Here's your chance to take the next step in your tai chi journey.

Martial applications found within tai chi chuan are a direct link to your tai chi as a form of self-defense. When you study the martial side of tai chi, you can become proficient in a variety of high-level skills, including sensing, neutralizing, yielding, striking, chin na, and even throwing.

  • If you know a tai chi form, you are going to discover the essence of your movements by becoming aware of their martial applications.
  • If you are practicing tai chi pushing hands, you will greatly improve your skills with this understanding of martial applications.
  • If you are ready, you are going to love the amazing tai chi fighting set. This fully choreographed set (requires a partner) will combine all your tai chi skills into one 5-minute routine.

It's like having three books in one. Includes:

  1. Martial applications for the Yang-style long form
  2. Martial applications for Yang-style tai chi pushing hands
  3. The complete Yang-style tai chi fighting set

For any style of tai chi chuan, this book will be important for practitioners who wish to develop a deeper understanding and advanced skills.

  • Learn how to analyze the forms and defense applications in your tai chi, gaining higher-level knowledge of your style.
  • Discover the martial applications of Yang style. These insights will give you greater understanding of your own art.
  • Find inspiration. Master Yang's writing will inspire you to investigate the martial applications of your tai chi style.

This edition includes an easy-to-follow layout. Each technique is presented in four to six large photographs with detailed instructions on how to perform the movements. Motion arrows are used on the photographs to help you execute the movements correctly.

About Dr. Jwing-Ming Yang

Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming started his Gongfu training at the age of 15 under the Shaolin White Crane Master Cheng, Gin Gsao. Dr. Yang became an expert in the White Crane style of Chinese martial arts. With the same master he also studied Qin Na, Tui Na and Dian Xue massages, and herbal treatment. At the age of 16, Dr. Yang began the study of Taijiquan under Master Kao, Tao. Dr. Yang's tai chi can be traced back to the Yang family through Master Kao's teacher Yue, Huanzhi, an indoor disciple of Yang, Chengfu. After learning from Master Kao, Dr. Yang continued his study and research of Taijiquan. Dr. Yang has mastered the Taiji barehand sequence, pushing hands, the two-man fighting sequence, Taiji sword, Taiji saber, and Taiji Qigong. Dr. Yang has been involved in Chinese Gongfu since 1961. During this time, he has spent 13 years learning Shaolin White Crane, Shaolin Long Fist, and Taijiquan. Dr. Yang has more than thirty years of instructional experience.
