The Tai Chi Mastery Program is the most comprehensive program on tai chi, containing over 50 hours of video on all aspects of taichi: martial, health, healing and meditation. It will contain DVDs, written outlines and online lessons. The Mastery program is for those who want to take their tai chi to the highest levels, learning the internal components that give tai chi its power.
I wanted to quickly let you know that due to many requests we are now offering a lower five payment option for the Tai Chi Mastery Program that you can view by clicking here: Tai Chi Mastery Program
Now, what is mastery?
For some, the idea of mastery is a motivator – something to aim for – while for others, the idea of mastery – especially regarding something like tai chi – is just plainly absurd.
I recently asked on my Facebook page what people thought about Mastery and received over 100 responses. All had something to offer and common themes included being in the flow, effortlessness, practice, the Tao and ease. We also had some more interesting responses like ‘Chuck Norris’ and ‘ Mastery is non-grasshoppery.’
Of course, if anyone is stressing over mastering tai chi or doing it perfectly, they are probably missing the point of tai chi.
That being said, if you look at all those whom we call Masters in any profession, many have followed a similar path. By recognizing this Pattern of Mastery, you can follow the path of least resistance to achieve your own best. Read More

When it comes to exercise and fitness, you have countless choices: weight lifting, running, yoga, Pilates, biking, tennis, golf, cross-fit and other “fad” programs that come and go. With so many choices, it can be difficult to determine what is right for you.
So why learn tai chi and why take the time to really learn it right?
I believe tai chi is the future of fitness and exercise. Tai Chi Chuan translated into the English language literally means “the supreme ultimate.” Tai chi is what I call an Uber-exercise because you can do it for health, healing, martial arts and meditation. Read More
In this first video I talk about how to link the different parts of the body in Tai Chi. The Tai Chi Mastery Program will go into great detail about putting the internal linkages within each tai chi movement, all broken into clear steps so that you can follow the procedure whatever tai chi style you practice.
In this video I talk briefly about the Yang and Wu tai chi styles and how they came from the Chen village. Tai chi was brought out of the Chen village to Beijing where the form was modified and taught to the emperors guards. In tai chi there are large, medium and small frames, which essentially the is size of the movements. There once was a small frame Yang style but this has been mostly lost because the person who held the lineage committed suicide. The Wu style is a smaller frame of tai chi that is great for those seeking more internal work (neigong), meditators, the aging population and anyone with injury.
In the Tai Chi Mastery program I will be constantly making reference to the Yang style because it is the most popular form, and will also be looking at Chen style from time to time. The beauty of tai chi are its many styles and differentiation – and at the same time they all carry a common tai chi root.
I believe that no matter what style you do, one of the five main styles or another kind, that the most important element is to learn the internal energetics that go into tai chi because this is really what gives tai chi its juice. The internal energetics is why you feel wonderful, more energetic and peaceful after doing a tai chi form.
Not all tai chi is equal. Just as there are different models of cars, makes of computers and universities of varying calibers, so too are there different kinds of tai chi. In this post, I focus on what makes tai chi styles unique, from two points of view: what it does for your physical body, ... Read More
I recently did an interview for the Journal of Chinese Martial Arts conducted by Nick Scrima. In the article I share stories about: What it was like to train in Karate in Japan in the 1960′s and in Aikido with founder O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba Why I shifted my training from external martial arts to internal ...
