Slowly Slowly Catch a Monkey £15

Well here we are again only a year after our 2nd book “Up Close and Personal” (UCAP) was let loose on an unsuspecting public. The time between the first and second book was seven years, but you know the old saying “You wait for ages for a bus and then 2 come along together” well that seems to be true about our books.

When we were compiling the chapters for UCAP, we found we had twice as many chapters as was sensible to inflict on you in one go.

It has been said that Tai Chi is the “thinking man’s Martial Art” but it may have been just too much thinking to do in one book; hence “Slowly Slowly Catch the Monkey” was born

Up Close and Personal £15

It has been seven years since we published our first book ‘Views from the back of the class’ and so we thought that maybe it was time to share some further views and experiences from the students and instructors that hopefully will again inspire new and experienced Tai Chi players alike.
The diversity of the articles within this second book, and the people who wrote them, is vast; many of the chapters have been submitted by students and teachers who contributed to the first book and are still with us.

We are hoping, we have, as before, structured the chapters to ensure this tai chi book is a ‘dip in’ easy read, and often light-hearted view of tai chi life.
