Taijiquan Foundations, Volumes 4 & 5


Volume 4 will be an introduction to two-person work (push hands) and provide some examples of the relevance of Taiji stick training to two-person work.


Volume 5 will teach, in detail, a short Chen style Taijiquan form, showing how to incorporate in the practice of forms the elements taught in the earlier Volumes of the series.


I don't have a specific time table for completing these additional Volumes.

Taijiquan (Tai Chi) Foundations is a progressive series of instructional videos aimed at explicitly teaching basics or foundations upon which the art of Taijiquan relies for both health and martial effectiveness.


Taijiquan is an “experiential” pursuit: understanding of it comes not from long philosophical discussion, but, rather, from correct practice. Throughout the videos in the series, the focus is on a progression of exercises and explanations - in simple, common language - that lead the viewer towards first-hand experience of the basic principles of the art of Taijiquan. The content and curriculum of the videos is what I wish I had been taught in the way I wish I had been taught.
