance training... taichi seems to develop a similar vitality boost while also developing flexibility and is more entertaining than the standing practice, fortunately.

I've been at it for 7 weeks and my wife says I look 5 years younger. My leg strength, vitality, and flexibility have improved. I haven't lost any weight and upper body strength hasn't had any boost.

Overall, a nice addition.
