The Heart Treasure of Taijiquan

 Following on from my previous post, the book "The Heart Treasures of Taijiquan" is a translation of Master Ren Gang's teachings, translated by Mattias Daly.

I'm about halfway through it and it offers insightful expositions of principles. Although based on Yang style the principles are universal.

This is a great book (I'm not being paid to promote it) and as some might say "A must have".

It is on Amazon - see:
