|This e-book reveals a rare form of Wudang Martial
Art, created during the Ming Dynasty five centuries ago, by the
eighth-generation Zhang Shouxin. As major forms of Wudang school, this
form is particularly recommended for cultivating Qi, building stronger
body and for self-defense. It emphasizes on mind instead of brutal
strength, good at fending off attacking force, but not for
confrontation. The force exerted is like a silk work making a cocoon.

with Tai Chi Boxing, as in Chen Style one basic theory of training is
the "silk reeling"...
23 Form Taiyi Wuxing includes various martial techniques characterizing
Wudang Boxing such as the 13 Tai Chi Forms but also Five animal
exercises of Hua Tuo, the
legendary doctor in the Eastern
author in this e-book is more focus on providing explicit
pictures of Wudang techniques than long theoretical presentation...

practice kungfu and Taoist Taichi for more than three years, the
techniques of Wudang Taiyi are a good complement to perfect
my daily training. I just regret that the pictures are only B&W
but the quality is ok. I hope than more e-books on Wudang will be
published soon for the interest of everyone, as I really believe that
they are the original style of Taoist Tai Chi."
