Taijiquan Tutelage of Palo Alto Logo


Here are some books and videos that may help students learn the sequence of postures for the traditional Yang style slow form and other aspects of the art. The following list can be used as a reference for your study here at the school. Our opinion is that you don't need these to learn, but we get a lot of questions about books and videos that might help.
