No shortcuts to practice

No shortcuts to practice

There are no shortcuts in the learning process. A very weird belief has spread in the west, probably sprouting form some old chinese legend or story: the belief that once one unlocks the “secret” to the energy circulation, his body will be magically transformed and he will have mastered the art of Taijiquan (tai chi chuan). There’s no such thing.
The only real way is to practice daily, and a lot – so much that the body is changed by the practice – only then the body will offer the conditions required for the qi to circulate naturally.
