As a student of Tai Chi for over 34 years, I have had the privilege of working with many teachers, yet I have taken classes at Empire Tai Chi with Gene Nelson longer than anywhere else. The teaching is both rigorous, in the sense of exacting, and also connected to the deeper principles of movement and flow that is essential to all Tai Chi. The practice of Tai Chi can be both precise and meditatively relaxing and rarely have I found both aspects of Tai Chi combined so thoroughly in a single teaching approach
