Tai Chi Observations
Many people come to practice Tai Chi Chuan for good reasons: the most common reasons are better balance, “relaxation”, and maintaining or improving health.
However, there can be a tendency to forget that Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art.
In this article I share WHY it is important to remember that Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art, even if you never intend to use it for that purpose.
People pursue Tai Chi Chuan practice for a variety of reasons: health, fall prevention / balance, well-being, improvement in martial arts and other sports, and for relaxation / de-stressing.
I can make the case that to deeply relax and de-stress is the most central experience in Tai Chi Chuan practice that explains all the other benefits.
