Tai Chi for Health: The 24 simplified forms


In 1956, the Chinese Sports Committee developed a simplified version of Tai Chi Chuan based primarily on the Yang style. This simplified form is a series of 24 forms that can be performed in about five or six minutes. It was designed as an easily learned series of movements that could be used by anyone to improve their health. Today, the 24 Forms are played by Tai Chi Chuan enthusiasts throughout the world. In 2008, the 24 simplified forms will be demonstrated in the openning of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games by a group of 2008 people.

My 24 simplified tai chi form book is just listed in Amazon.com under the author name: Cheng Zhao

For the student who wants to begin studying Tai Chi Chuan, the challenge is learning the forms correctly. Without a qualified teacher, many would-be students are left with incomplete or confusing instructions as to how Tai Chi Chuan is performed. It is the intention of this book and DVD to illustrate and teach how to perform the 24 Forms in a manner that is accurate while being easy and fun to learn. It is hoped that this book and DVD can be not only a self teaching tool, but can also serve as a reference for the experienced Tai Chi Chuan enthusiast.Tai Chi Chuan is a supreme martial art that has become a supreme method of physical, mental, and spiritual exercise. The study of Tai Chi Chuan is the study of life itself. It is a martial art that can be a life art.

The teaching and learning DVDs of Tai Chi Hand and Sword forms are available upon request:
