How much can I learn in 3 months?

This is a very difficult question and yet it is a realistic question. If you want to commit three months of your life to do something so seriously, you want to know how much you can get in return. Fair enough. Let’s look at it in two different ways:

  1. In the first senario you want something tangible. In this case, you can learn all the Chen Style and Hunyuan forms. If you spend two hours learning each day and four to six hours each day to review and practice you are guaranteed to be able to remember all the forms.
  2. In the second senario you want to get something solid in your ability and lay a solid foundation for future learning and personal practice. In this case you need to learn the basic Yilu routine of the Chen Style Taijiquan Practical Method and the 24-form of the Hunyuan Taiji. Then towards the end of your course, you can pick up as many forms as you are able.

Personally I would suggest the second senario. Three months is a long session for training but in the life of a person and in the life of taiji it is very short. Ability just simply does not settle in that fast. Many of my previous students realize what they have learned only after they finish the course.
