Statement of Gene Burnett
My mission is to practice, teach, and live T'ai-Chi as fully and deeply as possible, without using force.
T'ai-Chi is the Chinese word for the supreme unforced balance that underlies all things.
To me, Practicing T'ai-Chi is to study and release resistance to this underlying unforced balance. Practicing T'ai-Chi is also about developing an unforced relationship with Life.
To me, Teaching T'ai-Chi includes but is not limited to teaching the forms and exercises of T'ai-Chi Ch'uan. It is also encouraging others to develop an unforced relationship with Life.
To me, Living T'ai-Chi is to surrender into this state of unforced balance and relationship with Life.
