Tai Chi is supposed to be like swimming on land. The imaginary water around me should be able to freely pass through me. Air should feel like it can pass through me unblocked. How can this be achieved?
The answer is in the Tai Chi Symbol. Imitate the Yin and Yang Symbol. As you practice the form be smooth, balanced, circular, equally Yin and Yang throughout the form. Be aware of your front, back, sides, top, and bottom. If you move one way move the opposite way at the same time. Fill the spaces all around you.
Try it and you will feel the difference.
I began studying Jiu-Jitsu and then more intently in Aikido, Qigong and Tai Chi Chuan. I realized that the spiritual practice of these arts has really enhanced my life, through martial art training my life was not just good it was better!
I came up with the Life is Better!® Yin and Yang With a Smile design to proudly showcase the positive impact Martial Arts, Meditation and Tai Chi have had on my life.
