INDIANA UNIVERSITY T'AI CHI CH'UAN CLUB

ABOUT T'AI CHI CH'UAN

T'ai Chi Ch'uan is a Chinese martial art that emphasizes balance and body coordination rather than muscle strength. It requires relaxation of the mind and body and is therefore not only practiced for developing physically, but also mentally. The set of Tai Chi movements can be practiced slowly as a form of meditation or can be adapted for self defense training. Anyone can practice regardless of age, gender or athletic ability.

 

The regular practice of T'ai Chi Ch'uan helps increase body coordination, balance, overall fitness and health. It has also helped many students increase their concentration, lower their stress and anxiety levels and they have found that their academic studies have benefited greatly.
