This book was originally written by Dr. Ma Yueh Liang and Wu Ying Hua, and later Dr. Zee Wen helped translate it into English. The practice methods of Wu style push hands are presented. The book includes pictures of the late Teacher Ma Yueh Liang with his son, Ma Jiang Bao, performing the Wu style Taichichuan techniques.
Presented are the key Wu style Taichichuan push hands practice methods that apply T'ai Chi as a martial art. Included are details for the single hands, the double hands, the 13 Basic Manipulations, as well as moving steps. Also of interest are the translation of Taichichuan Ching by Chang San-feng, the Song of Pushing Hands, and various commentaries by top practitioners. The translation gives a glimpse into the character and approach of Ma Yueh Liang--minimalist and sophisticated--who is featured in Bill Moyer's book and documentary series, "Healing and the Mind."
