There are two types of Tai Chi students.
Those that want to learn martial arts.
And those that do not.
Since Tai Chi is a martial art, it begs the question "What else can you gain from it?"
It turns out quite a lot. You can learn to:
Relax before an important speech or negotiation.
Improve daily balance - perfect for walking on slippery icy winter roads.
Gain control of your hour, day and life.
Slowly learn to listen to your body so you can increase healing.
Reconnect with nature and the earth.
How do you go about earning these benefits? You practice slowing down and going inward. You practice the form.
