Basic Tai Chi And Qi Gong
Tai Chi (Taiji)
Tai Chi is becoming more and more popular in the United States every day. It is considered an “internal” or “soft” martial art. Tai Chi or Tai Ji, the full term is “Tai Chi Chuan” or Tai Ji Quanis, is translated as “Supreme Ultimate Boxing”. This is one of the oldest forms of internal Kung Fu. Although primarily practiced today as a “moving meditation”, it is wonderful exercise form for improving Qi balance, circulation, concentration and relaxation. Tai Chi is, in origin, a method of fighting. Tai Chi is one of the three internal martial arts of China. The difference between internal and external arts has been debated widely. It can be said that the internal arts are more concerned with how the body controls and generates inner strength, and internal and external energy. The differences don’t mean much, however, because at the highest levels, any martial art tends to reach the same realm of Qi. It is practiced for many reasons, including improving health, breathing and helping to calm your mind through meditation.
Harvard University Article
Researchers at Harvard University published growing evidence which demonstrated that mind-body Tai Chi practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Combined with traditional treatment, Tai Chi appears to be valuable for several medical conditions such as anxiety, depression, back pain, arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Parkinson’s disease, sleep problems and stroke. Participating in Tai Chi may also help to boost the immune system and improve respiratory-circulatory function. It will also burn calories, drastically improve balance, provide cardiovascular benefits, release stress and prolong both the quality and quantity of life.
Through circular motions, Tai Gong exercise serves to improve, re-channel and mobilize Qi flow, increase energy levels, strengthen organs, ligaments and muscles, and improve the transportation of oxygen, energy and nutrients for proper healing and body function. In fact, additional studies conducted by UCLA found that older people who practiced Tai Chi and Qi Gong had a much better immune response against any virus.

In the process of completing our true Shaolin Institute mission, we often face the challenges and vicissitudes of life. However, along that rough road of testing and training, we learn who we really are, and learn how to live with others harmoniously in a challenged society. Our primary mission is to restore character and integrity to humanity; to see the true freedom of self – nature; and to unveil our true nature to live in our own world. We strive to be proactive to adapt ourselves; to develop the ability to respond to any challenges; and to have a clear vision of the true world. We possess the freedom within to choose effectively where our lives are heading.
With that character and integrity, we listen to others with compassion and appreciate others with right speech and righteous action to help and to influence the world around us with positive and harmonious Qi.
As Confucius stated to us over two-thousand years ago, thousands of miles start with a first step. We shall start our first step of this life path with the principle of Dao that our self-nature of freedom allows us to choose what we do daily, weekly, to make wise decisions, with the wisdom of the mind instead of emotions. Let the old mind of habits be “emptied and cleared,” and let us refresh ourselves with clear vision of body and mind and like the morning meadow let us be flowing with Qi. Let us flow with nature. We shall empower ourselves and cultivate our ability to live our life and respond to events and incidents through the correct interpretation instead of reacting or reflecting with emotions or feelings. We shall see the world and see our surroundings with clear eyes. We shall choose happiness instead of gloominess or misfortunes. It is us who see light instead of darkness. It is our responsibility to see life sufferings or challenges as our training opportunities.


Our Tai Chi class is held in a peaceful environment and incorporates Shaolin Qi Gong breathing exercises as a warm- up to help everyone relax. New students will start learning the standard Yang-style, 24-movement form, which is one of the most popular worldwide. From there, we progress onto more traditional forms, such as the Yang 108-movement form and some short Chen-style and Yang sword forms.
