condition. The movements are relaxing and easy to do. Tai Chi can be practiced
anywhere, at any time. No special clothing or equipment are required.

stay calm and relaxed in the hectic pace of today's society. Daily practice
helps to keep both the body and mind clear and free flowing. For martial
artists Tai Chi is an excellent method for developing coordinated body
mechanics which lead to vastly increased speed and power.
