I like to teach Tai Chi as an all round system of exercise including the self defence aspects of the art but I also like to see the benefits that it brings to my older students - I teach a short form in very small sections (as well as putting the videos on the facebook group page!!!) so that they can remember the moves and practice on their own without having to follow anyone. This is much preferable to just going to a class and following along. I explain the 'fighting' applications for the movements because find it makes it easier to remember the movements if you can put a practical application to them!!!
