Defense Course

 The following material is organized to teach you self-defense using Tai Chi. Master all the material in one section before moving on to the next. Ask a friend or local coach to help you, or email the organizer for a video chat to get final approval before moving to the next level.

I must emphasize the point that this material is to defend yourself and not to attack others. I encourage everyone interested in the combat side of Tai Chi to adopt the following creed as a guide to your study.

My Purpose

I will train to improve health and well being in all aspects of my life, and encourage others to do the same. Defending the weak where necessary, and promoting understanding and respect at all times wherever I may be.
