    so your learning the entire form in 48 hours? Well im not a kung fu expert but doesnt take a large portion of time to learn a technique and use it properly?

    Learning a form dosen't necessarily mean learning how to use it. It might just mean memorizing the kata and doing it passably.

    The sad thing is, if you learn tai chi in 48 hours or 48 years, your total ability to fight will be then same in 99% of cases, as will your health benafits.

    While I agree that most schools dont teach the fighting aspects, the health benefits will be pretty good over time... so they cannot be lumped with fighting ability...

    I think more people get a benafit from walking up the stairs to there class than they do in the class.

    This is going to annoy some people that take this **** way to seriously, but I will go on. There is a dance class with 13 year old girls doing moves much more sophisticated then Chen Style, so as far as learingin the exterior movements, they could do it in a few classes, no problem. I was at Chen style class for a short time, and the instructor admitted that ballet and jazz dancers picked the routine up quick, I mean quick. Now, i'll bet that half the people that do martial arts, (only half, myself included) might find this all very challenging, but for someone talented at movement, it might be a breeze. But you would have the scary chi power.....
