Tai Chi DVD
Summary: Learn Tai Chi yourself with an instructional Tai Chi DVD.
I often wondered about the consternation the Tai Chi masters must have felt. Thinking how they have patiently studied the Tai Chi over the years, growing old and senile, and tough as an old goat, only to see the decline of the beloved art and from it rose a new generation of Tai Chi radicals doing it for health and fitness and aesthetics. But what surely did break these pathetic old chaps? Instructional Tai Chi videos and Tai Chi DVDs.
Originally, Tai Chi was taught only to a selected few. It was never taught outside monasteries. But when a Tai Chi master Chen Chang Hsing broke tradition and taught it to a talented student, Tai Chi was released to the common people.
A typical Tai Chi master commits his life to the Tai Chi philosophy in a very early age. Usually he becomes an adept to the art in his teens. But usually not only until he reaches his prime does he attain the rank of a master. Mastering the Tai Chi philosophy takes very much a lifetime to achieve, and traditional masters have done such.
Now, with the advancement of the internet and media, education and learning has now got so many options that the only problem would now be choosing which learning media is the most prospective. You can study tutorial text, watch Tai Chi instructional videos, or enroll in a class.
Most enthusiasts opted to buy Tai Chi DVD. The reason? Tai Chi DVDs are lessons that can be postponed or resumed anytime.
