태극권 Tai Chi Chung
Tai Chi combines both offensive and defensive applications. Tai Chi is sometimes described as moving meditation. The art contains movements, which are so varied that they put into play every part of the body with harmonious design and graceful patterns. Each form flows with the grace of some aspect of nature, such as the swaying motion of willow branches being coerced by a gentle breeze or clouds slowly changing in shape or form. The movements are performed slowly without using force. The speed of the breathing matches the speed of the movement. Tai Chi Chung develops inner strength, mental calmness, physical well-being, and overall health.
6-month training programs are available for students who wish to specialize in one style.
