Description
Professor Cheng Man-Ching regarded a set of five disciplinesthe "five excellences"to be the mark of a well-rounded person: calligraphy, painting, poetry, tai chi, and medicine. Although he is best known for his teachings on the martial arts (in particular, his highly influential adaptation of tai chi), versatility was central to Chengs philosophy of life, and he encourage his students to combine artistry with scholarship. This inspiring book is a commentary on and working compendium of Chengs literary and pictorial interpretations of these subjects. Of interest to aficionados of Chinese art, culture, and history, Master of Five Excellences also offers internal techniques for practitioners of the martial arts, as Hennessy provides an insight into the rarely-glimpsed creative side of Cheng Man-Ching.
