T'ai Chi Ch'uan (or Taijiquan or Tai Chi) is a martial art originating from China. It is widely known for its forms, which are generally practiced as a series of unhurried, flowing movements. Do not be fooled by appearances: correctly taught, there is a lot more to T'ai Chi Ch'uan than meets the untrained eye. T'ai Chi Ch'uan is an internal martial art, meaning that practitioners focus on relaxation, perception, posture and body alignment. Rather than using localised muscular strength, the structure of the body as a whole is used to generate, neutralise or evade attacks. There is nothing mystical about this, it is simple body mechanics and physics.
An internal Martial Art originating from Shanxi Province, Xingyiquan is characterized by simple, direct body movements; forward, linear motion; and an emphasis on very strong strikes generated by body motion and placement. Xing Yi fighting theory is based on the Five Elements: earth, water, fire, metal, and wood. Visit some of the websites listed below for more information.
