Tai Chi Chuan – Adult Only Program
The art of Tai Chi Chuan can be traced to being over 2,000 years old, however the forms practiced today have about a 400-year-old history. The values have remained constant throughout time with improved health, relaxation for the mind, and combat application through physics. The name (Tai Chi Chuan) means Grand Ultimate Fist, however to view it as a mere means of self defense would be to grossly under estimate its values. Today people worldwide are finding out what the Chinese have known since the Yellow Emperor’s Classic that a body in motion is healthier than one that sits. It was reasoned that water that sits stagnates; where as water that run is purer. This same reasoning was applied to ones health. The slow circular motions, after repetitive practice has been found to produce a calming state of mind, as the player is able to practice without having to think about what move is next. The increased oxygen to the lungs provides greater “Chi”, the life energy force that controls how much energy we have. Many people see remarkable changes in health through daily practice.
