Taijiquan taiji


Taijiquan originates from the Martial Art - WuShu - and is mostly done in slow motion. Each form and style is based on its own principles and theories. In Martial Art exists a certain order in the exercises and the movements. this order is created in a certain style. The order is done in a way that it can also be used in fight. In this order are different techniques so that you can win a fight. In Taiji you also see that there is a certain order in the exercises and in the movements. Taiji developed from the same movements as Martial Art. The difference between Taiji and Wushu is in speed of the movements - Taiji is done in a slower way. Therefore one can develop a more internal style, where the breathing and flow of Qi has to be coordinated. Because of the slow movements of Taiji it is also very good to work on ones health.

One will see and learn how those movements are done and what they are used for. The correct execution movements are stressed in those lessons. Every part of a form and every movements opens certain meridians in ones body is therefore also healing for the connected internal organs. It is said that by repeating certain movements and exercisses which are good for ones health, one lives longer.....
