One of the internal martial arts, T'ai Chi Ch'uan enables people to become aware of and gain access to their "chi" or "life force" as the source of their power, not brute force. Slowly, deeply, evenly breathing - dynamically harmonizing body and mind - the form becomes meditation in motion. Concerns dissolve in the patient discipline of a martial art that promotes compassion, gentleness, humility, tranquility and humor.

T'ai Chi Ch'uan instills self-confidence; develops physical health and improves resistance to disease; and enables students to move in balance within the dynamic ebb and flow of their lives.

T'ai Chi Ch'uan's rhythmical breathing, precise postures, and slow movements affect the entire body:
  • Improving the functioning of the internal organs
  • Stimulating and balancing the body's systems
  • Reducing muscle tension, stress and anxiety
  • Strengthening bones and muscles
  • Increasing flexibility of the joints and
  • Enhancing the body's natural recuperative powers.
Overall results contribute to increased longevity.

People of all ages and widely varying physical abilities are attracted to this discipline. Both the fit and the frail can find safe and challenging ways to work within the system.
