Having trouble remembering last week’s class; did you skip practice?
Sun Moon Foot Tai Chi presents a unique visual perspective that makes practice more productive.

Interacting with a master is a gift to be cherished. Watching demonstrations are instructive but, often biomechanical requirements are difficult to discern. Even in slow motion, it can be challenging to identify key transitions in movement. SMF Tai Chi solves the problem by pinpointing the orientational relationship between key body parts in a format that is easy to follow.

Sun Moon Foot provides both a static and dynamic choreology of Tai Chi to help develop a new pattern for movement that is both agile and robust.

* Each movement is broken-down into sequential segments with the waypoints of stability clearly identified.

* The 3D figures emphasize the anatomical alignment of the skeleton for each waypoint.

* The 2D aerial view highlights the flow of momentum and force from the body's center to the feet.

Stability, power, speed and finesse are attained by controlling the momentum generated by the body's center of gravity as it moves through space. Tai Chi, like many sports, uses the core muscles to power and direct the limbs. SMF Tai Chi's animations illustrate this technique of propulsion by showing how the movement of the hips affect the weighting of the legs and purchase of the feet.
