With the past 2-years of relative isolation, I’ve learned to welcome online praise. After struggling alone for a month to produce a video about one of the most confusing but ubiquitous concepts in tai chi, I was not sure how it would be received.
The response has been, thankfully, positive. A recent commenter said, “This video is the most valuable video I have ever seen, literally “the most”.
Whew! Thank you.
This might be the most useful video I’ve ever made for tai chi students. It takes more than 4 decades of confusion about a ubiquitous concept and puts it into focus in the best way yet. I don’t know how well received it will be by other teachers. There are certainly more dimensions to it, and room for debate and discussion. But I think that this put things in terms that students can begin to understand right from the beginning, without needing to spend decades struggling with medieval Chinese beat poetry, and the cryptic cross-dimensional platitudes that have plagued many of us for years.
