The Taijiquan & Qi Gong Dictionary

Are you a book lover like me? Then you probably have many of the best Tai Chi books, Qi Gong books and TCM books.

I like to read through them, sitting on my couch. But sometimes there are words or phrases I don’t understand. And as much as I love the Internet, I also love to have a paper book to cruise through.

About a year ago, I figured that I needed a dictionary. And even though I found many glossaries and lists online and in books, I could not find a dictionary. At least none that was dedicated specifically to Taijiquan and Qi Gong.

Thus I decided to write it myself! And after months of researching, reading, learning, contemplating, and tearing my hair out, it is finally here:

The Taijiquan & Qi Gong Dictionary - especially for Tai Chi beginners

I have to admit that I am quite proud and happy that I can finally tell you about it. 🙂  If you want to know what’s in it, look at this short description:

The Taijiquan & Qi Gong Dictionary

  • covers words, phrases, concepts from Taijiquan, Qi Gong, TCM, and meditation
  • ranges from A (e.g. Abdominal Breathing, Ao Bu, Attack the tiger) via M (e.g. Ma Bu, Men Ren, Moxibustion) to Z (e.g. Zai Chui, Zhong Kui, Zuo Wang)
  • includes the most important numbers: 1-10, 100, 1000 etc.
  • refers to many form movements in Chinese and English
  • explains various relevant acupuncture points
  • names many present and past masters
  • all in all it is 127 pages about Taijiquan and Qi Gong

Obviously I hope that the dictionary will benefit you and all the other Tai Chi and Qi Gong beginners and enthusiasts who put it onto their shelf. And I really hope that you will work with this book. Go into more detail for those things that are important to you. Add your own definitions and interpretation.
