What is tai chi?
When most people say 'tai chi' they mean tai chi for health.
Tai chi for health is a simplified, non-martial health exercise adapted from taijiquan. It is intended to improve fitness and wellbeing.
Taijiquan (supreme ultimate fist) is an advanced martial arts method based on the yin/yang principle.
This exciting martial art involves weaponry and unarmed combat.
The art is physically and mentally challenging; but in a very different way to mainstream martial arts.
There are no press-ups, no sit-ups, no circuit training, no weight lifting, no running, no sweating or straining.
Meaning & purpose
Every taijiquan movement has a purpose.
The student must understand why they are doing the movement, otherwise that movement is meaningless and most likely incorrect.
What is the movement for? How does it operate?
We ensure that our students gain a comprehensive grasp of the Art.
Not all tai chi is
equal. Just as there are
different models of cars, makes of computers and universities of varying
calibres, so too are there
different kinds of tai chi.
