Context Matters ...
in fact it is everything
For you to be able to actually use Tai Chi Chuan, you will need to understand how we train it, the details and methods that are inherrent in the forms, nei gong and jibengong. This is because Tai Chi relies heavily on 'Body Skill' to be effective. We must use the body in the right way, otherwise, its not Tai Chi Chuan.
As such, you will only be able to access the combative material after 6 months of membership to the Tai Chi Academy. After this time you will be able to open up the 'combative' section of the academy and begin to learn and research the fighting side of this art.
