Alex Kozma's New Book on Ziranmen

Postby WongYing on Thu Jul 31, 2008 11:48 am

I just received and read through Alex Kozma's new book on Ziranmen and Internal Chinese Martial arts. I not only enjoyed the style of writing, and the content, but find it a very good addition to my library of books on TCMA. Alex's book contains a lot of usefull and insightful comments by a number of Master's within the internal arts, they alone are worth the book, from anecdotal comments on teachers, their views on training, their key points of practice. It is well laid out with many pictures and clear how to explanations on practice.

Well worth the money

aint got one ....

It is a private publishing so there are only a limited number of copies...

I started reading it last night.

The book is loaded with gems of information and gives a real insight into Ziranmen. The translation of Wan Lai Shengs texts are worth the price alone but the interview with Serge Augier is also a real gem ... there is also alot of good information on Chen Yuen Sans old Taiji system and how his style does things which will be very interesting to Taiji people.

As with some of alex's other books the production isnt up to the scratch of Kumars pollished books or other mass produced titles .. meirly because alex funds the production himself not a big publishing house, But the information is really what you pay for in a book and this one is full of valuable stuff not available else where.

i will be reading it proper over the weekend ...

contact Alex directly at [email protected] if ya want a copy .... i know there are not many .. so be quick!!

cheers

its out-
now all i have to do is wait for my copy to arrive in the mail


i second the recommendation for alex's books- always a lot of good stuff in them...

i really enjoyed "beyond the mysterious gate"
(some info in there changed the way i look at the posture ward off- i think that was from Chen Yuen Sans old Taiji system- and if this new book has more info that is great)

also the "Inner Path of the Warrior"
had some really good info in it that helped me fill in some gaps and gave me a little perspective...

I want to get it, but how do you you pay for it ?

I don't even know what a British Pound is !

Can I send a U.S. Postal Money Order ?

Guys got my copy of Alexs new book on friday and have to say its a great read and worth it just for the interview with Serge, let alone all the other gems put in by Alex. I really cant recommend it enough its rare these days to find stuff like this and if you have even a vauge interest in the martial or qigong then its something for your bookshelf.

Order it guys then we can look forward to Alex producing the next one.

Hi everyone time has passed like the proverbial flash of lightning! (Wait......!!!)

Thankfully our production quality of books is now of a high standard , and this old book may well have fallen to pieces on most bookshelves.

But....because I keep getting asked about all my old limited edition books (some were 100 to 500 copies per run), I am very soon going to make a pdf pack of all the old books, about 8 in all, plus some extras and offer it at a very low price.
