Taiji, more often spelled 'tai chi', has five traditional styles, of which Chen is the oldest. This practical guide teaches the condensed 38-posture form of the art, as developed by the current head of Chen Tai Chi, Chen Xiaowang, which incorporates aspects of both 'old frame' and 'new frame' traditions. The movements are demonstrated with step-by-step photographs and the book also contains examples of fighting applications based on the 38-movement form.
