Tai Chi Chuan: Form to Function is a detailed manual for the study of the martial techniques of tai chi chuan. It takes up where Sutton's earlier title, Applied Tai Chi Chuan , left off, by setting out step-by-step the training exercises necessary for the mastery of tai chi chuan as a true combative art. Sutton outlines a well-defined program designed to lead to understanding and mastery of the useful self-defense techniques. Some of the techniques explained include beginning basic execution of hand patterns, complex exercises, training with partners in predetermined push-hands routines, and freestyle push hands sparrin.

Nigel Sutton, a student of martial arts since he was thirteen years old and a direct student of Master Gao Zi Yin of Beijing, Master Tan Ching Ngee of Singapore, and Master Tan Swoh Teng of Malaysia, has taught in the United States, England, and Malaysia. He is the author of Applied Tai Chi Chuan (Tuttle, 1998) and Tai Chi Chuan: Roots and Branches (Tuttle, 1996) and has written articles for most of the major international martial arts magazines.
