They're long for a reason. :)
They're meant to be long to work on your focus. Tai Chi is a form of moving meditation.

I'd suggest taking the time to learn it properly instead of a quick-fix kind of thing. :)

I'd suggest Qi Gong! I practiced this a bit a while ago, though I was never really that into it.

That's why I suggest -

I don't know hardly anything about this stuff though, just a quick internet search, & my little experience with Qi Gong - it doesn't take that long to learn the movements! Less intense place to start I guess is what I'm tryin'a say! =]
Absolute looney tune.

That's a pretty good link. :)

All martial arts are great for learning focus and extending focus.
They're not just methods of self defense... they're method for self discipline, and that's really the key if you wish to get more out of a martial art than just learning to protect yourself.

All arts, when practiced properly and correctly will train you spiritually, this is the lesson that that took me a good 6 - 8 years of Aikido to learn. lol
I'm a slow learner. :D

The form of a T'ai Chi style will take you on a very specific internal journey. It has the added purpose of attuning your energy pathways. When one practices them, it is best done is a meditative state. If you achieve such a deep level of meditation that will be good whether you are in that state for only 1 of the moves or every move. (Of course, every move is the moist ideal.) Once you can harmonise your mental state with your physical (body) state, the 2 states become 1 and the meditation is smooth and easy. Once you can do that then 200 moves passes in no time at all or can appear to last for a thousand years. Just take it 1 move at a time. :)

For a while now I've been wanting to properly learn Tai Chi, but have found no schools, except one that teaches 'Tai Chi Chuan'. Can you tell me what the main differences are, and if you think they'd teach the 'slow' style? When I was young I took various forms of martial arts, but now I'm old, have a bad knee, and want to learn something that won't hurt me.

Thanks. I guess I'm going to have to go to the studio and actually see what they do there, and even if they want to allow me in the class.

Tai Chi is just like a lazy way of saying T'ai Chi Ch'uan. A good class should accomodate anyone and teach you slowly and gently. THe fast stuff is for the more advanced student. It is taught slowly at the beginning so as to allow the student to learn how to achieve physical balance of posture and precision of movement. (and for the more advanced to refine such things in themselves.)
You can contact the T'ai Chi Union of Great Britain for your nearest class but they are specific in mainly 1 style. Seahorsearts are a Lee Style organisation. There are quite a few styles around.

I walked in and saw one instructor teaching two women. It was what I have seen before, nothing fast or violent. Then I talked shortly to the student in charge (it was a saturday), and he told me what the style is and the instructor's line of descent in the style (The pictures of the cifus were on the wall, from the cifus in China all the way to the instructor) and told me that classes are individual- one on one, not group classes. The studio was modest and people were wearing their own clothes- no uniforms to buy, no commercialization such as that which is seen in your usual karate studios- just one on one lessons. I will see the instructor tomorrow, sign up for the class and find out what the schedule is and how I can work it in.
