There are three aspects of T’ai chi: Health, Meditation, and Martial Art. T’ai Chi as a martial art concentrates on using your opponent’s movements and center of gravity to effectively redirect the attack with appropriate responses. T’ai Chi used for health purposes concentrates on our internal energy and breath. Practicing the movements using correct body alignments improves our mental alertness, balance, coordination and strength. T’ai Chi Ch’uan practice shows favorable effects on the following chronic conditions: stroke, heart failure, high blood pressure, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia, arthritis and improved immune system.
