Learn Tai Chi

Normally, it takes at least three years to learn Tai Chi sequence and to circulate qi (energy) smoothly in coordination with the breathing and postures. You should then learn to transport qi and develop qi balance. Even after you have accomplished this, there is still more to learn Tai Chi before you can be considered a proficient Tai Chi Chuan martial artist. You must learn to strengthen your qi through practice, you must develop a sense of having an enemy in front of you during the sequence, and lastly, you must learn how to train jin (emitting power) during the sequence.
