Tai Ji Quan (Tai Chi Chuan):
Internal Martial Art (developing and using energy)
Phisical - Psichic - Spiritual Discipline Harmonious and Healthy Suitable for all ages
Ancient martial discipline born as a Kung Fu evolution (mainly of the Shaolin soft styles) and aiming to obtain the optimum health by opening the energy channels in the human body. It also meant to widen the mental powers and our self-consciousness, while teaching the combat (considered in its maximum expression, making the most of the internal energy that goes along with every single movement, like a shadow following the body).
A poetical invitation to practise Tai Ji Quan:
In a dance of wonderful movements, light as wind or clouds caressing the sky, find the supreme harmony in unity with all, in a dimension where space and time vanish into nothing.
