Event description

Description

Tai Ji Quan is a Chinese Martial art that has preserved through the mists of time to present day and is recognised world wide as a low impact sport that can confer well being to almost anyone. Combining slow soft movements in a shadow boxing style with abdominal breathing patterns.

When practised moderately it is observed by medical practitioners world wide to slow and often reverse many common degenerative symptoms of ageing and illness. At higher levels of practice its self defence and martial properties are subtle and highly practical to say the least. As an "internal" martial art, it's focus is primarily on taking control and ownership of the soft tissues and central nervous system of the body. From contraction to expansion, raising, sinking, turning and directing the natural flow of the body's innate vital energy or "Chi". It is this characteristic of the "internal" martial arts that make them so suitable for the practise of energy cultivation and rehabilitation of people all walks of life and at any age.

The term taichi(Tai Ji) means the "Grand Ultimate" and relates to the ancient Chinese Taoist philosophy of time and change which observes the forces of energy in nature with the view to harmonising or lives with the timeless rhythms of nature and the cosmos. This goal of balance and harmony is symbolised best by the now famous Taoist yin-yang ☯ diagram.
