Slow Set  

The first thing I’ll say is that all you wish to know about Tai Ji Quan is in the first part of the form.  Why do I say this?  Because it’s the first section you learn. The one you become acquainted with that you will repeat hundreds if not thousands of times. It becomes your friend by becoming part of you, you can take it anywhere. It can be performed in secret or out loud on a beach or mountain top.  Keep a photographic record and over the years you will have a portfolio of memories.
