Last fall, after launching my newest product, The
Chinese Long-Life System, several readers wrote to
ask what I think of tai chi and how the new program
compares to tai chi.
My answer is two or three-fold.
First of all, tai chi is a wonderful form of exercise. It benefits
virtually anyone who can practice it. Some forms are easier to
learn than others, but all are designed to arrive at the destination
of greater health.
In the 1990’s I practiced and played around with several different
styles of tai chi. Chen thunder-style, Yang, Wu, Chang and Chen
(without the thunder).
I enjoyed all of them. Yet, I found Chen Thunder-style to suit me
best. The only drawback to it was the scarcity of teachers in the U.S.
for this particular style.
Second, I like tai chi because the philosophy of daily practice coincides
with my belief about exercise. You can and should do something everyday.
If your upper body is sore, go for a walk. If your legs and upper body are
sore, work on deep breathing exercises – or do the Farmer Burns Stomach
Flattener as taught in Combat Abs – http://www.mattfurey.com/combat_abs.html
Third and most unfortunately, tai chi takes a long time to learn. There are some
styles that are easier to learn than others, but to really experience the treasure-
trove of health benefits, you’ve got to devote a lot of time.
There are many people who have taken up the practice of tai chi at age 40, 50,
60 and so on. And they have benefitted enormously. Yet, they did what so many
people are unwiling to do. They practiced on a regular basis.
On the other hand, being so many people over the age of 40 are incredibly flabby,
inflexible and weak – tai chi is not the right program to begin with. These people are
far better off with walking, deep breathing and the plethora of energy building drills

The Chinese Long-Life System is designed in such a way that the sedentary critter who
has spent a couple decades hibernating on the sofa, can get up and do it and feel the
You don’t need to be flexible. You don’t need to be strong. You don’t even need much
endurance. All you need is the DESIRE to improve yourself just a little bit. Do a minute
of the exercises and you won’t want to stop.
Moreover, those who practice tai chi, chi kung, kung fu or any other martial art – will
love The Chinese Long-Life System because of its ability to rejuvenate and revive your
body/mind after hard training. Not only that, but if you’re a competitive animal, the
exercises are the PERFECT warm-up.
The same goes for those who do Combat Conditioning, lift weights, do tons of cardio, and
so on. You need a boost. And you need to take care of the inside of your body – not just
I don’t care how strong your muscles are or how much endurance they have. If your
internal organs begin to fail, you’re in serious trouble.
This is the reason why The Chinese Long Life System is so incredibly powerful. By working
the pressure points and meridians of the body directly, you increase the flow of qi in the body,
which according to 5000 plus years of recorded Chinese history, increases your health and
helps you live a longer, more fulfilling life.
At any rate, we’ve got another 117 copies of The Chinese Long-Life System available at the
current price. After these are sold the amount will go up considerably. So be sure to get in
while the getting is really, really good. Go to http://www.chineseculturesecrets.com/long_life.html

Kick butt – take names,
P.S. On the following link you’ll find a photo of me training in the system with an 90-year
old lady. These exercises kept her youthful and energetic – and made it easy for me to
teach her Combat Conditioning, which she picked up quickly. Now that’s saying something,
don’t you think. Go to http://www.chineseculturesecrets.com/long_life.html and place your
