Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan (or “Grand Ultimate Fist”) is an ancient Chinese Martial Art, and when performed in a slow and relaxed manner like moving meditation, calms the mind and releases the mental and physical tensions of our modern stressful lifestyle. Studies have shown that daily practice of Tai Chi is a great form of exercise for men and women of all ages and levels of physical fitness. For practicing Martial Artists, Tai Chi is great way to cross-train, complement, and create balance between “hard” and “soft” techniques.
