Tai Chi for Seniors, Health and Self Defense This class is for serious students that want to learn classical Tai Chi and not made-up, new-age dances devised for amusement and profit. On the average it takes 5 or 6 years, to master the classical forms and the underlying theory. However, the theoretical basis is not necessary for students interested only in health; also self-defense need not be practiced, considerably shortening the learning time. The hidden acupoints in each move of the form, which are used to incapacitate an opponent, will be taught. Some basic Chinese medicine is covered in order to understand the real benefits of the form and how each posture affects internal organs and body parts for health, as well as self-defense. Martial push hands consisting of punching, strikes, throws, kicks, etc. is practiced and not the modern, useless pushing forms. Other two person self-defense forms, such as, small and large San Sau, Da Lu, etc. are practiced. Similar forms are practiced using classical Chinese weapons such as: sword, staff; spear.
