​A NOTE ON TERMINOLOGY--------------
    Please try to use these names--
  FALL PREVENTION TAI CHI:
      LEVEL ONE (formerly basic)
      LEVEL TWO (formerly advanced)
      LEVEL THREE (formerly additional)

We know that some instructors prefer to use other course titles, such as "Introduction to tai chi."  That's okay, but at some point, please do let your students know the actual name of the particular form you are teaching.

For those certified to teach Sun 73, it is fine to refer to this as Fall Prevention Tai Chi Long form. After all, the Fall Prevention Tai Chi movements all come out of Sun 73.
