Tai Chi learning 'helps'

 When Tai Chi is performed well, it appears effortless and is beautiful to watch but like most things worth pursuing, it takes time. Curiosity, observation and tenacity served the first outsider to learn Tai Chi well, and they can still help make Tai Chi yours. Bill has found these additional factors true when it comes to teaching and learning Tai Chi:


A sifu, teacher, exhibits humility in their learning and teaching and are minimally responsible for providing a safe environment and accurately and respectfully teaching and coaching students until the student no longer demonstrates they no longer require it.


A student is responsible for showing up with an attitude of taking charge of their learning, genuinely participating in class and departing knowing they will only keep what they regularly practice.


  To help overcome learning curves, Bill has invested his resources developing a Free and truly unique training video demonstrating his approach to teaching Tai Chi.  In it, you will see the unique uniform he created to help overcome a common problem associated with teaching and learning Tai Chi, replicating the movements accurately, please check it out on the resources page and get a sneak preview into Bills' teaching style!  


  Bills' students say he's a patient and caring personality with a passion for teaching Tai Chi. They say his word pictures keep learning light and make the complex less so! For those seeking it, Bill transparently shares events from his life to help those seeking Tai Chi as a healthy way to age.
