The Yang Taiji 24-Step Short Form : A Step-by-Step Guide for all Levels – James Drewe

The Yang Taiji 24-Step Short Form : A Step-by-Step Guide for all Levels

Yang 24-Step Taijiquan is one of the most widely-practiced Taijiquan forms in the world today, and the form that most people first learn. Gentle enough to be suitable for the elderly, yet challenging enough to stretch even the most experienced practitioner, it is also one of the most accessible and rewarding. In his new book, James Drewe provides a comprehensive and detailed explication of the postures and movements of the form. For each, he describes exactly how the weight flows, how to use the hands, how to move the limbs, and how to relax into the movement, clearly explaining each step with the aid of foot patterns and photographs. Sections on the internal aspects of Taijiquan, descriptions of the subtle variations that may be made when performing certain movements, and even instructions on how to fit the movements to music are also included. This comprehensive guide to Yang 24-Step Taijiquan is an invaluable resource for taiji practitioners at all levels, including beginners, as well as taiji instructors, and students of other martial arts.
