the Tai Chi Way chronicles
the unfolding relationship between Master Wang and Peter Uhlmann.
Peter is only interested in learning the classic movements. However,
he is is soon captivated by Master Wang's martial abilities and
intimate knowledge of chi. Peter begins a life of study, learning
to incorporate chi energy and spirit into his physical activities,
utilizing Master Wang's seven principles of tai chi.
In his friendship with Master Wang, Peter learns
more than the tai chi form. He realizes that tai chi can guide
him in daily routines and relationships. He learns about Chinese
culture and traditions and the unique and sometimes difficult
master-student relationship. Eventually he becomes Master Wang's
and a strong bond develops between them.
The tai chi principle of letting go becomes
a major theme in Peter's life, especially when facing a life threatening
illness. Flowing the Tai Chi Way will provide readers with important
insights into master-student dynamics and proper martial art principles
