    I just went to my first class of Tai Chi....... :eek: ...Sifu Moy opened my eyes to something. I first saw Tai Chi as an art only studied by old hippies with long hair in the park. Well Sifu Moy blew that out of my head. I do understand that the water down versians of Tai Chi are out there. Buthe hasn't watered anything down from what I can tell. He showed me the martial aspect of the Tai Chi Chuan, which I have never seen. I do like the thought of health benefits but that comes secondary to what he is teaching. I now have been looking at vids of Tai Chi online and now I think this is for me. I prefer the redirection of the art to more of a MT or Karate stye. So now I am open to more things. And I can't wait to go to my next class. :D

    I am studying Yang Style Tai Chi. Also he throws in some Bagua and Hsing Yi at latter levels. I am glad that I have found him. Showed me something new, which I am always welcome to.

    Question: Does anyone know of a good Tai Chi place in Las Vegas NV? I might be moving to there in the near future and I want to be able to continue..If I can't there is a place Called Desert Wind Dojo... the focus on Aikido, JJJ, Iaido, and Kendo..... is that dojo....Anyone have anythoughts on I said this is my second choice....hopefully I can find an Internal CMA teacher in Las Vegas...Thank you guys for the help...
