Tai Cheng Instructional Moves
Hi, my wife and I are just starting Tai Cheng and we are getting confused about which feet should be in front and which in back. The perspective is a little disorienting. Suggestions?

Thank you!

This may not help, because I am often confused as well, but I try to be a mirror of what Dr. Cheng is doing. The moves are done in both directions, so being a mirror of the TV works both sides.

If you are just going through the Master Scroll, that is only shown in 1 direction, and depending on the move, may be more confusing since the application demonstration is not given. I find the application demonstrations very helpful in understanding the moves.

Thanks for that feedback. We're just going to keep plugging away and not worry about being perfect!
Blessings,

That was good advice and just wanted to give it a thumbs up. Mirror the TV. If he has his left foot in front, put your right foot in front. It will get easier. I do Jujitsu and for me, Tai Cheng was too slow in the beginning, but the more I got into it, the more I appreciated what was happening in my body. When I finished it, I had more flexibility, range of motion, balance, etc. and it actually improved my other Martial Arts. I am going to be doing another round after Christmas. Dr. Cheng knows his stuff. Like you said, don't worry about being perfect, but while you are going through the movements, work on being smooth. Our Jujitsu instructor tells us all the time. Don't worry about fast. Work on smooth and slow. Smooth and slow becomes smooth and fast...over time. Think about it this way, if you could do it perfectly, you wouldn't have needed to buy the program, right? LOL!!

Rock on!! You're going to love how you feel!!! Keep asking questions, it's how we all learn.
