Historically, internal martial artists have held back the “good stuff” in their teaching, and kept it secret until a student had proven both proficient and loyal, a process that could take quite a while. I’ve been exposed to things at Michael’s school that I am absolutely certain (with another Sifu) were only for the “behind the door” student, and revealed only after a formal kowtow ceremony and money changing hands. Michael has no secrets, he willingly shares all his (considerable) knowledge with his students; all you have to do is show up and apply yourself.
When you are taught by Sifu Micheal Paler, you will be astounded by the changes in your life. No matter what your goals are — health, self-defense, spirituality, general exercise, or just because you feel like trying something new — you are going to end up becoming healthier, happier, and with a sense of personal power you never thought possible. Speaking from my own years of experience, I cannot praise this extraordinary man enough. The teachings he passes down from the 6 generations of Masters before him are amazing.
The Tai Chi Online classes with Michael Paler are awesome! It truly is like being in class with him in person. I never quite seem to get to class as many times as I want. Now I can cue them up when ever and where ever I am. Thank you, thank you for putting together such a priceless program. My quality of life just went up a notch or two!
I began Tai Chi Classes to gain a better understanding of the application and martial principals of Tai Chi. Sifu Michael Paler has a deep understanding, not a shallow knowledge, but rich and thorough. Before practicing with Michael, and I thought I had a pretty good grasp of what Tai Chi was…I was humbly wrong. I can say I am completely and utterly vested in Michael’s teaching.He has created a sanctuary which is worth every penny and then some. Thank you, Sifu Michael Paler.
In over a decade of martial and longevity arts practice, I have trained with many, many teachers, and never one more knowledgeable, graceful, or of a more genuine lineage than Master Michael Paler. He is very patient and gentle, allowing for an efficient transfer of knowledge to his students. Michael has done an incredible job of creating a safe space that is welcoming to all levels of experience, regardless of whether one’s primary ambition is martial prowess or health and longevity.
Excellent resource. Expert guidance in a format that I can repeat, repeat, repeat. Every viewing affords deeper observation and inner experience. The practice tool I’ve been yearning for.
Excellent teacher. Skilled, knowledgeable, dedicated. A great way to learn Tai Chi.
