Mr. Zhang, aged 79, used to suffer from right backaches, weakness in back and feet, pain in both neck and shoulders and have a serious humpback. He was introduced by his friends to join our centre to practice Tai Chi to improve his conditions.
When he first came to the centre, he was faltering using a walking cane and had difficulty even in entering the training hall. However, two years later today, his conditions had improved significantly – see pictures and video below.
In the past two years, Mr. Zhang reduced his distressed pains through targeted training methods, including flexible training, strength training, physical training, coordination and relaxation exercises combined with Taijiquan.
In practicing martial arts, on top of having the correct method, the spirit of individual is also very important. Personal qualities like serious attitude, self-confidence and respect are also important. Perseverance will ensure success for the person.
Repeat the simple actions, you are the winner; repeat the action seriously, you will become an expert.
