Tai-Chi - THE GREAT PURPOSE

Taiji has evolved over centuries from its beginning as 'the Supreme Ultimate Fist' martial art to become a means of inner refinement; a science of body mechanics; meditation; health and relaxation.

While a state of health and relaxation is conceptually easy to grasp, it is difficult to achieve and requires dedication and indeed 'learning how' to relax.

The continual contraction of muscles, bones, tendons and muscles and their subsequent release during tai-chi exercises are a refined form of qigong or energy cultivation handed down over centuries by authentic masters.
Relaxation occurs as a result of learning to 'release' prior to 'relax'
