Tai Chi for Self Defense

Many people ask about how tai chi may be applied for self defense purposes.  For this reason I feel, as a new learner it’s important to see each new posture we learn demonstrated in 2 ways; once for proper form, the other is to learn the martial application of the posture.

This video is one I found that I feel is a nice little “introduction” to the question of how to use tai chi for self defense.  In the first 1.5 minutes you see sparing (set to lively music) using moves practiced in martial arts and Tai Chi.  With the second part of the video we are shown the previous postures now slowly broken down with their martial application.
