Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese martial art. A mysterious Taoist named Zhang San Feng is ascribed as the founder. Many regard Tai Chi Chuan as moving meditation. Actually, it is more like poetry in motion. While Tai Chi Chuan is martial based, it is, however, an art form that requires many years of diligent practice to reach a point of satisfactory. The power of Tai Chi Chuan is hidden in grace. Practitioners should keep in mind that while practicing Tai Chi, one should adhere to the principles such as sinking, weigh shifting, relaxing, and perhaps, most importantly, the body always move as a single unit connected from head to toes (interconnectedness) In Tai Chi Chuan, the legs and the waist drive everything and movements are performed in a flowing and continuous transitions.

The most fascinating aspect associated with Tai Chi is that it is a journey with no destination. It is a way of life. It is something that everyone, regardless of age, gender, and/or ability, can do for the rest of one’s life. Tai Chi not only increases longevity but it also enhances the overall quality of life. When practicing Tai Chi, please remember Tony’s 3 Ps: Practice, Principles, and Pleasure.
