this site aims to provide some fundamental information for tai chi students – however, this should be used together with regular lessons from a tai chi teacher or experienced practitioner.

You do not have to be an expert to benefit from learning tai chi. Even when done poorly, tai chi fosters improved health from within your body. As you progress and are able to pay more attention to physical coordination and the energy mechanics, you will find you gain more and more from your practice.

Initially, the most important thing is to learn the complete tai chi sequence, even if some of the moves are far from perfect. Refining the moves happens over time and you will improve with regular practice.

Tai chi is challenging for everyone to learn, don’t compare your learning speed to others – some will pick it up faster than others. Above all, be patient with yourself and the benefits will come.
