    DescriptionDeveloped over many centuries, Tai Chi Chuan is one of the treasures of Chinese culture, incorporating the principles of Taoist philosophy with the accumulated knowledge of the traditional martial arts. Wu Style is known as the "three-in-one exercise," invigorating the mind, the internal energy (qi), and the body. At all times the practitioner focuses on using mental strength, not raw force. With the mind, one directs the qi, and with the qi, one directs the whole body. Continuous round movements are made without ever breaking or interrupting the flow of internal energy.Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan describes the origin and philosophy of Tai Chi Chuan, and then details its multiple health benefits. Step-by-step instruction in the practice of the Tai Chi Chuan solo form (including many photographs) is presented, followed by a chapter describing the two-person exercise known as Push Hands, for which the Wu Style is famous.
