This book is a veritable treasure for T'ai-Chi students-the "real thing!" Profound principles many teachers don't even know about, and most will never teach. Ray Hayward has superbly put together the teachings of Master Liang (which he spent years gathering) into a very accessible and readable form. This is real " Old World" T'ai-Chi Ch'uan-the essence of the Masters. Must-reading for serious students of the art.
-Paul Gallagher, Author of Drawing Silk: A T'ai-Chi Training Manual, Founder of Deer Mountain Taoist Academy, herbalist, scholar and T'ai-Chi Ch'uan Instructor.
During over two decades of study with the T'ai-Chi Master T.T. Liang, Ray Hayward, Liang's disciple, made copious notes and recorded many private sessions on tape. This most enlightening book enables the T'ai-Chi student to acquire a vast body of knowledge, most of it in the Master's own words.
-Joanne Von Blon, T'ai-Chi Ch'uan Instructor, Second Degree Black Belt in Shotokan Karate, President and Chairperson of the Board of Directors of Twin Cities T'ai-Chi Ch'uan Studio.
Whether a novice or advanced student, this collection by Ray Hayward of Master Liang's teachings is a string of pearls. Connected yet distinct, each lesson is concise yet filled with insight. This book is a reference that all students of Tai Chi can return to year after year and always come away encouraged, challenged, and sometimes enlightened.
