Yang Tai Chi Self-Defense -- New eBook Explores Techniques Hidden in Graceful Art
The Yang Tai Chi 24 Form is the most popular Tai Chi form in the world, practiced for health or meditation, but it was designed as a martial art. With 259 photos, a new eBook shows how to do 108 self-defense techniques hidden in Tai Chi movements.
The Yang style Tai Chi 24 Form is practiced by millions of people worldwide every day. Most people practice it for health and meditation, but Tai Chi was designed as a powerful martial art. In the past 350 years, villages in China hired Tai Chi masters to defend them and teach their young men how to fight.
Now, a new Kindle eBook shows self-defense techniques that are hidden inside each movement in the Yang Tai Chi 24 Form. With 259 photos and detailed instructions, the eBook will deepen your understanding of the true intent of the movements in the form.
The eBook, Yang Tai Chi 24 Self-Defense, is written by Ken Gullette, an instructor who won a gold medal performing the Yang 24 Form at the 1990 AAU National Kung-Fu Championships. Ken is celebrating his 40th year in martial arts. He has taught champions and students of all ages.
“I have met many people who practice the Yang 24 with no idea what the movements of the form are designed to do,” says author Ken Gullette. “The movements of Tai Chi were designed to stop an attacker, and they are very effective if you know how to use them.”
The eBook shows 108 different self-defense applications hidden in the movements of the form, including punches, palm strikes, knee strikes and kicks, joint locks, throws and takedowns. It is a complete close-up fighting art.
“It is great to practice the Yang 24 for health, but I believe that if you want to truly understand Tai Chi, you must understand the martial side of the art,” says Gullette. “If you do not know how the movements are used in self-defense, you are practicing an empty art that really is not Tai Chi. The martial applications can tell you a lot about how your body is supposed to move when practicing the form.”
One reviewer who has practiced the Yang Tai Chi 24 Form for years says the eBook increased his knowledge of the form “twofold.”
The eBook costs only $4.99 and you can follow this link to learn more about it on Amazon. It can be read easily by downloading the free Kindle app to any computer, smartphone or tablet, including Android, iPhone and iPad.
