Temporary Break

I will be taking a temporary break from my taiji lessons in Singapore as I go to Japan for a year. And now I am faced with a dilemma.

If I don't practise pushing hands for a year, I will definitely drop back to square one after a year of not practising.

If I find a place to practise pushing hands while in Japan, it means learning from a new teacher. If I follow what the new teacher teaches, my current teacher in Singapore may not like it. If I continue to do what my current teacher taught me while under the new teacher, the new teacher may not like it.

It is between a rock and a hard place...

I think it's ok to take a break. The last time I took one, tai ji actually improved in unexpected aspects. I started forgetting to use strength where I use to. I was more relaxed. So a break is not all bad. :)

Hi - Good luck with your search for a suitable place to practice Taiji. Hmmm... sometimes, you are your own teacher... All the best.
