I would like to ask some questions about Tai Chi, but I don't want all the mystical mumbo-jumbo answers. I don't understand all the wierd terms for certain things, it looks to me as something to hide behind. Just straight, simple talk please. And please at no point answer - "You just feel it", or anything like that. It doesn't answer anything. 1 - How can you tell if someone is internally connected? If it is internal, how can you see it? How can you teach someone to control their internal organs? 2 - How can you tell by watching someone do a form if they are any good? When there isn't much moving about, and the moves are in slow motion, I find it difficult to see any skill in this. What is the skill? 3 - Why is everything slow in forms? Surely you should speed up at some point? 4 - Why is pushing hands so important? I've been watching some videos lately, and not one seems to show any realistic element.
