About Tai Chi
As students of Tai Chi Chuan develop an interest in the subject, they start to build up a list of their own favourite books, but for those who are relatively new to the subject it can be quite difficult to know where to start.
Below are some of the books currently available which we think are worth taking a look at. Some are specific to Tai Chi whilst others are classical texts, which present some of the wider philosophical concepts, which underpin the Art.
