Wu Li's Students


Beginners learn basic techniques that, over the years, remain as the foundation of all advanced techniques and forms. The principal focus of Tai Chi training at Wu Li Academy is the development of chi, the internal energy of the body. Thus, new students start learning Chi Kung at the first class.

Beginners are taught basic Chi Kung routines. As students progress, additional techniques are added at a rate comparable to their chi development. Basic pushing hands training and the Tai Chi sword are added when the student reaches each level.

Yang Long Form is introduced early on to familiarize the student with its techniques and applications. Students are encouraged to practice daily — on their own and in groups with either other beginners or advanced students.

Intermediate Students

Intermediate students learn applications of Long Form. More complex Chi Kung techniques are incorporated into the students' training and development.

Advanced Students

Advanced students at Wu Li Academy are trained to use chi and breathe with the form. Weapons and their applications are added to the students' training. Herbal treatments and other healing techniques are also incorporated.
