The Way of the Spiritual Warrior
Soft Style Martial Arts for Body, Mind and SpiritBook - 1998
They're like moving meditations! The internal martial arts--which involve flowing motion with no muscle tension--teach us ways of healing and of developing better physical, mental, and emotional balance. Train in one of these remarkable disciplines: * Tai chi chuan: the most popular martial art, useful for maintaining health and youthfulness. * The eight basic trigram palms of Baguazhang. In its advanced form, rotating and twisting movements invigorate the circulation and stimulate healing. * Hsing I Chuan: twelve animal forms that develop different skills and parts of the body. * Aikido, the "way of spiritual harmony." * Xiao Ju Tian, "the nine little heavens," teaches practitioners how they are one with the universe. * The highly demanding Qui Disruption forms--possibly the originator of all internal martial arts. With these enlightening, spirit-enhancing arts, your body and mind will become calmer, clearer, and healthier.
