The chapters in this anthology present an encompassing perspective of how some Chinese martial art styles — and most significantly taijiquan — developed and evolved along with deep rooted traditions of spirituality and the quest for health and longevity. Much in this volume deals with Daoist theories and practices, particularly its influences ranging from human energetics (qigong) and other physical exercises (daoyin), to practical combative arts.
