"As a surfer, soccer player, runner and swimmer, I find Tai Chi is a great complement to those sports. I also did Taekwondo for several years. I've tried several different Tai Chi classes before and they just didn't do it for me. This is not the case here at SF Hunyuan. "Chen-style Hunyuan Tai Chi," the type we practice here, is far more vigorous and practical (and actually forms the basis of fighting and grappling techniques) than the kinds of Tai Chi most people practice. Chen style sometimes moves slow, sometimes fast, and has helped me to create far more body awareness and coordination in my core muscles. I'm beginning to feel muscles and movements in my body which I didn't even know existed or was capable of moving. Plus, I usually leave class feeling very relaxed and invigorated.
