Begginers may practice together with advanced practitioners. They can join any advanced Tai Chi group at any moment. Such traditional system is much better than organizing separate groups for begginers and more advanced practitioners, because those who start should have contact with the best practice standards from their first moments.Begginers from the start come into contact with the right climate and may, naturally through participating in class, absorb the atmosphere and essence of the tai Chi Kung practice. The details of movements and their interpretation they will learn with time.
No need to worry about "failures" at the beginning. It is natural to confuse right hand with left hand on the first practice. It is not a "failure" but natural error that has to occur at the inicjal phase of the excercise.
The essence of the practice lies in observing the movements performed by the person conducting the practice and self correcting. We have to correct our own movements. The constant correcting of our own movements teaches us to be independent both in practice and in life. And the opposite - waiting for someone else to correct us - teaches lack of independence.
With time, just naturally, we learn to see and immitate the movement's subtlety, something that at the beginning seemed to us unattainable and even unimaginable.
At the same time, little by little, we learn the theory, which is not compulsory but helps enormously to understand the essence of the practice.
Most imporant is self awarness during practice and regular practice. Regular attending to classes.
