Taiji and other Internal Arts

(13 articles online)


Finding Qi in Internal Martial Arts

Internal power manifests when there is a merging of physical mechanics with what we might term physical-energetic poles. In terms of the internal ­martial arts, it is the result of a ­special kind of force brought about by solving the puzzle at the core of the healing and martial arts: how to find the proper relationship be­tween energy and structure.


Enjoying Being Pushed Around

The process of learning to take punches, hits, blows, or pushes is very important to help us deepen our practice and ground us in our taiji. Unfortunately, people believe that taiji is this pretty soft style where everyone floats around and is spaced out; where no real contact or rough stuff goes on in class.


Feather Walking

Tai Chi teaches us how to walk. Every step is slow and exaggerated, so we have a chance to notice and shape every detail of the process. My students and I practice what I call feather walking to prepare us physically and mentally to do the Tai Chi sequence.
