Lee's Latest Translation Effort
I revisited my translation of Yang Chengfu's Ten Essentials. And while I made a few changes to my translation, I focused my efforts on finding the connections between this work, the larger body of tai chi theory, and the even larger world of Chinese philosophy. Enjoy!
You can find all my translations on the Translations page.
We base our work at Rocky Mountain Tai Chi on the "practice tripod" defined by Professor Cheng: form, push hands, and sword.
We also incorporate practice of various qigong sets, fundamental drills, standing meditation, and internal work.
See a description of our classes for more information.
