Because of the sophisticated nature of T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Qigong, it is recommended, that before beginning this or any program of study, you should first consult your physician or therapist for advice on whether or not you should embark on the physical activity required by this or any program of study in T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Qigong. Water Tiger School, Water Tiger Services, their instructors, and their students are not responsible in any manner whatsoever for any injury which may occur through participation in this or any program of study in T'ai Chi Ch'uan and Qigong.
