A Martial Art with Many Health Benefits

Tai chi chuan is a martial art that teaches self-defense, self-empowerment and develops physical strength and mental resilience over time.

In China, there is a a longstanding tradition of martial artists who have practiced different styles of the martial arts over the centuries, all of them considered chuan or fist arts.

Tai Chi for Self Defense

The self defense skills developed in traditional tai chi chuan are built on the principle of blending and redirecting the attackers energy.

Techniques that rely on these types of movements allow smaller opponents an opportunity to adequately defend themselves against larger stronger opponents.
