I understand this one has been out fo print for a while, but if anyone has gone looking, where have people found some of the various secondahnd copies that float around once ina while?

I know amazon will occasionally have a copy or too, but that's about the only place I've found it at so far.

Does anyone else know any other good places?

Thanks in advance.

I believe it is a Japanese version of Yi Quan, not Taiji.
