Taijiquan and Daoism: From Religion to Martial Art and Martial Art to Religion

By Douglas Wile, Ph.D.




Taijiquan and Daoism: From Religion to Martial Art and Martial Art to Religion

This study explores the ways in which the construction and deconstruction of a martial arts–Daoism connection has figured in political ideology, national identity, and commercial interest during the past 400 years of Chinese history. The text focuses on the taijiquan as an important site of constructing “Chinese-ness.”
