Thoughts on the Tai Chi process

09/12/2020

Tai Chi was created from a synthesis of physical martial arts, medical understanding and philosophy. This synthesis is a complex and sophisticated conscious/subconscious process that each of us recreates within ourselves in some way as we practice. Teachers, books and videos can point the way but we must do the rest ourselves.
In this way each Tai Chi practitioner follows the same process as the originator Chen Wangting and all other practitioners since.
I also believe from personal experience that the martial connection is probably not that important if one is not too concerned with developing skill, but for more than a surface understanding it is essential.
