Recently, it was told to me by someone close to me that her friend wanted to master Tai Chi. Its been a few weeks since I heard this and it still doesn’t sit right with me. I began to ask her why her friend felt he could master Tai Chi, but I hesitated as I knew she was not well versed on the subject.
The first thing I felt about the person was that maybe they were not really studying the fullness of Tai Chi, simply the name Tai Chi suggests that it may be an impossible task to master Tai Chi, but how do I know. Then, I began to think maybe the person is primarily interested in the physical movements of forms and that by perfecting the form he will have mastered Tai Chi. Humm, this still doesn’t set well with me.
So, let me ask you. Can one master Tai Chi? Is it possible to perfect the forms in Tai Chi? What is Tai Chi and What is Tai Chi to you? This seems to be the same battle I’ve read on Yoga blogs.
Wu Chi is a concept denoting the primordial state of the universe which gives birth to Tai Chi, the polarity Yin and Yang.
