Tai chi is the more often used name for tai chi chuan. It is an ancient form of martial arts that can be used to greatly improve your health.
Specifically, it can help the well being of your body, and to create a balance between your mind and your body.
Because it can also be used as an actual fight technique, there are many different variations and forms of Tai chi.
In total, Tai chi has five traditional schools: Wu, Chen, Sun, Hao, and Yang.
When combined with the theory of balance, Tai chi can help to create a state of mental calm, as well as clear thinking, within the mind. At the same time, the body will fuse with the tranquil, calming processes enforced during the training and the practice.
