What is Tai Ji   

 


Tai Ji – in English: Taichi, is a major division of the traditional Chinese martial art – Wushu.

 

Tai Ji derived its name from the philosophical term “Tai Ji” which first appeared in The Book of Changes (Yi Jing) written anonymously during the Zhou Dynasty (221 B.C.~11 century): “In all changes exists taiji, which cause the two opposites in all things. The two opposites cause the four seasons and the eight natural phenomena.” Here the eight phenomena denote the heaven, the earth, thunder, wind, water, fire, mountains and lakes……

 

Tai Ji is the source of everything. It involves highest, extreme, absolute and so on.
