You do tai chi? I took a class in tai chi. I think it's the yang style. My teacher always stressed that tai chi is a martial art, and he doesn't want us to think that this is "California tai chi." Nor did he like people who turned push hands into a wrestling match.
I quit tai chi, though, because I don't feel like I'm experienced enough to keep it separate from my aikido. When I do feel more confident, though, or when taking tai chi does not mean taking up aikido time, I'll probably get back into it. Perhaps we can talk about the two arts.
