It would be wise to remember that when born we crawl, we walk, we learn to run. In other words, practice one movement over and over till you get it right, otherwise Qi is eradic, and can lead to anger issues which shows impatience; this is contrary to the foundation and philosphy of the practice. I say this so you do not get discouraged and stop after accumilating abundent energy.
Great book for beginners who have been practicing Qi Gong. I recomend Beginning "Qi Gong by Stephen Comee"; and "Instant Health: The Shaolin Workout for Longevity by Shifu Yan Lei", before attempting Tai Chi.
Just the essential elements, with clear instructions and easy sketches.
A DVD showing actual "forms" would have been appreciated, even at an extra cost.
The author's efforts inspired me to do a flowchart, which helps greatly.
