I returned to Tai Chi class tonight.
At the end of class, the senior student said to me "You did good tonight." I must have gave him a look of uncertainty because he then said "Well...you didn't fall down."
It was a good class. We practiced the Yang long form and the instructor discussed the importance of moving from the hip.
It sounds so simple but I find it difficult to execute.
Some key points from class:
The instructor discussed that if you know your body you will know your opponent.
Relax and punch through your opponent.
The hip is the handle of the whip.
Practice isolating a joint's movement.
So much information.....
