A History of Tai Chi Chuan

For over 2000 years, the Chinese have practiced Tai Chi Chuan (or Tai Chi), primarily to promote health and well-being. Today, millions of people practice Tai Chi daily in parks across China.
The ancient Taoists invented this system of exercise to preserve their health, mind, and body, and to prevent aging. Many students of the art now practice Tai Chi for fitness; however, for purists, Tai Chi is still "played" as an exercise to cultivate physical and spiritual harmony within oneself, as a system for defending oneself from disease, or in a philosophical way, "defending oneself from oneself."

Tai Chi is a method of relaxation;
a meditation in motion;
balance and harmony of the
body and mind as one.

Practiced daily, Tai Chi is
an excellent stress
management technique

Tai Chi Chuan is one of the original systems of ancient Chinese martial arts. The graceful yet outwardly simple techniques are highly effective for self-defense. Tai Chi movements are slow and fluid, evenly defined and circular; ever interchanging and interweaving. Each and every movement flows effortlessly from one into the next, evolving forward or backward. Similar to the teaching of the I Ching (or Book of Changes), Tai Chi Chuan is timeless and boundless.
