Tai Chi Chuan means "Grand Ultimate Fist" in Chinese. It was the ultimate fighting art for one reason. It held the keys to the only sure-fire door to personal mastery; body awareness and self-knowledge. Learn to improve yourself through relaxation, increased body awareness, balance and flexibility, while also learning to defend oneself with minimal use of effort by applying the concept of accommodation.
