                                                                              Taijiquan Form Program (TFP) 


For students interested in the Taijiquan Form Program (TFP) via the Distant Learning Program (DLP) you will need to decide which form you want to learn. Each form is divided into three sections. Upon learning a section you will submit a video for review. If needed, I will send you personalized posture correction videos to practice. Upon passing you will be approved to start learning the next section.  


Upon registration, I will send you video lessons for the nominal fee of $5.00 each. There is NO testing fee between sections and NO fee for the personalized posture correction videos. Upon completing the entire form you will submit a final test video at a cost of $29.95. Upon passing you will receive an official school certificate with authentic Chinese stamp and will be listed on the USTCA website. Best of all, I have kept the tuition very low. Please follow the following steps to register for the TFP - DLP.


STEP ONE: Let me know which form you would like to start learning first.


STEP TWO: Pay the $5.00 video lesson fee and receive the lesson link via email within 24 hours. There is NO reoccurring monthly charge, you pay as you go. I will also send you an official school patch with your first lesson free of charge.


STEP THREE: Start studying! I'm always available via email to answer any of your questions.


STEP FOUR: As soon as you are ready for another lesson email me and pay the video lesson fee ($5.00). I will send you the new lesson link via email.

                                                                        Taijiquan Instructor Program (TIP)  


Every student interested in the Taijiquan Instructor Program (TIP) via the Distant Learning Program (DLP) will need to start as a White Sash and work their way up to Black Sash. This will require patience and fortitude. Every student is different so I cannot tell you how long it will take to Black Sash. This I can say, it will be a journey that you will enjoy!


At each sash grade you will be exposed to two forms: one of the three TFP forms and also the Two-Man Fighting Form. Additionally, you will be learning Shaolin and Tai Chi Chin Na (joint-locking techniques) and other self defense techniques.  


Each form (except for the Two-Man Fighting Form) is divided into three sections. Upon learning one section you will submit a video for review. If needed, I will send you personalized posture correction videos to practice. There is NO charge for these videos. In regards to the Two Man-Fighting Form and Chin Na techniques you will also video yourself showing me that you know the defenses/offense moves for that sash grade.  Please note that the Two-Man Fighting Form will require a partner to practice with.


Upon registration, I will send you video lessons for the nominal fee of $5.00 each. You will start of first with videos for the form required for that sash. Upon covering the form you will then receive video lessons on the Shaolin Chin Na and upon completing that you will move onto the Two-Man Fighting Form.


Upon completion of all material for the sash you will submit a final test video at a cost of $29.95. Upon passing you will receive an official school certificate with authentic Chinese stamp and will be listed on the USTCA website. You will then move on to the requirements for the next sash. Best of all, I have kept the tuition very low.
