Hi moment,

You might check out this thread from a couple years back:

http://www.thedaobums.com/topic/26699-juice-radical-taiji-energetics/

 

He's got a new book, just out, haven't read it all yet, but looks really good:

The Aiki Singularity: Transformative Force

 

And a Facebook Group:

And YouTube vids and a couple on Vimeo as well.

I had huis book Juice, Peng and Surge for Some while, but because of other interests I never got to it.

 

But a few weeks ago I got his video Bare Metal Internals on Vimeo and the accompanying book the Aiki singularity, and in the span of just two short weeks of practicing has Shiko/ Catstepping protocol, coupled with his YouTube video railwork #1, has completely transformed everything about energy work for me, open up feeling in the feet and has been the most intense and consistent workout to start feeling the whole energy body flow he talks about, which I can now take into every other Qigong or Internal art I like, or can do when I wait for the train to arrive ;-)

 

If you want to get started, I would advise the book Aiki singularity, Packing, and then anything that you like or fits your practice style. I'm picking up Tai Chi because of Scott again, because after his drills I feel the energy in the form, and this makes the practice worthwhile.

 

I'm amazed, and grateful that I tried his two short drills for 10-20 minutes a day for a few weeks. My practice will forever be better thanks to that time spend.

I really like his taiji books, and i like his sense of humor. he has some good excercises to fascilitate greater relaxation in the postures. They helped me at least. :)

Everything Scott does is directed at teaching us to feel the energy. So yes, his books and vids are totally in accord.  Energy-Centric Tai Chi... (but once you pick it up, you can use that energy for any practice... or just ... living...)

Your view is from direct experience working with Scott?

I haven't worked with him in person (he's on the left coast), but been following his stuff since 2012, when I first read Juice: Radical Taiji Energetics.... I'm not advanced at all, but have learned and felt SO much. There are a few people here who have worked with him in person. Maybe one of them will jump in..  
 

Check out his group MERGE on Facebook... lots of people sharing their experiences... He's got vids on YouTube and Vimeo too..

ya my home town.  I've worked with his teacher Ben Lo.  and those I've worked with have  pushed with him...

 

As I said he writes well...as far as his clips.   people can make up their own minds.

Hi Cheya,
