Welcome to Durango Tai Chi and the Dragon Journal Tai Chi.

The Journal is a discussion about what taiji is, how to do it and why. I hope you find these posts useful for your own practice. I began writing some years ago to contribute as a member of the taiji community, in addition to teaching beginners. Even after 20 years, I am still a beginner in so many ways—still working to grasp the essence of taijiquan through my practice. Each time I stand in Wuji marks a new beginning. Like each dawn starts a new day, or taking the first step of a journey, each practice takes you a little farther down the path—one that never really ends.

As founder and instructor of Durango Tai Chi, I have led practices regularly in Durango, Colorado since 2005. I began a hiatus in autumn 2019 from teaching regular classes in efforts to revitalize my practice and explore new possibilities and potential. I am open to private instruction and will invite a few to practice when circumstances allow.


Please Note: Unfortunately, due to vicious spam attacks on the Durango Tai Chi website, I have discontinued comments and follow links. I have also forwarded my tai chi pages to the Journal pages. Please visit for occasional new posts in the future or to reread past posts. You can sign up to receive email messages with news of new posts, as well. Your continued interest in the Dragon Journal and Durango Tai Chi are greatly valued.
