If you look at my other reviews for YMAA materials you'll see that I don't readily gush about Taiji books. That said, this is the book I would want to use if I was starting fresh with the Yang Long Form.
After three years of daily practice in Cheng Man-ch'ing form (a martial context) I was compelled to attend a class in the Yang long form. The one hour a week class included a competent teacher leading the form in a health context and offering very general correction, mostly adjusting my CMC habits to her version of Old Yang. Without this book I'm afraid I would have had little more to go on.
This material is everything a newcomer would need short of personal instruction. The stepping directions are offered for each image. There are very helpful arrows showing lines of movement and expressed energy. There is a section with martial applications and plenty on applicable Qigong.
The production values for the book are quite good. The cover has a very classy texture and the printing and proofreading are good enough to be invisible. I only mention them here because I've complained in the past.
I've also grumbled silently in the past about frequent references to other YMAA books. It often seemed in the past that I would need to buy another book if I was going to find the information to continue down an interesting path. Not so here. There is enough on each subject to give a full meal. Other books are referenced but only to supplement. This IS as complete a guide as one could want in a single volume.
In my Ba duan jin review I recommended choosing either the book or DVD. For this book I would actually recommend both to anybody who does not have a teacher. If you are considering the video, I have heard it repeated that Dr. Yang's Taiji is a bit different from the common classical style. You may wish to research this further if it is a concern to you.
Apparently this book also has a companion DVD that goes with it, but sadly I didn't receive that DVD, so I won't be able to provide any kind of reference to it, but if it is anything like Dr. Yang's previous DVD's, and I am sure that it is, then it will be another in a long line of excellent DVD's by Dr. Yang and YMAA.
This book is divided into five main chapters, with several sub-chapters included under each main chapter. The first chapter was really quite interesting as Dr. Yang takes you through quite a bit of history concerning; China, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and it's history both in the East and in the West. Dr. Yang also spends some time explaining the differences between Northern and Southern styles, as well as, internal and external styles, hard styles and soft styles, and the four categories of fighting skills. He then spends a considerable amount of time discussing the history and benefits of Taijiquan, which is the intended purpose of this book.
Chapter two focuses on Qi, Qigong Taijiquan with categories of Qigong, various schools and training theories and the relationship between Qigong and Taijiquan.
Chapter three focuses solely on the Taijiquan Thirteen Postures, of which there are the eight doors and five steppings.
Chapter four introduces you to the traditional Yang style Taijiquan, which is very informative and the amount of knowledge contained in this section pertaining to this particular style is exceptional.
The book then concludes with chapter five, which is primarily a glossary of Chinese names and terms translated into English.
This is definitely a MUST HAVE book for all Tai Chi Chuan practitioners, especially those interested in the classical Yang style of Tai Chi Chuan.
Creator of numerous books and DVD's.
The form takes 3 years to learn correctly and 3 more to begin to understand the Yin and Qi through proper breathing while doing the form. Highly recommended if you want to go far beyond mere health benefits and into the self defense aspect. It is not for the faint of heart as it demands great patience and perseverance to master...ten years to be exact....maybe longer if you do just the video and book.
