The Benefits of Tai Chi Chuan

Tai Chi is the Chinese word meaning the "grand ultimate" and represents the Chinese belief that Tai Chi is the most refined and the best form of exercise for both health and self defense.

Tai Chi is sometimes written as Tai Qi, T'ai Chi or Taiji, though the pronunciation is the same (tie jee). Likewise, Tai Chi Chuan (the martial art) is also sometimes written as Tai Qi Quan, T'ai Chi Chuan or Taijiquan.

Tai Chi Chuan originated as a martial art form. It also is an excellent exercise method which promotes good health and longevity. The consistent and faithful practice of T'ai Chi is reported to have strengthening effects on people suffering with poor health or chronic illnesses.
