Learn Taiji, Bagua, Xingyi Online -- My Website Turns 3 Years Old Today

On July 4, 2008, I publicly launched my online internal arts school at There were around 100 video lessons relating to Chen tai chi, Hsing-I Chuan and Baguazhang.

Three years later, there are more than 450 video lessons, plus e-books, audios, and other material.

In the past three years, hundreds of members have joined. A few have been with me from the very beginning.

I've changed my views of the school over the past three years. It began after people had sent me emails over the years, asking how they could study these arts when there weren't any teachers in their remote areas. I felt I could give them what they needed.

With my TV news background, the ability to edit videos well and tell a story, I thought I could break down movements and clearly explain them, including an emphasis on the internal body mechanics that make the movements powerful and unique in the martial arts.

Now, every week, I get emails from people telling me that the videos I'm producing are the next best thing to personal instruction, and that's my goal. No one will ever be able to master these arts by studying online. But they can learn techniques, principles, and a lot of mechanics that many internal arts teachers don't know or simply won't teach.

I want people who see my lessons to think, "Oh, so THAT's what this means." I had one kung-fu teacher contact me and tell me he was halfway through one of my video lessons and became angry that his teacher had never taught him this material.

And since I don't have to "dumb down" the material for the mass public who might join a bricks-and-mortar school (I don't have to worry a lot about rent and utilities for my school) I can stay true to the arts and pass along the knowledge I've gained over the years.

This has been a wonderful experience and I plan on continuing until there are over 1,000 video lessons, covering each art and their forms in-depth.

If you haven't tried it out, try it. You get the first two weeks free and you can cancel anytime. It's a 100% honest website.

Here's a sample lesson of an tai chi video lesson from the online school:

Looks like a great site with useful info. I'm adding your site to my favorites and will be checking back often. The world would be a better place if all disputes and wars could be settled through martial arts.
