Tai Chi is recognized by medical experts as a practical and effective alternative to expensive drugs and therapies to control chronic diseases and to live a full life until the end of our days.
Legend says about Tai Chi that several hundred years ago, a Taoist monk named Zhang Sang Feng who lived in the Wudang Mountains saw how a crane and a snake were fighting. The crane, although it tried to nail its beak in the snake didn’t succeed, since this always eluded it. Zhang saw how softness could overcome harshness, and how the idea of yielding to the enemy's strong force and hitting its weak part might have practical application in the martial arts.
Originally, Tai Chi is an internal martial art. A good illustration of Tai Chi is the symbol of Yin-Yang. The search for balance between two opposing forces. Chi (Qi) refers to energy. All the elements in the nature would be structured according to that energy. Every person, animal or plant has its own energy or Chi, which tends to be in balance. When this does not happen, it is when health problems and diseases manifest themselves.
