Taichi is a noncompetitive martial art known for both its defense techniques and its health benefits. It has deep roots in martial arts, Chinese medicine and philosophy. If done correctly and with regular practice, Taichi integrates the mind and body, which improves health, vigor and well-being. Daily practice greatly strengthens the legs and feet, opens all the joints and energetically grounds your center. The over-all training also greatly increases Chi (life-force/bio-electric energy) flow inside the body, boosting your immune system and helping to stabilize your spirit as your body and mind become more integrated.
