The Tai Chi Two-Person Dance : T. T. Liang’s Tai Chi San-Shou – Jonathan L Russell

The Tai Chi Two-Person Dance : T. T. Liang's Tai Chi San-Shou

While there are currently many books on the popular solo exercises of Tai Chi Chuan, this is the first to detail the complete advanced Tai Chi sets performed with a partner. The Tai Chi Two-Person Dance combines all of the Tui Shou, Da Lu, and San Shou exercises of Tai Chi into one set. Students are able to use in context the slow and graceful movements that they have learned through solo practice. While the individual exercise emphasizes an internal observing of your balance and movements, the Two-Person Dance combines this internal observation with an active awareness of your partner’s movement and balance. By harmonizing your movements with a partner you will develop sensitivity of feeling externally generated movement. The skills of interpreting and adhering without resistance or letting go can be developed and refined. The Two-Person Dance is the apex of the art of Tai Chi. This book came about through a twenty-year association between the author and the renowned Tai Chi teacher T.T. Liang. Photographs and diagrams lead the reader step by step through the intricacies of each movement. More than just a “how to” book, The Tai Chi Two-Person Dance explains in contemporary terms the subtle concepts and ideas underlying the movements.
