“A precious presentation of taijiquan’s essential theory and practice as found in original documents—clarified and enriched by a uniquely qualified author.”
—Michael DeMarco, publisher of Via Media Publishing and the Journal of Asian Martial Arts and instructor at Winged Lion School of Tai Chi
“There are very few good English translations of Chinese martial arts manuals. Mark Chen’s Chen Style Taijiquan Collected Masterworks makes a substantial contribution to the literature on Chinese martial arts in general, and Taiji studies in particular. Both historians and practitioners will gain immensely from consulting his translation and explanatory notes.
—Peter Lorge, Vanderbilt University
