In the last seven centuries, many songs and poems have been composed about Taijiquan. These have played a major role in preserving the knowledge and wisdom of the masters, although in many cases, the identity of the authors and the dates of origin have been lost. For the last 20 years, Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming has translated many of these documents and he believes numerous are incomplete due to forgotten oral secrets, the narrow focus of the authors and many missing documents. Taijiquan Theory of Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming is an attempt to gather together the various theories on Taijiquan in one complete text. This book is structured with songs and poems, followed by the original Chinese text and any interpretation of the passage. All of the songs and poems have been written by Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming. 'The contents are profound and sincere. His [the author's] intention is to publicise the exercises and promote the skills of Taijiquan so practitioners can be led onto the correct path' - Grandmaster Li, Mao-Ching (from the foreword). 'I conclude that the theory discussed is very deep and clear. With regard to the scientifically minded practitioners, this book can be a complete guide for their comprehension. The quality of its structuring is a rarity' - Abraham Liu (from the foreword), senior student of Grandmaster Cheng Man-Ching.
