This small manual has not many pretencies. Its goal is to teach the Yang short form and this is exactly what it does. The author's teaching method is smart and effective. Contrary to many other TaiChi manuals, it clearly explains how to distribute the weight among the feet and how to match the breathing to the movements. An excellent complement to TaiChi actual training.
At last! Help in simple language to introduce and instruct beginners in this lovely and healthful form of gentle exercise.Robert Parry understands how to take the confusing element out of tai chi and put it in the reach of anyone who is serious about the form. Step by step instructions are easily understood due to the author's simplfied illustrations and text. I recommend this book to everyone who is looking for an informative,comprehensive, easy to understand guide book for tai chi.
