Tai Chi Chuan (Taijiquan) is a centuries old Chinese self-defense discipline for health, relaxation and self-cultivation. Emphasizing relaxation and inner calm rather than physical strength, it can be learned by anyone regardless of age, sex or athletic ability.

Tai Chi Chuan improves circulation, balance and helps to relax and strengthen the nervous system. The stretching movements make the body limber, tone up muscles, and help release tension. The practice creates a sense of well being and is a way of harmonizing body and mind dynamically. It fosters an inner quiet that nourishes awareness. As a martial art, it is one of the "internal schools" based on yielding, deflecting, and redirecting aggressive energy.

Tai Chi Chuan also produces strength physically by the proper repetition of the movements. It generates qi (chi), inner energy, which revitalizes the physical system. In addition, it builds inner strength or jin. Tai Chi masters are famous for their stamina, strength, wisdom and longevity. A calm mind and spirit combined with good health lead to higher levels of skill and self-knowledge.
