This week, I wanted to share information about sources of information related to tai chi and qigong that are available on the internet. This is not intended to be a comprehensive ranking or listing. It only reflects my opinion and experience about learning some aspects of tai chi from internet sources.
Here are some of the web sites that I have found useful. I recommend them to other people.
Here are the blogs I regularly read, a brief description, and what I get from it.
Huan's Tai Chi and Beyond, by Huan Zhangn this blog, you can read about basic tai chi principles, like standing in wu ji, relaxation, and slow movement. Huan Zhang writes clearly and covers each topic in depth. I only wish he would write more. He averages about 1 new article a month.
Internal Gong Fu, by Mike BuhrIn this blog, you can read about Mike's journey as he learns about the whole-body techniques of wujifa. He is very open about his successes and failures in applying the techniques he is learning. He writes a lot, typically about 5 or 6 new articles each month.
The Bean Curd Boxer, by Paul ReadIn this blog, you can read about Paul Read's thoughts on tai chi. He also publishes a weekly podcast that is fun to listen to.
SpiralWise, by Dr. Howard TrippIn the words of the author, "Turning Internal Arts Hippie Babble into Scientific Enlightenment". I don't agree with everything he writes, but it is usually pretty useful.
