The Tai Chi Exercise System was developed by Master Frantzis to give a student the movement basics that normal tai chi classes and courses often lack. This helps students easily learn and remember the motions of any kind of tai chi form with the least effort and frustration possible by first learning a set of core tai chi exercises.
The physical movements of tai chi must be stable before the powerful internal energetics can be added. This is an issue because for many have trouble just remembering the specific sequence of the movements themselves. This became abundantly clear to Master Frantzis after having taught 10,000 plus tai chi students over the past forty years.
For a tai chi practitioner there are four major coordination aspects that are essentia to learn and do movements of any tai chi form to either a minimum or excellent standard. So what’s needed?
Without having a solid understanding of the physical movements that are within tai chi and without doing them properly the result is having a unstable structure. Even though someone may practice for many hours if they have not developed a solid containter then it is like pouring water into a cup with a hole in the bottom. The profund health benefits of tai chi can’t accumulate to its full potential. The qi or internal energy leaks and/or becomes stuck in the body and does not smoothly circulate.
During this unique tai chi course we will go through the exercises from two perspectives:
You will come away with a set of exercises that you can practice as an introduction to your tai chi form or as an superlative exercise program by itself.
In November 2009 I was lucky to attend The Chi Rev Workout workshop in Basel Switzerland with Bruce. There I learned D&T movement 1, 4 and 5 and began practicing on a regular basis.
Since then - the really great thing is - that I do not suffer from springtime pollen allergies anymore. This is my 3rd year allergy free.
Recently I completed the online D&T course and I am now able to perform the full set of seven movements with ease.
