Taijiquan is much more physically (and mentally) demanding than it looks.

Take it slow - the persistent tortoise beats the hare every time!

And Chen Style can be very physically demanding. So take it easy, listen to your body, and importantly enjoy the journey :)

p.s. My Sifu knows Chen style, he originally taught us Yang and once we learn Tong Long Kung Fu (at least another 5 years, if I'm lucky) he will then consider teaching us Chen.

I make my students do 40 minutes of Qi Gong first, then break for a bathroom because they de-toxify...

then teach one or two postures inwhich they will hold each one for 5 minutes each. hahaha

Β 

After, show application, and have them practice the part of the form they just learned for another 30 minutes before another rest. After that, alignment practice, rooting, and a bit of application before they go home ^_^

HAHAHA

Peace,

Yeah lol, in general our class goes about the same way you describe here. Sometimes a bit more form, sometimes a bit more applications. Not this week though, it was obvious our teacher wanted to make us sweat :)

I didnt mind at all, had tons of energy afterwords :-O Think he wonna make lil CXW's out of us hehe.

It's actually probably very connected. Especially if your standing there. It's a seasoned school. It's kinda like a shock to the physiology. Taichi is full of unconventional movement. Here's to getting rid of the ring rust.
