Tai Chi is a number of things to its various practitioners; it is a meditation system, a gentle exercise, a fighting / self defence system. It has been proved to have many health benefits such as improving heart conditions and reducing the incidence of falling in the elderly. However for most of its practitioners it is believed to promote all round good health.
