Introduction


The Chinese people have been practising the art of Tai Chi Chuan for centuries. In fact it is practiced to such an extent that, in the past, it has drawn the bewildered attention of tourists. All over China many Chinese rise early to practise their Tai Chi movements in the park, on the roof tops, in car parks and on balconies, in fact anywhere they can find a bit of space. Some people practise in groups and some prefer to practise alone. Many people in the West are under the impression that Tai Chi is only for the elderly. This is incorrect, ideally Tai Chi should be taught from an early age. For the last thirty-nine years I have been practising the Taoist Arts which originated in China. I have found Tai Chi Chuan particularly helpful. Tai Chi is excellent for reducing mental stress, and also for reducing tension in the muscles of the body.
