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

The Journal is a discussion about what taiji is, how to do it and why from the perspective of personal philosophy  and practical technique. 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 many ways—still working to grasp the essence of taijiquan through 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 and elsewhere since 2005. I share unique perspectives and practices of tai chi and qigong in accordance with the teachings of Xu Guo Ming (George), Susan A. Matthews and several other masters. I have paused regular classes for the time being as I explore new avenues. If you find a post useful for your own practice, feel free to share your thoughts. Your continued interest is greatly valued.
