Editorial Reviews

Review

Located at the intersection of tai chi and life, technique and principle the veteran, beginner, and even nonpractitioner will find wisdom that never descends into cliché. Mr. Kauskas delivers a highly edifying and entertaining cornucopia of anecdote, aphorism, and apocrypha, destined to become a modern classic. - Douglas Wile, Ph.D. (author, T ai Chi s Ancestors: The Making of an Internal Art) --book cover

--book cover

This book allows us to meet that one teacher we all wish we could just spend our entire lives with. We can't help but feel inspired to not just be better martial artists, but better human beings. - Yang Jwing-Ming, Ph.D. (president, YMAA Retreat Center) --book cover

--book cover

. . . informative and entertaining . . . . People who want to learn more about tai chi, or Eastern philosophy in general, will be well served, and those who practice tai chi will find answers to many of their questions in this book. - Ken Van Sickle (author, Taiji Feather Sword) --book cover

From the Inside Flap

“Located at the intersection of tai chi and life, technique and principle—the veteran, beginner, and even nonpractitioner will find wisdom that never descends into cliché. Mr. Kauskas delivers a highly edifying and entertaining cornucopia of anecdote, aphorism, and apocrypha, destined to become a modern classic.” > Douglas Wile, Ph.D. (author, T'ai Chi's Ancestors: The Making of an Internal Art) “. . . informative and entertaining . . . . People who want to learn more about tai chi, or Eastern philosophy in general, will be well served, and those who practice tai chi will find answers to many of their questions in this book.” > Ken Van Sickle (author, Taiji Feather Sword) “Laugh, cringe, and marvel with a young warrior encountering his own issues and blind spots while navigating the labyrinth of martial arts training . . . . our protagonist stumbles and soars in his quest for mastery and enlightenment.” > Tricia Yu (author, Tai Chi Mind and Body) “Jan Kauskas covers all the topics and challenges we face in tai chi practice beyond the physical movements. He shows the entire learning process, written beautifully as dialogue between the student and his master, Laoshi. A really inspiring book for all who are playing tai chi or would like to begin.” > Helmut Oberlack (publisher, Taijiquan & Qigong Journal) “This book allows us to meet that one teacher we all wish we could just spend our entire lives with. We can't help but feel inspired to not just be better martial artists, but better human beings.” >Yang Jwing-Ming, Ph.D. (president, YMAA?Retreat Center)
