    Sam Tam is demonstrating the beginning of his taiji form. This is the gold standard for sinking the qi and shifting the weight.

    I posted it on another forum where it was heavily criticized by know-nothings and now it's private. :rolleyes:

    I thought these things were "invisible"?

    I thought we agreed to use "not visible to the untrained eye" in place of "invisible".

    Sam lives in Vancouver and teaches out of his house. Pay him a visit and ask him.

    Even with a trained eye much of what Sam does is a mystery. The video revealed more than he wanted to show but it is his students that would have benefited the most from watching it. Now it is their loss as well.

    So I was hoping to catch a glimpse of any videos on Sam tam, i'm new to finding out about him and so want to absorb as much as i can for future reference if i ever get the chance to meet and learn from him, but anything would be appreciated, though obviously hearing that a private video shows more than what he wanted is enticing I understand why would be wary.

    Sure, maybe, but what he's doing is only external, not internal :rolleyes:

    LOL, It is totally internal, their is a chapter from him in the "warriors of stillness book 2 ". :D

    Nope, nope, clearly not internal only external. It may seem like internal since you're only training external and have no real experience with internal. Very few people actually doing internal. Maybe one day you'll get lucky and find someone who actually trains internal like I have :rolleyes:

    You're actually the first and only person to use those terms in this thread.
    How about stop trolling or add some discussion.

    Sorry but your word counts for nothing since you have yet to give any details of your own training/experience and you are an unknown quantity as far as people here are concerned.
    Nothing you have posted so far gives any
    credibility to your opinion.

    (I'm sure Sam Tam is a very talented guy, but the nature of IMA means it's pretty pointless trying to convince me of his effectiveness with discussion over the internet or by posting videos since as mentioned elsewhere these things need to be felt and experienced in the real world.

    Not trolling, mocking with his own words. There's a distinct difference :evil:

    Ah! So that's how you know if someone is doing internal. Glad we got that sorted out.
