Wu Style Taijiquan
This book is the best source of Wu Style Taijiquan written to date. Grandmaster Wang, Peisheng (1919-2004) was the president of the Beijing Wu Style Taiji Quan Association. Grandmaster Wang, Peisheng was a direct descendant of the founder of Wu style Taijiquan, Great Grandmaster Yang, Luchan. Grandmaster Wang, Peisheng was directly instructed from Master Maozhai (1862-1940),, and his master, Master Quan You who had learned from the Great Grandmaster of the Yang style of Taijiquan, Great Grandmaster Yang, Luchan. This book is written with meticulous detail! It is highlighted with some pictures of the masters, however, there are no other pictures of the form, but it is illustrated with very detailed line drawn pictures that are easier to follow than a pitcture where the background colors can blend into the picture and create distortions. Learning any style of Taiji from a book is difficult and it is highly recommended that one seek out a teacher as close to the direct descendant as possible. However, if you have a teacher who is highly qualified in this style of Taiji, then using this book, along with your personal instruction, will be a great help with your training.
