Chinese Martial Arts At It's Best!

Tai Chi for beginners

Each movement in our Tai Chi Class helps the practitioner gain awareness of how to release tension, while exercising within a comfortable range of motion. Though most people take up Tai Chi for the tremendous health benefits, others are intrigued by the fact that the style is actually a highly effective martial art. Shaolin Kung Fu Centers is one of the few modern schools that can teach the complete system of Tai Chi. Whether you choose this art for health or self-defense, or both, you will quickly discover how much calmer and more at peace you feel after every class.

Why Tai Chi

What is Tai Chi? Well, the Chinese have found something that flows through the human body and it is called "chi." In English it roughly translates as "vital energy" or "energy force (sometimes referred to as life force)." This chi flows through a certain path throughout the body that is referred to as meridians. Regular practice of Tai Chi moves will help open up these meridians so that chi can flow freely throughout the body. Therefore, the first benefit someone will feel from regular attendance of their Tai Chi classes is an increase in energy or life force.

Today, many people are practicing Tai Chi, it is the number one recommendation from doctors and chiropractors as one of the better ways to improve your energy, balance, muscle tone and health in general. Give Tai Chi a try and experience for yourself the great impact it can have on your life!
