Tai Chi is known as a healing art, the internal or soft art of kung fu. The emphasis of the healing aspects of Tai Chi is on Tai Chi's therapeutic value to relieve stress and guide oneself into a state of tranquility.

Tai Chi is in itself very comprehensive in meaning. In the philosophical sense, Tai Chi is the observation of "the way the universe works". Taoists call this the "Tao", and is often translated by Westerners as "the way". Tai Chi was derived from Taoism and its main concern is the unity of yin and yang, the tranquility of mind and improvement of temperament.

The martial art of Tai Chi is based on the concepts of the Yin/Yang relationship. Tai Chi possesses two parts completely different in nature, one part is called Yin and the other is called Yang. Yin and Yang are opposites, but Yin and Yang are in unity while in opposition.

As for the self-defense aspect of Tai Chi, the principle of Tai Chi concerning this is devided into two parts - the yielding force and the unbending force. The yielding force of Tai Chi belongs to Yin and the unbending force of Tai Chi belongs to Yang. When fighting, we use the yielding force of Tai Chi to counteract our opponents attack and the unbending force of Tai Chi to counterattack our opponent.

Those who practice Tai Chi gain a healthy body as well as an alert mind. With the improvement to their health, they are able to concentrate better and to make decisions more effectively. Tai Chi is a motion meditation to harmonize and balance your mine, body and spirit. It is one of the best exercises for people of all ages.
