How can I learn Tai Chi without spending a fortune?

I am looking for someone who teaches it, but I would also like to find some good illustrated written materials on the subject. I have a pretty good DVD.
I live near San Antonio, Texas. If anyone who is studying or has learned this martial art can give me some good advice on learning it I would be grateful.
Happy New Year to you as well, my friend. And thanks for the link. I will check it out.


  1. Hi Warren.
    Try this link from the BBC.
    Good Luck mate!
    Oh by the way! Happy New Year!
    Would it be possible to either to give your opinion on either both or one of the questions I asked earlier

  2. Find a not-for-profit organization that teaches Tai Chi for the love of the martial art rather than to make a buck.
    The best place in my area (both depth and variety) is a not-for-profit school that teaches the Chen Pan Ling System.
    This includes Tai Chi Chuan, Bagua, Qigong, Hsing-I, Shaolin and weapons.
    Classes cost $110 for 10 weeks and you can come to class and open practice up to 6 days a week.
    BTW: Tai Chi is not a “quick learn” like the external martial arts. Even if you dedicate the rest of your life to learning Tai Chi, you will still not master/perfect it.
    Another poster suggested taking Tai Chi at the YMCA.
    This will probably be Tai Chi for health/exercise and not the martial art.

  3. There is an instructor in San Antonio by the name of Master Sal Delarosa. He is a 20th Generation direct lineage holder through 19th Generation Grandmaster Chen Zhenglei. Chen Style taijiquan (also spelled tai chi chuan) is the oldest form of Taijiquan in practice in the world today.
    Also if you’re ever in Houston, TX, I would be more than happy to help.

    Good info
    Lots of good videos out there. It is best to go to a class to have an instructor work with you. Tai Chi is very intricate. Not hard to follow but the hands on correction is invaluable.
    Good Luck
