Training with Sifu Hairston
What Makes Tai Chi Work

by Glenn Hairston
Duration: 14 minutes

Tai Chi is a martial art that is often referred to as a soft style. As a fighting style, this means that Tai Chi avoids using resistance and muscular strength when defending oneself from an aggressor. In "Training with Sifu Hairston: What Makes Tai Chi Work" Glenn demonstrates how Tai Chi is a system of physics which uses the body as a system of pulley's and levers, negating the use of muscular strength for self defense.
