Grounding & Weight Transfer Fundamentals with Ed Matthews

The T’ai Chi classics say that T’ai Chi is rooted in the feet, developed in the legs and directed by the waist, and this will be what Ed Matthews will be working on under the umbrella topic of grounding and weight shifting.  Developing a proficiency in these areas leads to better balance, deeper relaxation, and more effective (and therefore more effortless) use of one’s body.

There is absolutely no prerequisite,  although Ed may reference the first five or six movements of Grandmaster Chen’s form. 

Many people who have invested time in T'ai Chi are aware  of how important  it is to learn the proper use  of legs, and weight shifting for the delivery of  forceful techniques ( often referred to as boxing, but applicable to many types of motion).
