    Hi everyone,

    My name is Ronald and I've tried to learn from my dad in Tai Chi. Recently started a website (link removed) to talk about my experiences in learning Tai Chi.

    I've practiced on and off, and work has gotten me quite busy most of the time (when I'm not procrastinating, haha).

    Excited to learn and share more about my journey, so a big hello to everyone here.

    Best regards,

    Greetings and welcome to MAP!

    What style of TCC do you practice? And where did your father learn TCC?

    Thanks for the welcome aaradia :)

    I'm practicing the Yang style Taichi, and mostly for health benefits really. My dad learnt it from my granddad, maybe 40 years go I think.

    I'm currently exploring how I can improve on my Tai Chi form, so expect to hear from me around here haha

    My suggestion for improvement is to learn/ delve deeper into the martial applications. My school teaches that, even if one isn't interested in the martial aspect, to fully get the health benefits one needs to understand the martial applications.

    If you understand your targets, for example, you will be properly aligned. Proper alignment helps with the health benefits. And so on.

    Hong Kong, who did your Grandfather learn from?
    Does the lineage possibly go back to Yang Shou Zhong or Tung Ying Chieh.
    My Yang Shifu was a student of Tung Ying Chieh in Hong Kong, but that would be over 50 years ago

    Just a note. This thread got revived recently, but OP hasn't been on Map since December 3rd of last year. I wouldn't expect any responses....

    I practiced mostly Yang and some Chen style. Which Yang forms so you prefer to practise most?
