The fundamental principle of Tai Chi Chuan is a must for a beginner, so that he or she will know correct way to execute movements.
Other things enquirer of Tai Chi Chuan would like to know is – “What’s in for me?”
Particularly skeptics who see this as slow-moving, apparently energy-less, and senior-people related martial arts.
“Can this help me???”
If I say – “Yes, it can help!”. You may also doubt my words. I don’t mind that. But, how about keeping an open mind and you try it out for yourself. You will see effects over time. And if you don’t, then, you are not doing it correctly!
Sorry, no catch here! :)
Tai Chi Chuan may ‘appear’ to be slow – but this is only for practicing. It actual combat application – you should be able to move extremely fast in order for it to be of use.
The apparent energy-less motion is in fact energy in disguise. The energy gathered and harnessed in Tai Chi is not brute force – but vital energy, Qi that is even more potent than physical strength and energy.
Incidentally – yes, it seems more senior people practice Tai Chi Chuan than younger people, for health reasons. But international champion male and female Tai Chi exponents in China were been trained since childhood. And there are a lot of young adults learning and practicing this art. Hmm… should I still say senior-related???
It does bring a lot of benefits to anyone who practices it religiously, and in particular – correctly. And best thing is – benefits can be limitless, and may cover every aspects of your life! Try it for yourself!
