  • “Taichi is an internal Chinese martial art, invented by the ancient Chinese, of maintaining your health through regular defense training, health benefits, and meditation. It is also the best example of "achieving oneness between man and nature" that I am aware of. Through our own body (i.e. our four limbs, internal organs, blood and breath) taichi allows us to directly experience and emulate the natural phenomena that make up our universe.”
    —Ju Ming
