Hello, world, and welcome to Taiji Tips! This website and blog is my online notebook for tai chi chuan. I intend to publish helpful notes and observations about tai chi chuan. I will try to keep my articles general to apply to all styles.
I have been practicing tai chi chuan for more than 15 years. My martial arts experience also includes kung fu (which is also taught in my tai chi class), a minimal amount of xingyiquan and baguazhang (also from the tai chi class), ongoing Brazilian jiujitsu for a year, boxing, and kickboxing sparring. I also ballroom danced competitively in the SoCal collegiate circuit and did West Coast swing dancing for a few years. I still enjoy studying ballroom, Latin dance, West Coast swing, and general dance technique. As a result, perhaps I will also write about other martial and movement arts, especially if I can relate them to tai chi.
