This full-colour guidebook is divided into chapters beginning with Introducing Tai Chi, How to Practice, Warm-up Exercises and then leading to the Movements of Tai Chi (which, in this instance, is the 1st Section of the Cheng Man-Ching Hand Form), Partner Exercises & Meditation. Beautifully illustrated with clear, practical visuals that guide you easily through the range of simple and accessible exercises, warm-ups, relaxation and loosening techniques, before going through the steps of the form. Each transition of the form is broken into a number of sequential images, accompanying texts and graphics which point you through then important aspects.
For anyone learning from home, or attending a class, but needing extra guidance on principles and practice TFY is a worthy investment.
