  1. Jason Nordin says

    I have a bit of an issue finding a good exercise application to manage my anxiety, among other things.
    First issue is, I’m not the type who gets a big buzz from physical activity in the first place, so it’s just deliberate torture most of the time.
    Second, It has to have a meditative aspect attached to it to be effective for managing my anxiety. Also because it will keep my attention longer.
    Third, it can’t be exercise for exercise’s sake. I’ve tried that so many times. Thus, martial arts (as opposed to martial ‘sports’ like most Tai Kwon Do) have always drawn my interest.
    And fourth… I’m pretty strapped for cash, to be honest. So that limits my options. And it’s really gotta be in one package; in an ideal world, I’d be taking yoga, tai chi, kung fu, etc. but that’s not really feasible or realistic.

    I think that Tai Chi Chuan might just fit the bill; but it’s like your site and one other that even mention Tai Chi for actual combat, not just for geriatrics. And finding a local class (ideal) for Tai Chi has been a monster in and of itself.
    Any thoughts?
    I’m not just being nitpicky here. I’m finding this is pretty darn crucial to my being able to function.

      We offer a wealth of Tai Chi material in our distance learning program. I recommend looking at our Basic Skills (Level 1) package to start. It is available in DVD format from the Store on this site. It is also on our member site at The member site gives you immediate access to our Level 1 and 2 curriculum and a few other bonus features.
