5.0 out of 5 stars Lucid and Insightful.....
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 30, 2019
This book helped me understand the history of Taichi and the mystery of the lesser known Zhao Bao Taichi, the original unmodified and earliest form of Taichi passed down from its originator Zhang San Feng.

The English translation clearly explains the complicated Taichi theories in this book that were written by famous Taichi masters generations ago in ancient Chinese style that would make it very challenging to otherwise understand. Even as a native Chinese reader myself, I used the English translation as reference whenever I can't quite grasp the meaning in these ancient Chinese articles.

What I like most are the large clear pictures illustrating the break-down of each form in the complete Zhao Bao 75 forms. Accuracy is very important in the practicing of forms. I use this book as my Zhao Bao Taichi textbook all the time.

I also enjoy very much reading the stories written by some of Master Peng’s students, ranging from beginner to senior levels, sharing their personal learning experiences. These authentic experiences are very encouraging to me as a Taichi lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ZhaoBao Tai Chi KungFu book
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 14, 2019
This was exactly what I needed!!! This book is fantastic. It was easy to understand and follow the instruction.

I’ve always had a great interest in martial arts especially Taichi. So I read many books and watched videos to learn by myself. This is the best book which clearly teaches you what's the principle of taichi, and what path to follow. It demonstrates different types of forms for both beginners and advanced. This internal style’s kungfu is not just martial arts but also the best way to exercise. Due to the great variety of benefits that Zhaobao tai chi provides, I remain deeply interested in it. I feel that Zhaobao tai chi has something to offer to people of all ages ranging from children to the elderly, male and female.

The author Master Peng is very famous in taichi area. He is the 12th generation of the Zhao Bao tai chi. I am really happy to see he published this wonderful book. Cannot wait to learn more from this wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely one of the best books about Tai Chi!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on July 15, 2019
Bought this as a gift for my father, who is suffering from constant backache. He says this book is perfect! There are numerous detailed illustrations of each movement in both English and Mandarin. My dad can follow the movements step by step at home. Another interesting fact of the book is the introduction of “Push hands”. It teaches self defense, how to react when someone suddenly attacks you. I thought that is quite useful to know. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes to improve his health through tai chi.
