16. Wu Chi and How to help students actually feel the energy within the first several weeks of study. Our students are usually able to feel the electrical energy within the first 2-3 classes. This is critical to getting the famous Tai Chi results for arthritis as seen in studies.

17. Tai Chi body frame training - Large, medium and small frame. This includes being able to perform the entire Tai Chi set in a very limited space of several feet as well as being able to utilize the great deal of space that is most commonly seen being utilized by Tai Chi practitioners.

18. 4 ounces moves 1,000 pounds principles and concepts applied

19. How to perform the Tai Chi moves in a weight bearing manner in order to get the bone density results as seen in studies performed at Emory University.

20. How to utilize and practice Tai Chi in a manner that will rehabilitate injuries and physical conditions such as back problems. This is person and injury specific and is not just practicing the form moves the same way that everyone else in class does.

Real Tai Chi for rehabilitation purposes is specific to the individual and any real Tai Chi instructor knows how to teach it this way. It also includes how to intelligently modify Tai Chi moves so that a person who is elderly or disabled can still get the full benefits of practice. This includes such things as being able to perform the Tai Chi while sitting down.

21. Various and different ways to practice the Tai Chi moves in order to work with different personalities and mental states to develop different attributes and abilities including the ability to become more grounded and mentally focused and to how to mentally relax and get rid of body tensions including headaches depending on what is needed.

Part of this refers to the idea that everyone should not be doing the same thing the same way. From a medical standpoint Tai Chi is very individualized. So, if the teacher claims they only practice or/and teach Tai Chi for health then they should be quite knowledgeable in this area and if they are not then not only do they not know the self defense aspects of Tai Chi but they don't understand much about the health aspect of practicing Tai Chi either and you would do better to keep searching. If you can not find someone in your local community who really knows and teaches Tai Chi then please contact us and we will do our best to help you.
