Hi Folks, For a limited time we have opened the Tai Chi Mastery Program.

You can watch the video above to learn more about Why I created the program, how I used tai chi to heal and about my teachers.

Tai Chi Mastery Program

Thanks, Bruce

P.S. This is the most comprehensive Tai Chi Program ever created and we will likely fill up our membership within the next 10 days. It covers Tai Chi Push Hands, Neigong, a Short Form, the Tai Chi Classics, Martial Arts and Meditation

The following video is an overview of some of the basic principles of Tai Chi Push Hands or Tai Chi Tui Shou.

In the Fall we are going to be releasing a Tai Chi Mastery Program, which will include a video program on tai chi push hands or tai chi tui shou that is relevant to all tai chi styles including the Yang, Wu and Chen Styles of tai chi.

The push hands videos will be a complete program in itself showing beginning to advanced methods. This will be a comprehensive system that can integrate into any tai chi training or ciriculum. Currently we have about 30 hours of footage but this is only about half of the program – we have not yet filmed the advanced segments. I feel push hands is one of the most important practices you can do if you are learning a tai chi form or immediately after you learn a form. It is also fun to practice.

For those who may not know about push hands, you work with a partner in a series of exercises. It enables you to learn and feel the 8 core energies of tai chi integrating them into you body. Although most view push hands as a martial art practice, in reality it rapidly increases your energetic sensitivity and is thus useful for health, healing and martial arts. It is also an extremely effective at increasing sensitivity for the bedroom arts, something I have dedicated an entire chapter on in an upcoming book.

We will be releasing more videos on push hands in the coming months. Please watch, share and comment – this helps spread the knowledge.

This is a great video clip. In my book The Power of Internal Martial Arts and Chi on page 242 I tell the story about when I first meet my main teacher and Taoist Master Liu Hung Chieh:

“On one of my first days with Liu, he asked about my martial arts background. Liu said that I looked big and strong, which I was, being over 200 pounds. As a small test, he got up and put his hand in the Bagua Single Palm Change posture and asked me to move it. I could not. I couldn’t even move one of his fingers. This man never weighed more than 110 pounds and I could not move his finger with my entire bulk despite all the skill and power I had developed over twenty years of training. Like Wang Shu Jin, Liu said that having chi was more important than having size, youth or strength.”

Liu taught me his system for bagua which I have just released with the Bagua Mastery Program.
