Tai Chi Tuesday: Don't Go It Alone

There are plenty of DVDs and television shows, YouTube programs and books to help you start your path on Tai Chi.

But don't stop there. And don't go it alone.

You aren't the only person looking to improve health and flexibility using this martial art, so don't do it by yourself. And you aren't the only person at your current skill level, either, so don't worry about how you compare to others.

Find a shifu you trust. Find a supportive class. Find people who share your curiosity, your passion, your interest. If the first class you choose or the first shifu you meet isn't quite the fit you sought, keep looking (and keep practicing as you search).

Once you find that right fit, let these companions spur you on, engage you, challenge you. Guide each other. Chances are, you'll find a friend, and that's always a good thing.
