I had the pleasure of meeting Waysun Liao when studying with Master Greg Chapman and found him to be a most impressive figure Whatever doubts one might have about Liao s take on Tai Chi can be immediately dispelled after seeing his first opponent set airborne from no to The way Being a student of Shaolin Tai Chi for several years and having read several books on the subject I found Tai Chi Classics to be one of my favorites Liao explains some of the concepts covered in fee other books This book may be a little too advanced for the novice, but is an excellent reference for those already familiar with Tai Chi concepts.
I highly recommend this book.
I found this book valuable, but not outstanding Waysun Liao is not personally known to me, but according to the sources in this book, he is an avid believer in Cheng Man Ching s perspective on Tai Chi I am in no position to critique one perspective or another, but my take on this book was that it was tinted significantly by Master Cheng s perspective That being said, I have not avidly studied Master Cheng although I intend to read some of his students work , but there was a consistent underlying bias towards one way of looking that I wasn t convinced was originally intended by the classics authors I ll try to explain what I mean in the paragraphs below.
The first section is an abridged history of Tai Chi The next two chapters are on ch i and jing, respecively These two chapters are nice They are Master Liao s the Waysun Liao s knowledge seems to be genuine He has some valuable insights and ideas.
The chapters on the background and history of taiji are somewhat misleading The author vastly oversimplifies the history of Chinese philosophy and collectively calls Taoist, Confucian, Moist, and Buddhist philosophies Tai Chi ideals The section on taiji s martial history takes much the same approach The author never mentions Chen village and offers only a vague interpretation of taijiquan s history.
The most valuable portions of this book are the chapters on qi cultivation and the classics The final sections offer translations and interpretations of three taiji classics, but to my disappointment the author offered no historical background or context for these classics not even a few sentences indicating who the authors were or what their role in taiji history was.
