Tai Chi Ch'uan 24 Forms for Curious Learners fills a void by offering a volume to which both students and practitioners of 24 Forms can refer to enhance their knowledge of how to do 24 Forms. It's unique in that it's built upon the 10 principles that should guide all tai chi practice plus it offers advice on how to use visualization as a tai chi performance aid. Tai Chi Ch'uan 24 Forms is the most popular tai chi form. Millions of people throughout the world practice it. No newcomers to tai chi, Andy Ma began studying tai chi in Beijing when he was 12 years old and began teaching it in 1985. Howard Rosenberg received his introduction to tai chi in 1976 and began studying 24 Forms with Mr. Ma in the mid-1990s. Tai chi is not just an exercise, it's a mind-body exercise. Diligent and informed practice can improve your mindfulness, coordination, concentration, posture, and balance. Further, its practice can enhance your physical well being, reduce stress levels, help practitioners to lose weight, improve muscle tone, lower blood pressure, and strengthen immune systems. This book can help you to advance on the road toward better health, a journey that should always begin under the tutelage of a qualified instructor. As Ron Perfetti wrote in the book's Foreword, "one could take what is presented in this book and feel confident that the following years, if one applied oneself diligently, would be fruitful in many, many ways." And Joe Berger, a tai chi student, commented that "especially rewarding is the discussion on the use of 'visualization.'"
