  2. Tai Chi: The Supreme Ultimate exercise for health, sport, & self defense

    Tai Chi: The Supreme Ultimate exercise for health, sport, & self defense

    $9.99

    This book introduces T'ai-chi as a means to a healthier life, as a sport, and as a means of self-defense. It is a complete step-by-step manual for the beginner. It will enable him, with conscientious practice, to master the sequence of thirty-seven postures that make up the T'ai-chi solo exercise. The directions are clear-cut and easy to follow. More than 275 photographs, together with 122 foot-weighting diagrams, guarantee a ready understanding of the correct procedure. A convenient fold-out illustrates the thirty-seven postures in a continuous sequence.
    The main emphasis in this introductory manual is on T'ai-chi as a superior way to healthful living. But T'ai-chi, when practiced with a partner, is an enjoyabe sport, and its movements form the basis for an unexcelled system of self-defense. The book therefore gives both of these important aspects of T'ai-chi their due share of attention and shows the student how to progress from exercise to sport to self-defense with the maximum of efficiency.

    In addition, the authors furnish interesting and informative sidelights on T'ai-chi and its history, including thumbnail sketches of famous masters and, for the first time in English, a translation of the basic T'ai-chi document known as the "T'ai-chi Ch'uan Classics." Learn More

  10. Once a Marine

    Once a Marine

    $16.99

    The former enlisted Marines whose stories you will read in this book have a common thread. The common thread is that they became one of the few, the proud, the Marines. They joined and entered the Vietnam war when their country called. They fought and returned home to adjust to normal lives by themselves. These are the life stories, told in their own words, of how Marine Corps vets came home, built families, businesses and are living the American dream today. Many still live their lives today with the same traditions and values taught to them by the Marine Corps and have adjusted after the traumatic experience of a war. Marine Corps values are easy to state as: Honor, Courage, and Commitment. The Marine Corps defines these values in the following way: -Honor as demonstrating integrity in all one does, and accepting responsibility and accountability for one's actions. - Courage as doing the right thing, in the right way, and for the right reasons. - Commitment as devotion to the Corps and one's fellow Marines. All Marines, former and active duty, live and fight under this same creed. Read about these men who left the Corps and the war behind and used this experience as a stepping stone to success and happiness. Learn More

And perhaps the first, and most valuable lesson in staying safe, is learning how not to look like a victim. How To Defend Yourself is a "must have" acquisition for all personal and community library martial arts collections.
