Learning Essence Tai Chi Has Been Transforming

April 2009 

Our experience of learning Master Owen's Essence Tai Chi has been transforming. First, the Tai Chi is as effective as the much longer forms that many learn. For us, these longer forms are not practical to perform each day. With Essence Tai Chi, we have completed the form - as much as we have learned, each day. This is the most important point. Since we have completed the teaching, performing Essence Tai Chi is immediately affirming beyond the required 4 minute interval. Thus, the effect of the form developed by Master Owen is equal to the longer form yet fits into a work week of 9-10 hour days. 

Although my husband had not, I had learned Tai Chi before and also Soaring Crane Chi Gong. Unfortunately, I could not assimilate these forms into my daily routine due to the length. 

While I was learning Essence Tai Chi, I discussed it with my friend several times. My friend had learned the Yang Tai Chi long form and was somewhat dismissive about Essence Tai Chi. However, when I asked him when he last performed the long form --it was over 4 years. From my perspective, Tai Chi must be practiced daily for benefit so I will stay with Essence Tai Chi. 

Before I learned the value of Essence Tai Chi, I decided to trust Master Owen with the time of my husband and I to take the lessons. I knew already that the weekend class approach would result in a poor understanding of the form. Also, my husband and I have very different learning styles. I prefer to learn slowly and surely so that I do not mislearn while my husband learns more quickly. Due to my preference, our lessons lasted 12 weeks. Both of us learned the form and the most pleasant classes were filled with insight and humor.
