4.0 out of 5 stars A valuable insight into Cheng Man-ch'ing, 8 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Master of Five Excellences (Paperback)
I found it fascinating to read about the other arts or 'excelencies' of the Professor. I particularly thought his views on poetry, calligraphy and art to be truely inspirational. I also found that a great deal of the approaches used these arts could be transferred to Tai Chi Ch'uan. As a student of Tai Chi Ch'uan under a teacher who's teacher studied with the Professor (Wolfe Lowenthal) I am deeply interested in Cheng Man-Ch'ing and it was wonderful to read the articles and lectures that are in the book as they are unlikely to be found elsewhere. The only downside was the articles about medicine where I felt the views being laid out were at odds to the current mind set. But this does not really detract from what is a wonderful book, which gives an insight into the life of Professor Cheng Man-Ch'ing. Every student studying Tai Chi Ch'uan with the Cheng Man-Ch'ing modified Yang style form of 37 postures should have this in their collection, for its insights and articles that provoke thoughts in the students as to how to approach the form, as it has for me.
