Tai Chi Mastery Program Components
The material in the program will help you build an INCREDIBLE tai chi practice that will benefit you over the course of your LIFE.
Core Tai Chi Alignments
To enable for tai chi to do what it can do, you need to have all your energy channels open and at the least not block the flow with bad alignments. Often many people either collapse or over-extend their body in different postures. We show you have to smoothly transfer from posture to posture and which alignments are essential for you to create a great tai chi practice.
Tai Chi Energetics (Neigong):
Neigong is what gives tai chi it effectiveness and power. There are sixteen essential neigong components you need to know. In this program we cover many of them and look at how to integrate these components into your form.
Tai Chi Circularity
All of tai chi is based on circles. In the program, we discuss the three primary circles that are present in all tai chi. By understanding the three tai chi cirlces you will be able to see how they are integrated into each tai ch move. It makes learning and teaching tai chi easier.
Breathing in Tai Chi
There are many ways to integrate different breathing in tai chi. We will do an overview on how to integrate Taoist breathing techniques into your tai chi.
Tai Chi Postures
Holding static postures in tai chi is a way to train your body to be stronger and open up energy channels. Classically, to get really good at tai chi you were trained to stand in postures for extended periods of time. In some of the advanced clips we will look at several tai chi holding postures. This knowledge can be applied to any form or style.
The Eight Energies of Tai Chi
We will look primarily at the first four energies of tai chi and how each of these energies are used in the form, as well as how each of the energies have direct martial applications.
Tai Chi Push Hands
Push hands is the method whereby you learn to directly work with the eight energies of tai chi with a partner. As a bonus, included is a comprehensive push hands program that teaches you partner exercises up to double push hands. Practicing push hands is the bridge and the key to learning the how to use the energies of tai chi in martial fighting applications.
