There is no mystique to Tai Chi Chuan. What is difficult is the perseverance. It took me ten years to discover my chi, but thirty years to learn how to use it. Once you see the benefit, you won’t want to stop.
A famous Wu Style master, Ma Yueh-Liang – (1901-1998) pushing hands with a younger opponent. I think he was in his eighties when this clip was filmed. Also check my previous post and you will see Ma Yueh Liang’s wife, Wu Yinghua demonstrating part of the Wu Style form. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHQv6fLpIoI[/youtube]
A short clip on the late Grand Master Ma Yueh Liang, Wu style Tai Chi. This was filmed when he was 91 years old. He says, “It took me 10 years to discover my chi but 30 years to learn how to use it.” Patience in Tai Chi is certainly a virtue.
