Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi – Set 2

The second set was originally developed by Master He Wei-Qi in collaboration with Professor Lin Hou-Sheng back in the early 80s and has been promoted to millions throughout Asia. The movements of the second set are slightly more complicated and physically demanding than the first set. It is also not as easy to remember as the first; nonetheless, it is still much simpler than the traditional Tai Chi Chuan.

Master Cheung meet with Master He on 2006 in Shanghai to discuss all the details of the 2nd set and the possibilities of modifying it. The version on this DVD has been slightly modified from the original to make it much easier to remember, and without taking away any benefits. In this DVD, Master Cheung utilized the mirror technique so that he can be seen performing the form from different angles at the same time. The poster is an excellent tool for learning the 2nd set. With the DVD and poster, one should be able to master the 2nd set in about a week.

Since the movements of the 2nd set are more physically demanding than the 1st set, one should perform the 1st set (maybe just two repetitions for each movement), as a warm up, before the 2nd set. This new DVD also includes proper closing techniques to be done after the qigong exercise.

The 1st set is more focused on opening the meridians of the arms. That is why most people are able to feel the qi on their palms after practicing the 1st set. The 2nd set is more focused on opening the meridians of the legs. Not only it is very good for improving ones balancing ability, people practicing this qigong feel differences when they meditate. During meditation, people often feel numbness in their legs when they sit cross legged or in a kneeling position for a long period of time. That is because the qi cannot flow thru freely on their legs. This numbness sensation makes it hard for the practitioners to enter low alpha or theta mind state for deep meditation.  Since the 2nd set is more focused on opening the meridians of the legs, thus enabling practitioners to experience deeper mediation. The 2nd set is also an especially good preparation for those who wish to practice Zhan Zhuang, (standing qigong) which is a very good practice for accumulating qi.
