Most of my students discover Genuine Taijiquan for the first time with our classes. Thus luckily they do not have the luggage of modern Tai Chi Dance and get to learn it based on our syllabus.


As most of your students start Genuine Taijiquan the first time with your classes and therefore do not have the luggage of Tai Chi Dance, it is easy for them to think that your rate of teaching is the norm, and that Genuine Taijiquan is common.

Please remember that Shaolin Wahnam students now take only one month to attain what I did in a year, and I was a very good student. It is more than 10 times as fast, which is tremendously a lot. Even if students are 2 times as fast, it is quite remarkable.

Modern Tai Chi dancers perform the Tai Chi form wrongly, as evident in their being weak and sickly, and they suffer from knee injuries. Performing Tai Chi form is all they do with Tai Chi Dance.

Genuine Taijiquan is a wonderful martial art, and we are among the very few who teach it correctly. Being accomplished in the Shaolin Arts, as Genuine Taijiquan developed from Shaolin Kungfu, is actually better than changing stones to gold by touch. At first I thought it was an exaggeration, but later I discovered that it is factually true.


The biggest challenge is that my students are generally very busy in their professional and private lives. Thus many of them find it challenging to practice and repeat what they have learned in class once they go beyond level 2.


A main benefit of our Shaolin Arts is cost-effectiveness. Our students need only half an hour to practice, not learn, their Genuine Taijiquan. If they can't spend half an hour, they spend just 10 minutes, in which case they have to rotate what they have practiced.

They will have wonderful benefits, like being accomplished in the Shaolin Arts said earlier. If our students can't spend the time to practice, they don't deserve to be our students. We then, ask them to leave.

Many people confuse learning and practicing. In learning, practitioners go over new material. In practicing, they go over again and again the material they have learned.

It is in practicing Genuine Taijiquan that students gain their benefits. Our students become more cost-effective not because of learning but because of practicing. I am now about 75, and I haven't been sick since I practice the Shaolin arts seriously, which was more than 50 years ago.
