    1. I have dabbled on and off mostly off in the arts for a few decades and recently started again, taking tai chi This book has been collecting dust on my bookshelf for decades too With my renewed interest in martial arts I ordered the author s latest version of the book and got to reading.I don t know if any combat secrets are revealed here but this book talks in depth about the mechanics, applications and principles of the 3 internal arts This not a how to book If you are studying the internal art [...]


    2. I had the joy of training in the internal arts with a guy who had learned some of what he did under Frantzis, so I went and re examined this book recently after it had spent a few years sitting on my bookshelves Let s get the biggest problem with it out of the way first it doesn t teach any of the combat secrets of these arts, because there is no part of this big tome that functions as an instructional book Now, I suspect that there are obvious problems with trying to convey the idea of an inter [...]


    3. A fascinating journey into the so called internal martial artsAlthough not exactly a manual to learn internal martial arts, this book sure can pique a reader s interest Much like a collection of anecdotes which I love , thoughts, and insights, it is a great introduction to the martial arts of xingyiquan, taijiquan, and baguazhang, as seen through the author s eyes The author talks of his many varied experiences and of many exceptional people that he met or learned from, making this book quite a [...]


    4. Christians must avoid you can NOT practice divination, gnosticism, visualization, and or playing with psychic abilities in a martial art and still honor God You can not honor God and partake of these things Reliance upon the flesh the fallen nature and its corrupt desires for power and advantage over its perceived enemies is incompatible with a Christian worldview and faith in Christ Jesus The bottom line is what part of love your neighbor as yourself do you fulfill by practicing the power of in [...]


    5. One of my top five This truly awesome book, encapsulates a rare look inside the journey from the external martial arts into the profoundness that is the internal martial arts One of the best books on the martial arts ever written HAs fantastic sections on the development of skills and the differences between internal and external styles A rare book with a wealth of information within its covers.


    6. Master BK Frantzis has written a comprehensive treatise on the Chinese Internal Arts, each style with its own methods of nei jing He elaborates on each system, bagua, tai chi, and hsing i, offering a brief history, and a comparison of the systems A thoroughly enjoyable read for students of these arts


    7. Another book I ve reread many times over the years.A real comprehensive and informed approach to the internal arts.Most of these sort of books try to obfuscate the subject but BTK is a real authority.Still one of the clearest presentations on this fascinating material available.Would not hesitate to recommend any of his works.


    8. This book is what caused me to study internal kungfu and partially the reason I am getting my Master s in Chinese Medicine This is no other book out there like this It is truly a classic and catches the true essence of the Internal Martial Arts, healing, the nature of spirit, and the Warrior heart.


    9. He explains on page 73 that Ba Gua is the purest form of Taoist Martial Arts Shaolin Temple or monastery in China is the legendary birthplace of Chinese martial arts.
