The hardest battles we fight aren't just physical -- they're with our mind and our spirit, our weaknesses and our desires. But we can reach enlightenment and calm through the body by practicing the internal martial arts, in which a pre-arranged series of movements flow smoothly one into another, requiring virtually no muscle tension at all. Train in one of these remarkable disciplines -- from the well-known tai chi chuan to lesser-known methods like Hsing I Chuan -- and experience the incredible difference it will make in your body, mind, and spirit. You'll discover, in this rich and detailed discussion, a variety of philosophies, approaches, and techniques, accompanied by photographs of postures, positions, and exercise combinations to choose from. Develop your internal energy, and practice moving meditations, techniques for strengthening the will and relaxing, and proper breathing. Explore the principles and the set movement patterns behind 6 ancient styles:
-- Tai chi chuan, the most popular martial art in the world, and useful for maintaining health and youthfulness.
-- The eight basic trigram palms of Baguazhang. In its more advanced form, its beautiful swirling, rotating, and twisting movements invigorate the circulation and stimulate healing energy.
-- Hsing I'Chuan, which has twelve animal forms that cultivate different skills and develop different parts of the body
-- Aikido, the "way of spiritual harmony".
-- Xiao Ju Tian, "the nine little heavens", which teaches practitioners how they are one with the universe, containing all the spiritual elements of the world.
-- The highly demanding Qui Disruption forms -- the most concealed of all the internal martialart forms and possibly the originator of all.

Your mental outlook and life force will expand and grow as never before
