The Vancouver Dojo offers adult tai chi classes in Vancouver for beginners and experienced practitioners.
Tai chi chuan refers first to the Daoist concept of the complete and universal balancing of all polarities. It can be also used to describe a great artist or leader: the cellist achieved a level of “tai chi” in their performance.
Chuan means fist. Unfortunately this term can be misunderstood.
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.
These martial arts were not tools of violence or aggression. In fact, in ancient China, the fist concept was a symbol of empowerment and self-fulfillment.
