Cool channel dwai  :)

 

Where or with who did you learn the temple style form ?

 

Enjoyed very much watching you do your stuff!

Sounds like you already know some forms.  For many people will power is strongest in the morning.  I'd recommend don't get dressed until you've done a form or two.   Look through the sources people have mentioned here and particularly google 'tai chi in the park' in your area.

Hi thelerner,

 

I'm dedicating much of my time in findind good sources on tai chi. So much amazing stuff... Anyway as I had to choose I've started learning the 24 yang and the chen 27.

 

Starting the day with pyjamas tai chi seems like a very good idea  :)

 

Not much "tai chi in the park" where I live though (Portugal).

 

What really inspires me is reading about the disciplined daily practices of people in this forum. Feeling really grateful for those.

 

Hope you're having good results with the  wim hof method. Thanks.

I'm currently a student of Master Jose Perez, one of the oldest/earliest students of Master Waysun Liao (he brought temple style to the US and is the Grand Master). I've been with Master Jose for a year and half now. Prior to that I studied for almost 13 years under Master George Bolger who also is a direct student of Master Liao.

Great lineage, lucky you.

 

Which were the 13 forms you were talking about?

Not all are on these videos. Those I presented as an example. I'll post a list shortly :)
