Dr Lam


Retired doctor

“I am learning tai chi from Master Tang whose moves are really beautiful. You see other people doing tai chi in Victoria Park, or elsewhere, and they are making the moves but can’t fully convey the nuances. It’s very difficult to coordinate the breathing with movement. When you use the sword, you need to have mastered the foundations or you will become breathless. There are people who’ve done it for 15-20 years but still can’t capture the details like Master Tang has. You can’t just watch a video to learn because you won’t see the small, intricate movements. A good master will teach and guide you but even then, you have to learn and really understand it yourself. People say that even if you’ve been learning tai chi for ten years, it may not be enough time to have learned it well enough to show anyone.”
