3 Steps to Survive the Tai Chi Zombie Apocalypse.

In case you haven’t noticed, the Tai Chi Zombie Apocalypse is in full swing.

The first outbreaks began well over 40 years ago…

…and now Tai Chi Zombies are everywhere.

There’s the slow walkers:

These are usually the older ones. Lumbering through their Tai Chi set with the stiffness and disfigured posture of a 10 week old living corpse.

…and then there are the fresh ones, whipping through their form in shiny silk.

Pretty to look at but just as dead inside.


1. Stay Alive on the Inside.

Never practice your set for the sake of practicing your set. Always focus on an internal principle or energetic while you do your set. Constantly correct, troubleshoot and make it more and better the entire time.

2. Learn a short set.

Long sets are great but the take time. (You don’t want to be caught in the middle of a 108 move set when They come for you.)

A short set allows you to practice any time you have a couple free minutes, and it allows you to stay laser focused for the entire duration of the set.

3. Train with a partner whenever possible.

First, you’re 9 times more likely to be eaten when you wander off by yourself.

Second, Push Hands and other two person drills give you direct feedback about what you are doing right and wrong.

Use this feedback to improve your formwork and make it that much more alive, internal and correct.


It’s time to end this plague and put some life back into the lumbering corps of Tai Chi Chuan.

With your help we can revive the beast.

No not like that!

There’s no need to strap yourself down, hook up the jumper cables and pray for lighting.

All you have to do is sign up for the Internal Combat Arts course…


…and then train like your life depends on it.

Have a Happy Halloween!
