About This Item

Blue Mountain Feng Shui Instit, 2009. Hardcover. Very Good. 0x0x0. Master Ping-Siang Tao's Taiji Push Hands how-to. Bound in flexible tan vellum with gold page ribbon. Text in English and Chinese. Illustrated with color and black-and-white photos. Review excerpt: "The famous masters of earlier generations were able to throw attackers away as soon as they contacted them. People thought that there was magic power in their hands. Master Ping Siang Tao, renowened for his mastery of the subtleties of Push Hands training, wrote this book to record the insights he gained through a lifetime of practice and teaching. Without any mystification, he sets out the methods and goals of Push Hands practice in terms of basic principles of physics: momentum, inertia, and leverage. At the same time, he shows how these principles reinforce the traditional account of Chinese natural philosophy in terms of Yin and Yang, and softness overcoming hardness. What is practiced in Push Hands? What makes Push Hands practice effective? What are the psychological principles in Push Hands? What should you aim at in practicing Push Hands? In this brief, direct book, Master Tao explains what Push Hands is, why and how it should be practiced, and how it fits into martial arts training. Scarce. 230 numbered pages plus two pages of publisher's ads. 8 1/2" x 6". Tight, unmarked copy with minimal shelf wear and slightly bumped corners. A unusually presentable copy of an important Chinese martial arts instructional. Photographs of or additional information about this item are available on request. All inquiries answered promptly.
