What is taiji chuan?
Taiji chuan is a Chinese martial art practiced daily by millions of people around the world for its health, meditative, and self-defense benefits. As a health exercise, taiji helps correct balance, tone the internal organs, improve digestion and optimize cardio-respiratory fitness. A form of moving meditation, it calms the mind and fosters correct stress management – its movements promote cultivation and proper circulation of qi (vital energy) throughout the body. As a martial art, taiji nourishes a sense of confidence while strengthening the body and mind. It is based on the principle of “softness overcoming hardness,” hence it is practiced slowly to develop control, awareness, and to build internal power.

What is the 24 Form?
The 24 Form is a simplified routine based on the movements of the traditional Yang style form. It is a good form for beginners, as it can be learned in a relatively short period of time and takes only five minutes to perform. Yang style is characterized by broad open postures, graceful lines, and a smooth even pace of movement.
