Tai Chi Chuan [Supreme Ultimate Fist]

It is an ancient Chinese body art

originated out of Taoism’s insights

for harmony of body-heart-mind,

energy, physical balance, health,

stress release, and even self-defense;

a practice through mainly a standing position

in a flow of slow, soft and firm rooted movement

without any pause,

energized and disciplined by a pattern of diaphragmatic breathing,

inspired by natural motions of animals and birds

along with our own

in a remarkable grace of ecstasy and dance-like beauty.
