The Essence of Kung-fu Taiki-Ken by Kenichi Sawai published in Japan in 1976

The Taikiken pages are dedicated to Master Kenichi Sawai, who expressed his Taiki feelings so well, when he said:

I am proud to be part of a martial-arts tradition as long as that of Ta-ch'eng-ch’üan. (Da cheng quan, Yi quan)

Whenever I think of the past, I see Wang Hsiang-ch'i (Wang Xiangzhai) and hear him saying: 

'No matter if you hear ki explained a thousand time, you will never understand it on the basis of explanations alone. It is something that you must master on your own strength.'
