Finding the right Master is very important. Traditionally in China, this is the beginning of the most crucial relationship of your journey to a life of martial art or Kung Fu.
The correct master will help you forge a lifelong relationship with him and Taiji theories. There is an old Chinese saying that says, “Your master is the second father.” The correct master will help you pave your path for your lifelong journey in this quest to understand and master Taiji.
Many fake Tai Chi masters are good with words but lack any understanding of Tai Chi.
They are good at memorizing a form or forms but have no understanding of theories.
They jump around with different masters to “Claim” they trained with famous masters to market themselves or they go around collecting certificates. These kind of FAKE masters are “Trophy Hunter masters.” Avoid the Trophy Hunter master…
Fake Tai Chi masters are good at quoting Tai Chi phrases but lack any understanding of it. In fact, I have personally seen videos where a so called Tai Chi master quoted phrases from one of my websites in a video on TV.
Tai Chi masters can be verified by their lineage.
ALL Respectable Masters will follow certain principles that we call Wu De or Virtues and have their students memorize them!!
