Taijiquan, sometimes referred to as shadow boxing, is one of the most famous branches of Chinese martial arts. Its basic principle is that the whole body must be relaxed, with the emphasis placed on the exertion of the mind instead of muscles. Through relaxation, the body attains a degree of softness, or suppleness, which, as it increases, turns into its opposite, firmness, which recedes into softness again. This alternation of softness and firmness, the one complementing the other, is the underlying process.
The Chen-style taijiquan, which originated in Chenjiangou of Wenxian County, Henan province, is one of the earliest versions of this art. This book comprises two main parts:
1.    The attack-defence art in series I and II of the Chen-style Taijiquan. The actions illustrated here are the most fundamental movements; they do not involve the practising of a whole series.
2.    The 38 forms in the Chen-style taijiquan. They are simple and easy to learn. It takes only 3-4 minutes to do a series.
