I've been working for over two months on a new website and I plan to launch it this week -- on Independence Day. Through this site, anyone around the world will be able to study the Hsing-I, Tai Chi, and Bagua that I've been teaching for so many years.
The site will contain the equivalent of dozens of DVD-quality videos on it, plus e-books and audio, covering these three internal arts plus more. I've done many video shoots, and the editing and video rendering for the web, not to mention the Photoshop work for the photos, is time-consuming and sometimes tedious. At the same time, it's fun and quite amazing to see the material grow larger and larger. There is still a lot left to shoot and edit, but the site will be launched as it continues to grow.
Yesterday morning I shot over an hour of video covering silk-reeling exercises. I get frustrated watching videos of masters doing these exercises but not explaining or really teaching anything, so on this site, I'll do my best to really explain the principles and concepts to help people practice. On Saturday, I shot video of bagua tea-serving exercises and I'm finishing up those videos today. Video lessons run from 4 minutes to 15 minutes and can be viewed unlimited times by members. There are also supporting written materials and e-books for downloading.
This new website will be a membership site. For a very low monthly fee, members can study on their own or seek certification on any of the three arts. They can also choose to seek rank in the system that I've been teaching for over a decade, and join my students.
Over the years, I've received many emails from people around the world asking how they can study these arts when there are no teachers around. This will be an answer to that question. It's an exciting venture. I'll announce the website address on July 4.
