Tai Ji Quan Classes

Instructors: Matt Orishak
Tai Ji Quan or sometimes translated “Supreme Ultimate Boxing” comes from Chinese philosophy and culture. Based on the principles of the I Jing and the philosophy of Lao Zi, Tai Ji is a system of rounded, fluid, balanced movements to be practiced daily for health, peace of mind, and even self- defense. The I Jing says: “Nature is always in motion. Man should strengthen himself without interruption.” Exercise leads to robust health, high spirits, and rational thinking. Tai Ji stresses slow respiration and balanced, relaxed postures and it certainly promotes deep breathing, digestion, the functioning of the internal organs and blood circulation.
