One of the most common questions we get is:
“I don’t have a training partner, Can I build Internal Power?”
First, there are limitations to how much you can progress without a partner. Part of your regular training routine should be dedicated to finding additional training partners.
However, you should never let an absence of partners stop you from training.
Qigong exercises and forms are the two most common ways to train by yourself.
Unfortunately, far too many people simply perform the movements of their Tai Chi sets or their qigong and that simply isn’t enough.
The key to getting benefit from these types of practices is to know exactly what they are designed for, how they produce the benefits you’re looking for and be able to feel the energy flow or principle you are working on.
So, before you do a Tai Chi set you must first ask yourself which skill you are going to practice while you perform the set.
Is it alignment? Root? Peng? Silk Reeling? Iron Body?
Pick one and focus on just that skill. Make sure you are paying close enough attention that you can find and fix the errors you make during your set.
If you’re practicing Qigong it’s a little different. While the Tai Chi set can be used in many different ways for many different things, A Qigong exercise is usually designed as a very specific tool with a very specific goal.
So with Qigong exercises you must pick and choose which ones will be most beneficial to your goals.
The Qigong exercises in the Internal Iron Body DVD have been carefully selected to compliment each other and maximize your Internal Iron Body and power development.
These are all solo exercises you can train by yourself.
They are taught step by step so you’ll not just learn how to do them, you’ll learn the principles that make them work. So you can apply this understanding to all your Tai Chi.
