George Xu Presents
Elementary Exercises for Developing Internal Martial Skill: 14 Essential Everyday Moves (with English Subtitles)
A film by Paul Tim Richard, 48 minutes
We’ve seen many of these single-basic movements before, but Master Xu’s explanation of how to do them is more exact than ever before. In this video (48 min in length), Master Xu leads 14 basic moves and explains in detail how to do the moves in order to make the best of his predator theory and your practice. Filmed during his annual weekend workshop in Durango, Colorado, July 2018.
At the core of his system is the concept of Four Becomes One, using the “center,” or Zhong Ding, as the source of all movement. “Looks simple,” Master Xu says, but “not easy to do.” How do you move like a tiger by using specific muscles in specific ways to achieve clear outcomes? This is what he proposed in the workshop and what he proposes in this video.

The Techy Part
Keep in mind—download speeds depend on your Internet service provider. A 56 mbps download capability can complete the job in about 30 minutes. Anything slower will take proportionately longer. Speedtest.net will check the speed of your connection for free.

Another Resource for Practitioners
Drawn from nearly two decades of learning and teaching the richly rewarding, energetic dynamics of internal martial arts, Practicing Tai Chi offers the beginner and intermediate practitioner useful perspectives on what tai chi is, why do it, how to do it, and ways to integrate it into daily life. Learners who have already begun tai chi and have some knowledge of its basics will get the most out of this book, which is designed to be a companion to your practice.
Concepts and techniques for practicing touch on activities to focus your attention on specific kinds of moves commonly practiced in a well-rounded tai chi practice, such as loosening, stretching, energy cultivation, single basic moves, meditation, and form. Practicing Tai Chi is about how to think about your practice as much as learn a few techniques for doing movements associated with tai chi and qigong.
New practitioners will read insights into aspects of tai chi not usually known by the average tai chi practitioner, even many teachers. It’s available at Amazon as a paperback and a Kindle reader version. I hope it will inspire as well as instruct, and help readers to build greater skill and deeper knowledge of this richly rewarding practice for health and longevity.
