Weight training was important throughout high school, as part of the sports I played and as a way to stay fit. I stumbled on a bodybuilder who used `chi strength to lift heavier weights. Off to the bookstore I went, hard-pressed to explain what I was looking for because I wasn't sure. But to my surprise, the lady seemed to know right away and pointed me to a book:
Some call it `laws of attraction, purpose or fate; I prefer `synchronicity (rf. Carl Jung). This book had nothing to do with weight training, but I was so intrigued that I bought it anyway. Then, two weeks later, I saw a poster for T'ai Chi Ch'uan classes. That was in May 1978, and I have been studying and practicing it ever since.
