Tai Chi Chuan
Tai Chi Chuan (Yang style) is both an ancient and modern discipline.
It is a balanced martial art, incorporating softness and strength, employing precise body mechanics in an ultimately flexible and flowing manner. Challenging to master, yet enjoyable to practice for beginner and expert alike, Tai Chi Chuan is at once an adventure to be explored and a creative reflection of one's inner strength.
Researchers have found that intensive tai chi practice shows some favorable effects on the promotion of balance control, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and has shown to reduce the risk of falls. Tai Chi's gentle, low impact movements burn more calories than surfing and nearly as many as downhill skiing.
Tai Chi Chuan translates into “Supreme Ultimate Fist”, and is one of the finest products of Chinese philosophy and culture. Based upon the principles of I-Ching (book of changes) and the philosophy of Yin and Yang (universal opposites), Tai Chi has been practiced for thousands of years as both a martial art and, moreover, a long-proven method of healthful exercise.
