    I posted on this before. I still think at one time Tai chi was the best. But it is so hard to find an instructor that knows. With that said, I am now leaning towards BJJ because of what I have learned. What changed my mind is two fold. 1 What I learned about why the Army went to it, and 2 How the Gracies developed what they teach.

    Chi is real, it is electrical based. Its just without proper instruction, you will never learn to us it properly. No, its not throwing fireballs from your hands.

    Yes Osiris, I believe in Chi! I know, how foolish. Well, remember Squall said I am old. What do I know.

    Justme, don't do it. You're better off sticking with Tai Chi! BJJ is just a lot of rolling around on the ground with sweaty men. I'd advise against it. Can't you find any good TC teacher near you?

    Take any and all arts! I did tc for a while years ago and still use their exercises, usually with weights for strength, flexability, and to heal from injuries. And I don't know how well she fights, but my wife's body sure tightens up when she can attend her tc class.

    First of all, the form is not boring. You simply haven't given it a chance. The truth is.... the reason why a lot of people quit TaiChi or say it's boring is because they don't have the patience (or talent) to keep up with the training. Real Tai Chi training can be quite difficult, especially on the thighs, knees, and feet (in the beginning). It takes much more practice than other arts (in my opinion) to become proficient. Besides, if it was so easy, why is that I have over 10 blackbelts in my class (with at least 6 or 7 years of experience in MA) and they have a lot of trouble learning Tai Chi? The answer is this.... Tai Chi is MUCH MORE Challenging to learn and become good at. The blackbelts are so stiff they just don't "get it"!

    Secondly, the sword form (32 steps) is an excellent weapons form and also shows the beauty of this complicated and deep art. Not to mention it teaches many combat applications within the form. Wether it is illegal or not to carry around a sword is irrelevant. I could just as easily use my umbrella to show you the form... Think about it....

    Lastly, even though you don't believe it, TC does train you for the "street" - as long as you learn from the right and competent instructor (meaning: not a hippie love, new-age school). Just recently, someone shoved me (they were just playing around) and as soon as I "touched" them I was able to get them off balance and they fell over. Believe me, it can be used in a fight.
