    I am considering a return to Xingyiquan. I stopped because, to be honest, there was no one to train with in my area and there were no teachers that were all that much better than me, also my Arthritis was an issue as well.

    I have had a long on again off again addiction type of relationship with Xingyiquan, even use to travel 4 hours, once a month to train with a good teacher. He however had the audacity to move 15 hours away...the things some teacher will do to get away form me :)

    Since I was training on my own, even tried to get a "Free" training group together. Had lots of interest, which ended in lots of excuses, with one person, the oldest (71 years old) showing up to give it a try. He liked it, but, as he said, at 70, he was not ready to get into something like this.

    I recently found a person who is suppose to be an exemplary Xingyiquan teacher and he is about 2.5 hours away. I knew of his existence when I was traveling to my other shifu, but I could not locate him.

    Had not done any Xingyiquan in about 6 months, but last week, after I finished teaching and everyone had gone home, I did Wuxingquan and I have to say it felt really really good

    Still talking to the wife about it, she is not quite on board yet, but she has me teaching Taijiquan in her office and when I retire, in about 8 or 9 years, wants me to teach more. I also want to teach Xingyiquan...can't help it... I'm addicted.

    Nothing written in stone yet, but I am seriously thinking about it.
