太極拳 Tai Ji Quan – Tai Chi

     Famous for its leisurely, smooth movements, Tai Chi in its original form was a martial art for fighting but now is mostly practiced for relaxation and health. The name comes from the Yin yang diagram and it embodies the traditional Chinese theory of ‘polar opposites’ by displaying an equal balance of soft and hard force; low and high postures; empty and full forms; and static or dynamic skills.

     Five major schools formed over the four centuries of its practice. The most popular today, the gentle Yang style, is known for its long graceful movements and suitability for all types of people of all ages.

     Routines include – 10 form, Beijing 24, 32 Sword, 36 Fan, 42 International Fist, Tai Chi Spear, Push hands, 42 International Sword.
