My Favourite Books
I love this one. Wu style Taijiquan by Wang Peisheng & Zeng Weiqi.
As you can see it is somewhat battered and it is a book I keep going back to. The information in it is brilliant and the line drawings are superb. I love the way the applications are so clearly drawn and explained.
Another interesting feature is the way the postures are given a self feeling ,i.e.., " right foot firmly rooted in ground. There is wriggling in right palm and sole."
The pushing hands routines are clearly descried and illustrated and the section by Master Yang Yuting is priceless. The ISBN is 962-238-015-8 It was published in 1983 so I'm not sure if it is still in print.
