TELL US ABOUT YOUR INTEREST IN TAI CHI:
I have studied Tai Chi Chuan and Aikido off and on for 40 years.
Since December of 2012, I have been a member of The TC Society.
Then began an intensive year long, daily study of the Yang Long Form with Shifus TC Hou, Brian Weaver, and Paul Terry.
I was the last student to join the group led by our Grand Master TC Hou prior to his passing in 2013.
Being the first student since that time to learn all three sets, I have had the honor of substitute teaching when our regular teachers have other commitments.
My interests in Tai Chi involve the generation of Chi, the use of Gigong exercises, the correct performance of The Form, martial arts applications, and allowing Tai Chi to become a part of my everyday movement.
I continue to study Tai Chi Chuan with my TC Society teachers, and Bagua with independent teachers.
May we meet and share the joys and benefits of this age old art.
