Tai Chi - China's gift to the world

AdvantagesStronger muscles, better balance and teaches discipline

DisadvantagesNeeds time and patience

"Tai Chi, which means 'supreme ultimate fist', is an ancient Chinese Martial Art practised all over the world. What makes Tai Chi so attractive to such a variety of people (both young and old, male and female) is the fact that it does not focus on fast and hard movements like other Martials Arts, such as Karate and Kung Fu. Instead Tai Chi must be practised in a relaxed state, and all the movements are practised and in a slow and flowing state. Don't ..." Read review

AdvantagesRelaxing, improves health, fitness and well-being

DisadvantagesNone

"...the Chinese Martial Art of Tai Chi with Peter Warr in Milton Keynes in late 1997, and decided a year later to train to become a qualified Coach. I was bitten by the bug! There are five main styles of Tai Chi - Li (or Lee), Chen, Sun, Wu and Yang, of which Yang style is my "speciality". For each style there are a series of routines, or Forms, to be learned.

Tai Chi - Chinese Physical Culture

AdvantagesCheap, relaxing and enjoyable at any level.

DisadvantagesOne sometimes feels there is a lot to learn!

"The ancient art of Tai Chi is known throughout the world as a very calm and relaxing form of exercise. Like many of the oriental martial diciplines there are different systems and variations. For example the Yang Style seems to be perhaps the best known generally, although the Lee Family Style covers the whole of Chinese Physical Culture. Tai Chi (Lee Style) includes some very calming breathing exercises, very similar in fact to Yoga, known as Ki ..." Read review

Tai Chi Release the power within

AdvantagesBenefical to your health for stress relief etc

DisadvantagesFew if any

"I started doing Tai Chi a few weeks ago, my friend started first and she encouraged me to go along as i had always been interested in this sort of thing i agreed. As most people who know anything in the martial arts field Tai Chi is more of a relaxed form, however you could not go as far to say that Tai Chi was a weak form, oh no. As i understand "Chi" as it is known is an energy that flows around our bodies, much like you associate our physical ..." Read review

Fit for life

AdvantagesCan be practised at home

DisadvantagesNone

"...the Yang short form of Tai Chi almost ten years ago, and although i don't practice quite as often as i should, i believe that it has benefited me enormously. It is the gentlest of the martial arts, and can be learned by all age groups, and does not discriminate between the sexes. My first class containing far more women than men. I recommend that if you wish to learn, that you do go to a professionally run class; though there are a proliferation ..." Read review

Tai Chi for Arthritis

Advantageseasy, safe and anyone can do it

Disadvantagesfinding a suitable class / time can be hard

"Tai Chi is a martial art that is now done more often for health benefits than for fighting. I have severe arthritis, and had had to give up most physical activities, and was using a wheelchair to go out. I was asked to review a tai chi video, aimed specifically at people with arthritis, and I have never looked back. My mobility and balance have improved, the wheelchair is getting dusty and my blood pressure is down. In fact, I now teach this ..." Read review

Taoist Tai Chi-Society of Great Britain.

AdvantagesSuppleness & relaxation very social.

DisadvantagesIt,s addictive!

"I have been attending Tai Chi classes for over 6 years now. I am currently a beginners instructor and have recently started my second class. The classes usually last about 2 hours each, but we do have a break for refreshments halfway through. The idea of this form of Tai Chi is to make it available to everybody, and is a none profit making association and is a registered charity. It is a great way of making new friends and enjoying yourself. Do ..." Read review
