Based on the obvious uses of the energy of movement and physical strength, external martial arts present a common sense method of self-defense training. The internal martial arts are far fewer in number, there being only three main schools: taijiquan (tai chi chaposuan), xingyiquan (hsing i chaposuan) and baguazhang (pa kua chang). The training methods seem more mysterious because internal martial artists move very slowly or not at all. Because they are subtler and deeper, they are less accessible to the majority of people, who simply donapost have the time or desire for deep and prolonged study. Within the schools of the internal family, there is a further polarization. The majority of internal family teachers and practitioners, like their counterparts in the external schools, still emphasize the practice of forms, the choreographed sequences of movements, as the path to mastery. They rely on the practice of stillness and postural meditation only as an adjunct or complementary practice. On the other hand, the minority current within the internal schools de-emphasizes the practice of movement and forms and in some cases reject them altogether in favor of the exclusive practice of stillness in postural meditation as the path to mastery. What makes the internal or meditative martial arts both internal and meditative is precisely the use of stillness as opposed to movement. In summary, it can be said that the external martial arts are based on the energy of movement, whereas the internal martial arts are based on the movement of energy. The aposWarriors of Stillnessapos is a trilogy, which investigates the relationship between the Chinese meditative and martial arts. This first volume explores the relationship between the meditative and martial arts within the taijiquan system as practiced by Grandmaster Cai Songfang from Shanghai and Canton. 1.
