Covers the history of tai chi, the form, stances, whirling arms, sword, stick, and lots of useful information. Well worth having as a reference.

If like me you have fallen in love with Lishi but struggle to take it all in in class, it's very helpful to have this book with diagrams, history and explanations. Very simply written and a great resource for anyone interested in Taoism, Chinese medicine and martial arts. I just wish there was more of it!

A pleasure to find a book which tells the truth, it's a pity Chee Soo has passed away, he was a brilliant martial arts teacher, a great character and a good friend. He is sorely missed, but he lives on through his books.

After practising this style of Tai Chi for 2 years I found this book to be a good companion, easy to follow pictures and descriptions along with some text on the benefits of Tai Chi Chuan, and some advanced sword techiques, Chi Soo's book is a good companion or a starting point, but cannot replace learning from a teacher or class.
