I went to China to continue my study of Taiji Quan, 太极拳, and explore. I did learn lots of tai chi, made many friends from all over the globe and learned a little more Mandarin. But as far exploring I just barely scratched the surface. I have a whole new appreciation of Chinese culture especially the language and calligraphy. I have a feeling this experience will influence my art. Studying Tai Chi has improved my life in so many ways. 加油!
