Last Time I Performed Tai Chi Chuan

When life turns another way one must let go of old habits to make room for the new.  I knew I wanted to move west and try new ways of being.  One of the old ways of being that I wanted to let go was my daily habit of performing Tai Chi Chuan, the proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove.  It was too martial for my taste.  Those slow sweeping arms gesture a shove and jab to the solar plexus (left in montage below), a punch and a smash to the anterior nasal spine (Center in montage below), and perhaps a nah-nah-nah gesture (right in montage below).  As a woman this posturing was unrealistic, but I gained confidence and skill through this body movement training.  As a gentle woman, my strategy on all things martial is not to be there when it happens.

Last Time I Performed Tai Chi Chuan was in 1999-montage by Annmarie Throckmorton.
