Product Overview

This seminal work, by the first Westerner ever to win the world championship in a full-contact martial arts tournament, draws on the internal disciplines of Tai Chi Ch'uan, Aikido, Pa Kua Ch'ang, and other arts to offer a new way of looking at who we are and how we live in the world. Peter Ralston calls his teaching Cheng Hsin, loosely translated as "integrity of being" or "your true nature". The principles, paradoxes, and mind-body exercises in this extraordinary book show how to harness the life energy inside us -- and achieve effortless power in everything we do. Cheng Hsin explains how to be fully involved in whatever you're doing, especially during confrontation.
