The orientation of the class are on the first and second classes. The basic concepts of what is Tai Ji Quan ("q" pronounced "ch"), "Flow," "Soft," and "Centering," thus making possible each movement a whole body movement will be discussed during this period. A guided experience of these concepts will be performed by the instructor thus establishing a basic "warm-up" evolving into the more specific forms of the Tai ji quan series.
Currently the only form of Tai Chi being offered is the Short Form (24) Yang Style. Beginning Fall Quarter 2002, their will be an intermediate section added, which will possibly include the Long form (108) and Push-Hands technqiues.
