The second set of tai chi, qigong and shibashi was originally developed by Master He Wei-Qi in collaboration with Professor Lin Hou-Sheng back in the early 80s and has been promoted to millions throughout Asia. The movements of the second set are slightly more complicated and physically demanding than the first set. It is also not as easy to remember as the first; nonetheless, it is still much simpler than the traditional Tai Chi Chuan.
Some benefits of the 2nd Set:
- All the benefits of the 1st set, plus …
- Opens up the meridians of the legs
- Improves ones balancing ability
- Improves Zhan Zhuang (standing qigong) experience
- Achieves deeper meditation when sitting cross-legged or kneed
- Better body coordination
- More endurance
Since the movements of the 2nd set are more physically demanding than the 1st set, you could perform the 1st set, as a warm-up, before the 2nd set. This new video also includes proper closing techniques to be done after the qigong exercise.
