Tai Chi Push Hands is the bridge between learning the form work of tai chi and developing the sensitivity to work with the 8 energies of tai chi. Through partner exercises, you progressively learn to feel energy in yourself and your partner. This is the bridge to using qi for applications including martial arts, healing and meditation. Push Hands is the accelerator for learning to work with qi in your body.
The 'Best' Way to Learn Tai Chi: The Tai Chi Mastery Program contains over 65 hours of lessons on DVDs and online. Although this will never take the place of a real teacher, I feel this program this will enable these teachings to reach those who do not have the time or money to attend events. It is also important for those who don't have a high-level teacher nearby. This program contains master-level lessons that you can watch over and over for years to come. This is invaluable to anyone who is a committed student of tai chi. Some of my best teachings are included that I have NEVER released publically, material many teachers just don't know. You can watch a master do a form, but very few can pull out all the details that make that form powerful. I will also mention here that we are in the process of scheduling some LIVE Tai Chi Mastery Program member-only events in the future - so stay tuned.
Three Tai Chi and two Qi Gong workouts beautifully filmed on a Hawaiian beach and a Rocky Mountain hilltop. Each workout reduces stress and boosts relaxation with a different set of movement and breathing exercises. The Tai Chi programs are led by David Dorian Ross and CJ McPhee. They include a get-started morning series, a tension-releasing afternoon session and a faster-paced “energy practice.”

The Gentle Tai Chi routine was developed at the St. Luke's Center for Health and Well-Being, St. Luke's Hospital, Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in response to the frustration felt by beginning students who wanted to learn tai chi, but found many of the traditional forms or routines too difficult to master. This routine allows the participant to "feel" the relaxing quality of tai chi without having to concentrate on specific movements.
This is a DVD of Tai Chi applications done in the street and with a reality-based approach. Shihfu Glen Hairston has a no-nonsense feeling toward his art and plenty of experience and training to back it up. But this is more than a DVD of applications. Here is a well produced, modern, edgy piece filmed with graffiti background on a cracked court in the city. But it also has humor. The nice thing about this effort is that, at the center of the music, the jokes, the FX editing is Hairston who impresses us as a serious, honest and sincere practitioner with something to say about his view of the art. Glen doesn't explain every move of his applications but its pretty obvious to those who can see what he's doing. Most of it is straight forward, clever and very workable. His hands are eloquent, trained, fast, accurate. This is at least one take on Tai Chi where the essence of fighting is completely open and honest. Applause for this teacher and his efforts. As the back cover says, "This ain't your grandma's Tai Chi."
