MASTERING TAICHI SERIES: Deflect Downward, Parry, Punch - ADVANCED

ABOUT THIS COURSE: Mastering Taichi Through Deflect Downward, Parry, Punch

Master Liao demonstrates in great detail how to practice each single form in Deflect Downward, Parry and Punch, and then shows you how to combine them together for powerful cumulative energy flow. You’ll learn why Punch is not really a punch, but rather a projection and release of gathered energy. You’ll see how Yin and Yang work together as you bring balance and harmony into your correct practice of these key forms.

These videos were originally released on the Chi Flow Series DVD "How to Flow Through Deflect Downward, Parry, and Punch."


Taichi is more than a slow-motion dance or exercise. Taichi masters understand that each form is specifically designed to help you move your energy in specific ways. But to do this, you need to understand the engineering and Chi principles behind each form.

Long-time students know that nobody on earth can go into more interesting, energy-focused detail on how to perfect a Taichi Form than Master Waysun Liao. Just when you think you know a form, Master Liao will blow your mind with amazing possibilities you never considered before, and suddenly a whole new world will open up in practicing a simple posture.

This series is a collection of such classes. The courses in the "Mastering Taichi Series" showcase those lessons where Master Waysun Liao does a deep dive into specific single forms, dissecting and explaining the energy flow, practice variations, meditative focus, and potential power in dynamic detail.

Viewers who are or wish to be Taichi instructors, masters, or practice group leaders will want to devour this series. It will not only put you on the road toward mastering Taichi, it is also rich with tips and lesson ideas you can bring to your own students. What you learn will help you know whether you and your students are doing a form correctly, and how to bring any Taichi form to the next level.
