help in his recovery. Mrs. Kwan also came so that she could
better help her husband. Master Moy advised her to learn tai
chi so that she could keep her good health - without good
health she could not help her husband. At that time she was
already 60 years old.
She came to see Master Moy and practiced tai chi diligently
every day. Master Moy gave her refinements of each move regularly.
He told her to feel the movement and not just do it. Eventually
she was taught how to practice tai chi expressing from the
inside and not just the external form. She was one of the
few who got instruction from Master Moy on the intricacy of
the internal arts of tai chi, lokhupbafa and Xing-I.
Kwan became very good in all the forms that Master Moy taught.
He asked her to teach at workshops of tai chi, lokhupbafa,
and Xing-Yi as well as tai chi sword sets. She has gained
respect from all the students.
