    can you learn anything from this book?
    i have never seen it other then in advertisements,
    my feeling is that it is harmless porno.
    if you are satisfied with it,then it was worth the investment.

    That's hilarious!

    I remember when Nude Yoga was panned in Yoga Journal. That one makes more sense to me
    Nude Tai Chi - that definately makes my xmas MA book list right next to Honor Blackman's Self defense book and Stephen Hayes book of Ninja poetry!
    Thanks L D S, you made my morning chuckle!

    Thanks all

    I was hoping for more serious replies. Some of the replies are really too funny.

    Who can tell some more about this book. Or do I have to ask overaged hippies about it?
    Is it safe to read this book without being stoned?

    Overage Hippie at your service.
    This book came out while I was in college, in my second year of Kung-fu studies.(Hsing-I)
    It is pretty lackluster and disappointing. The Tai chi is of the Chen Man Ching variety, if I recall correctly. But the players ARE nude as promised.
    I remember my instructors wife getting a big kick out of this book when she heard about it. We all had a good laugh over it.

    Nude Tai Chi

    This is a brief book. It does not give much explanation of the postures, which is a short Yang Style Form. The pictures are indeed nude, but that in no way provides any additional insight into Tai Chi. You could have done the same thing by simply having the models wear typical body forming dance or Yoga outfits.

    The pictures are also limited, usually only one photo per posture, so transitions are not shown.

    All in all a harmless book. Interesting to add to your collection as a curiosity, but don't expect to "learn" much Tai Chi from it.

    Dude, if I tried that in the park where I do my forms, I'd get so busted it isn't even funny.

    First you get good, then you get fast, then you get good and fast.

    No brag, just fact.

    To make matters worse one of my students bought the video.

    Their were 3 women on different level platforms performing tai chi (not good tai chi mind you) but moving meditation which is what they called it. As "taooftachi" said it is quite insufficent and does nothing for the art of tai chi but more a advertising add to promote non martial artists to go out and buy it. kind like having women lay on top of a cars to boost sales. Do not buy it thinking that you are going to learn anything other than what 3 nude women trying to play tai chi look like.

    Hey LDS

    I'm an over aged hippie too, and this title got past me. Maybe all that stuff they said about memory loss was legit.
    We need to make a nude wushu video.... imagine the slow motion sequences! And it could take rope dart to a whole new level...
