Tai Chi is a Chinese martial art with strong emphasis on defence techniques and has many health benefits. Tai Chi has evolved over the years in Eastern and Western societies into an effective means of alleviating stress and anxiety. It is a form of ‘moving meditation’ that promotes serenity and inner peace, while building physical and mental strength.
Tai Chi’s full name is Tai Chi Chuan, a Chinese phrase which can be translated as approximately meaning ‘supreme ultimate fist’.
It is what is known as a soft style of martial combat, putting an emphasis on relaxed muscle positions and the use of an opponent’s momentum.
