  • Video footage from 4 different angles
    This innovative course, with video footage from four different angles, was designed to give everyone the opportunity to learn autonomously the 13 Form of Tai Chi Chuan (Yang style). On the web you will find all kind of movies, but how can you learn positions when you don't manage to see their details from every angle? So here's the idea! Take four different shots that give us the chance to view them from every angle (front, left, right, back) in order to properly complete the sequence of the form of the 13 positions.

    Movements, principles and martial applications
    In addition, the course describes in detail, with texts and pictures, every single position, presenting the technical aspects of the movement, the classical principles of Tai Chi (to keep in mind during practice) and the explanation of the origin of each martial position.

    The opinion of the master
    "This course facilitates learning of the 13 Form, a sequence of pleasing positions that include all the classic elements of Tai Chi. The characteristic of the course is to offer a view from many angles of all positions, for each movement there are, in addition to video, even the description of the classical Tai Chi principles and pictures illustrating the original martial significance. There are many ways to learn, many ways to get into deep well-being that this ancient discipline can donate. Let's begin this path walking happily together." Francesco Curci


    Francesco CurciBorn in Milan (Italy) in 1961 Francesco Curci began his psychophysical route at 16 years of age with the practice of zen meditation in addition to the martial arts and a wide variety of holistic experiences.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Will I receive at home a book or DVD? +

    The course is fully digital and immediately after purchase you will receive via email the links to download files that can be used on computers, tablets and smartphones. You'll have at your disposal the course immediately without waiting for any delivery!

    I was just looking for information, why buy a course? +

    All of us have spent many hours searching for information on a theme throughout the internet, ending up with pages written by anonymous people or watching videos that do not tell us what we want to know.

    If you are looking for information here are some benefits that you will find in this course.

    • Professional information
      Here you can find professional information, in a course created by a teacher with experience in his discipline.

    • All information immediately available
      By purchasing the digital course you can download and see immediately all the teaching aids.

    • Where and when you want
      A course at the right time for you! You can immediately download the course packed with information and consult it forever at any moment, whenever and wherever you want.
    Is it possible to learn using a computer, a tablet or a smartphone? +

    To answer this question with certainty we did a test. A group of people, without any prior knowledge of Tai Chi, had been commissioned to study the 13 Form (a sequence of Tai Chi consists of 13 positions) using only the video.

    All people completed the task successfully. In the group there were those who had no sporting experience, those who had and those who already practiced another martial art. There were no substantial differences.

    Some people who have bought our digital courses have sent us some videos in which they practice Tai Chi. Generally the level of movement is quite similar to that of students who practice the first year in the gym with a master.

    If you have the chance, we advise you to follow, in conjunction with this digital course, a course in the gym with a good teacher.


    Is it better to study in the gym or using a digital course? +

    No doubt, it is better to practice in the gym with a master of considerable experience rather than practicing using a digital course, but...

    • sometimes people do not have enough time to go to the gym
    • sometimes people do not find the desired course in their city
    • sometimes people want to save money

    A digital course is already available online, inexpensive and accessible where and when you want.
