Martial Arts

Written by Jesse S. Somer

I am very interested in Martial Arts, as I’ve been training in Tai Chi on and off for ten years as well as an Internal Martial Art called Wu Dao Gong for a year and a half. I have searched many websites to find a good one to write about but none seem to compare torepparttar site byrepparttar 116186 actual organization that I am fortunately part of. They are calledrepparttar 116187 Tai Chi Academy and their online magazine can be found at a link from their homepage or at:

What I find so remarkable about this site compared to other martial art sites isrepparttar 116188 variety and depth of information shared with visitors. These people really want to paint a true, honest picture about everything that they do and why they do it. ‘Flow like a river, and be still like a mountain.’ This famous Tai Chi quote epitomizesrepparttar 116189 flowing yet static style of this website. There must be at least a hundred pages about everything from basic school principles for prospective students to recipes for healthy vegetarian food recipes! Martial Arts are a lifestyle to this school and I believe they want to address all aspects of life in a truly holistic approach.

Integrated throughoutrepparttar 116190 site are heaps of photos (most of which are in vibrant color) depictingrepparttar 116191 actual training as well as cool photos of their field trips to China etc. The magazine site itself is separated into main categories such as Archived Features, Testimonials, Archived Interviews, Suggested Reading, and Vegetarian Corner for Non-vegetarians as well as Links.

Underrepparttar 116192 ‘Archived Features’ section is a category entitled ‘Training in Wu Dao Gong’. This couple of pages givesrepparttar 116193 visitor an excellent, detailed perspective onrepparttar 116194 philosophy behind this training. If you are then interested in finding out more you can click onrepparttar 116195 Tai Chi Academy actual Home Page and click onrepparttar 116196 subheading ‘Courses’. There you can read several more in-depth explanations about allrepparttar 116197 aspects ofrepparttar 116198 training from meditation to physical exercises and their effects. They emphasize that emotional and spiritual development are integral to moving forward downrepparttar 116199 path of happiness and peace. They are adamant that this is a course forrepparttar 116200 arts and is not religious in any way.

Carrom is a board game played by 2 or 4 players against each other. The principles of carrom are very similar to pool, snooker or billiards (withoutrepparttar cues). The objective of carrom is to pot all your carrom pieces before your opponent, using skill, determination and a little bit of luck.

Carrom itself in various forms originates from Asia and carrom is played all overrepparttar 116185 world. This game has many names including (Indian billiards, carrum, carom, karum, or karrum). The carrom board and carrom pieces are usually made from wood although acrylic strikers and pieces are often used as well.
