Life Span Development is an area of psychological research. It looks at an individual's journey from birth to death and the challenges along the way. I can't think of a more important topic. Consequently, this book will discuss Life Span Development from multiple perspectives. It will look at it from the perspective of my martial arts teacher, Daniel Yu Wang. Daniel survived the Cultural Revolution, one of the great tragedies of the modern era. It will look at this topic from a philosophical perspective, the theory of yin and yang and the martial art it inspired, Tai Chi Chuan. Finally, it will look at life span from a common sense and psychological perspective. Hopefully, these multiple lenses will give the reader a deeper understanding of what it means to be fully human.The purpose of this second book with my Tai Chi teacher Daniel Yu Wang is to take the practice of Tai Chi Chuan, its underlying philosophy and training principles and apply them to an area of psychological inquiry. Why psychological? Well I was trained as a psychologist so it is an area I am familiar with. I could have chosen any area. As I said in my earlier book one of the reasons Daniel was so attracted to Tai Chi is it is based on a philosophical system, the theory of yin and yang. I wanted to see if Tai Chi and this system could help me understand things other than fighting. Could it help me understand psychology? Could it help me understand life? Could it take me from the particular to general. There are only so many things one can remember. In other words, could it help me find some truth. Because fighting, along with eating, having sex and maybe praying are among man's oldest activities, it might be a good place to look. If Tai Chi explains more than just combat, it is like finding a key. A key you can use to unlock other doors or mysteries.

With over 40 years of experience Paul Brecher gives clear and insightful explanations of the Chinese Martial, Healing and Spiritual Arts. In this book he brings together all his knowledge and experience of Taoist Martial Arts. To help you to bring Yin Yang balance to your health and your life and make progress on your martial arts journey. Training in the Chinese Martial Arts brings three great benefits, good health, martial skill and understanding Tao - The Way. BOOK REVIEW by Paul Caswell This martial arts text covers all aspects of training, the theoretical, the historical and the technical. It is a rich and essential tool for anyone wanting to learn Old Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan, Pa Kua Chang and Wu Tang Shan Nei Jia Chuan. There are no fancy stories, self-publicizing images or unnecessary material. Just excellent quality teaching notes, written simply and easy to follow. Don't be fooled in thinking that this is a how-to manual. It is a tool designed to build deeper learning and supplement good old-fashioned hard work done in class and at home. As a former student of Paul's in the late 90's I only wish that I had this manual available to me as a student. I remember trying to write my own detailed notes for the Cannon Fist Form and some of the Wu Tang forms. It took me more time than necessary; it took me away from training and into writing about training. This text that Paul has produced now means that students do not need to waste time making unnecessary training notes. Everything in his system is in this text. It fills in many gaps, answers many questions and acts as both a reminder for learning that has taken place, and a signpost for future learning paths. This book has shown me how much I had learned in my time with Paul but also how much I had not learned. Don't be fooled into thinking that Paul is a mere tai chi instructor turned writer, metaphorically pontificating from his hand carved wooden throne, slowly caressing his long white beard, observing his students from a far in the training hall and thus with distain. In many ways, this text reflects Paul's characteristics both as a teacher, a healer and a man. He is epitomizes the Yin Yang symbol. He (and thus the text) is a vast font of internal martial and healing art knowledge, but he does not want to hold onto this information and slowly give it to you like masters of old. This text should be likened to an encyclopedia of all he teaches. No secrets, no special techniques. But it is only a compliment to regular training with Paul. This training manual demonstrates that Paul is tenacious and utterly committed to his training and thus developing his students. He smiles when he trains and does not take himself too seriously. This training manual is just that, a manual, not a doctrine to be worshipped. Paul is a formidable yet humble martial artist, he believes in what he does, what he teaches. More importantly, just like the material in this text, he can expertly and clearly demonstrate material in class. Paul is a writer second and a martial artist first. He can subtly evade your attacks, penetrate your defenses and make you wonder why you did not feel anything until his fingertips are millimeters from your eyes and throat whilst smiling as you realize what has just happened. I would whole-heartedly recommend this book to anybody with an interest in the Chinese Martial Arts and those on the path learning Paul's material, beginner or advanced. Note the emphasis on the word martial. This text, like Paul is a shining example of the chuan, the fist, the kung fu, the hard work being both an integral and primary aspect of the Chinese Internal Martial Arts. Paul Caswell 2009
