Taijiquan however is not the exercise for the elderly or the sick.
Taijiquan brings you into the beat of life it nurtures and governs the life energy chi. There was a reason why this skill was kept secret by the ancient masters. The formulae for healing and longevity, the direct relationship with the force that courses through the universe are not taught by the ancient or today's masters.
Taijiquan originated several centuries ago in China as a martial art. As it was developed in monasteries it also gained a very deep focus on oneself and granted peace of spirit to the monks who always found the most natural and healthy ways to strengthen and train the body and spirit.
However the purpose of practicing tai chi today is to turn the struggle against our fellow man into the struggle with ourselves, the struggle for discipline, endurance and persistence. The battle for our own health and longevity, a healthy body and spirit. It teaches patience, self discipline and what is most important to master ourselves and turn our impatience into patience, arrogance into tolerance, to be wise and clear.
