Prior to publishing this bestselling book, Chee Soo was already known in his native London (and worldwide) as a popular teacher of Taoist arts; he had even collaborated with Ray Austin—a student of his—in developing the kung fu style featured in the popular television show "The Avengers". This book covers basic principles and exercises of "Lee-style" T'ai Chi Ch'uan, with lessons on energy and health, body control, stances, and form. Accompanied by b/w photo-illustrations throughout.
