    on Nov 16, 2010 in Blog
      The Rewards of Patient Perseverance   In today’s world, where everything happens almost instantaneously, it is a wonder that anyone trains in Qigong.   I explain the reward system of Qigong to students as follows:   Picture th...

    on Nov 8, 2010 in Blog

      I was talking to a long time taiji instructor the other weekend and I mentioned that I had made a list of qualities that students should be looking for when searching for a teacher and I had another list of the qualities that teachers might lo...
  • Tai Chi or Taijiquan?
    on Oct 20, 2010 in Blog
      I definitely make a distinction between Tai Chi and Taijiquan and explain it to students by incorporating the definition of Taijiquan which is, Supreme Ultimate Fist. It is the quan in Taijiquan that forms the distinction and must be understoo...
