    Chi Kung: Training for Life, Health, and Energy, Essential Instruction from Wu Style Tai Chi Chuan, by Gerald A. Sharp and Patricia Kessler

    Wirebound, Chipboard Cover, 130 pp. Over 300 illustrations.

    This book covers the entire Chi Kung practice of the Wu Style T'ai Chi system as founded and developed by Wu Chuan You and Wu Jianquan. It's ideally best joined with the 3-Part Video Series "Chi Kung of the Wu Style: Eight Methods & Five Elements, and is available on our Specials page as a book and video combo at a discount.

    However, this book can, literally, stand on its own, the unique design allows it to do just that, as it can be folded back and stood up, thereby allowing a practitioner to follow along with the individual postures. We kind of think of it as an "easel book."
