Why Enter Tai Chi
Many of you may know us from our popular YouTube Channel Enter Tai Chi. When I started that YouTube channel I really didn’t have any direction. I just knew that I wanted to share what my Sifu taught me over the years. I have been blessed to be able to train with a Sifu at the caliber of Sifu Phu Ngo.
At first I tried all types of things I created a private social network. That didn’t workout well because the company I used went out of business and ultimately the scripting was to buggy. Between having my own martial arts school and being a full time online marketer I kept enter tai chi as a pet project of mine.
Friends of mine saw what we created and they really wanted us to keep filming, so I recorded about 50 more times. I wasn’t prepared for the outpouring of people wanting more from us.
Well my friends the time is here. I have my marketing team working on Enter Shaolin with the goal of bringing you the best supplemental training on the internet.
To those of you who have been commenting and giving us thumbs up on youtube I apologize for not engaging with you guys and gals more. To be 100% honest I didn’t realize just how much was actually going on our youtube channel.
We only put up 50 videos in 4 years. Fast forward to now, for the past month we have been uploading more videos to our enter tai chi channel. At the time of this blog post we are in the process of putting together our evergreen membership site. Meaning that we will be adding on – going training videos to this membership site, that’s not all. We are also planning to do live monthly webinars as well as hold actual seminars for our members.
I am not naive enough to believe that you can learn kung fu just by joining an online site. Certainly nothing replaces face to face training. However, we decided to teach our brand of kung fu ( The Ngo – Dac – Na System ) because nobody else online or offline is focusing on energy the way that we do.
Sifu Phu teaches Jujitsu guys, mma guys, karate guys, Boxers, Wrestlers etc… All of them agree that what he teaches them enhances their respective skills.
Back to my Enter Tai Chi Story
Originally, the idea was that we would turn Enter Tai Chi into something. Though after thinking about it for a few years, what we do is heavily rooted in Shaolin. This is why we decided to create Enter Shaolin because it fits inline with what we do.
Personally for me, Tai Chi was the key that unlocked my martial art skill. In my early years I studied Karate even after several years of training in Kung Fu I was still having problems dealing with my own force.
It wasn’t until I started doing Qigong and my Tai Chi form did I start feeling Chi. Constantly practicing my Taichi enabled me to connect with the rest of my body in a way that I was not able to do in prior years.
I would have to say my skill level jumped up 80% just by including Tai chi into my regular practice. I think one of the reasons why Tai Chi gets a bad reputation among some martial art circles is because in order to truly be good at Tai chi it takes many many years of practice. Because when I first started I was very interested in learning how to fight Tai chi didn’t really appeal to me.
After about 6 years of training in Wing Chun and Chi’na I felt something was lacking in my skill. I couldn’t put my finger on it. Sifu suggested that I should start doing Taichi. He was right, Taichi made all the difference, it improved my stand up game as well as my ground game. Because it helped me read energy better and it helped me to learn pressure control.
It was Taichi that ultimately made me realize that style is meaningless….
…So I created EnterTaiChi out of respect for the art because it helped me so much.
