Tai Chi Chuan is an awesome martial art to watch in action, but difficult to find people that teach and practice it. Have often considered how you might slow down an Aikido technique to resemble a form and train within it as they do in Tai Chi.
This is exactly what I love to do. I have been at it for years - it is an excellent way to self train, and when you go back to the dojo, everything just instantly works. Go on ... test it out for yourself ... you might get hooked
