What You Learn in Tai Chi Practice

Beginners learn basic practices, plus Wu Jian Quan Style slow form sequence. Grandmaster Wu is the father of Wu Ying Hua, whose husband Ma Yueh Liang was very well-known and admired for his knowledge and skill. I began learning the Wu from his student, Wang Hao Da (as well as Susan A. Matthews), and continued researching on my own after Master Wang passed away in 2002.

More intermediate learners can move to Chen style form, Xin Jia Yi Lu, or Lan Shou Cao Quan form section and Lan Shou Broadsword, or even 10-Animal Xing-Yi Quan basics. I have taught the first part of Yang Ban-Hou form, Cheng Man Ching 37, and several martial qigong sets, including Liu He Ba Fa, Yang, Hun Yuan.

I like this form for beginners because it has a history of being practiced for health and longevity purposes, which is really important for western lifestyles. Master Ma was a hematologist who tested blood samples, so he was in the healthcare field for a very long time. Many high-level masters are also healthcare providers.

What to Wear

Comfortably loose clothing. Shoes not allowed in studio 10, but socks are okay.
