In the 12 sessions of basic Tai Chi Chuan Class, we will introduce you to what Tai Chi Chuan really is. We will also give you a better understanding of what you are going to gain from this practice. You will receive most of the basic training in order to complete the first section (or 13 forms) of the 37 Tai Chi forms in this style. These include balance control (walking training), body relaxation (wall training), body coordination (bear movement training), and mind calming (root training and finger lock training). You will also learn the basics of “Tai Chi Fa Jiang” (i.e., how to utilize the power from the ground) and the basics of “push hand practice” (i.e., how to apply Tai Chi). Most of the focus on these sessions will be on learning how to perform the Tai Chi Chuan Form. The primary goal of this stage is to enable you to have a more complete understanding of Tai Chi and to enable you to perform the whole first section (13 forms) by yourself.
