Self defence the Tai Chi Way. The original Tai Chi form was based on fighting techniques and while we don’t encourage people to go round picking fights, we do find it amazingly useful to understand the origins of the movements of the form, bringing to life what we practise.
The form itself is well described in Grandmaster Mantak Chia’s book Tai Chi Chi Kung, or the Inner Structure of Tai Chi. The teaching emphasis in this video is about the martial applications. The spiritual, health, energy and healing benefits come from s minutes daily practice of the form which you can find in the Steel Body Tai Chi video.
