As students of Tai Chi, we recognize the importance of dedication to form. Physical technique and mental focus are fundamental to proper form. The Tai Chi student spends countless hours developing technique and focus in slow motion. The slow motion movement in Tai Chi demands discipline, as faults becomes readily apparent. To achieve proper form, the Tai Chi student is called upon to use the mind and the body in a methodical balanced way beyond where most athletics travel.
