No matter where you learn it, though each style may word it differently, the energy expended in combat is the same when performing a singular technique. Whether a punch, kick, or throw, if the body is coordinated at the single moment of execution, the speed, the feeling, it is all the same.

2021 started with a big jump as I just went live with a second YouTube Channel. Yes, a second Channel. On the creator side, it is a bit daunting as I am starting from scratch with 0 views, 0 comments, 0 likes (or dislikes), and 0 subscribers. However, I feel it to be necessary to bring the right content to the right people.
You see, I've been looking at release schedules and topics and I have noticed that although there are viewers that enjoy the variety of topics I post, there is a very large imbalance when it comes to the frequency of Kung Fu and Tai Chi video releases. So on one end, if someone is only subscribed to me for kung fu content, they will skip a week when a tai chi video shows up, or if they subscribed to me for Tai Chi content they have to wait to upwards of a month between videos, and that had to change!
Here it is:
Tai Chi with Sifu Kuttel
What can we expect from both channels?
My main channel will continue the weekly video schedule with releases on Thursdays however, all the content will be Choy Li Fut related. For 2021 our focuses will be: Kung Fu Combo, 3 Section Staff, 2 Section Staff, Staff, Gim (straight sword), and some stretching/Choy Li Fut footwork +/Forms videos too.
Tai Chi with Sifu Kuttel will be exactly that, with a 3 video per month release schedule and new videos posted on Tuesdays it will bring more content to the Tai Chi viewers without having to wait through the kung fu videos. The Tai Chi Channel will have Tai Chi Connection, At Home Tai Chi Training, Tai Chi Fan, Tai Chi Flute, and Tai Chi Jian techniques and training.
So although it is starting over from scratch, I think it's the right step in bringing consistent content for lovers of kung fu and tai chi, and the best part is for those who enjoy both, you get two videos a week! And if you are a part of my Patreon, with new videos every Wednesday, you'll have 3 videos a week and no repeats!!!
So feel free to check out the new channel and let me know what you think!
