Taijiquan (T'ai Chi) and other Internal Martial Arts Articles:


Finding Qi in Internal Martial Arts

Internal power manifests when there is a merging of physical mechanics with what we might term physical-energetic poles. In terms of the internal ­martial arts, it is the result of a ­special kind of force brought about by solving the puzzle at the core of the healing and martial arts: how to find the proper relationship be­tween energy and structure.


Internal Martial Arts (Q&A)

Knee Warm-Up

Knee injuries are regrettably common among martial artists and people in general. They’re stubborn and slow to heal. Using massage and self-applied acupressure, this exercise nourishes the knee with blood and qi. It can speed the repair process and, better yet, prevent injuries from occurring.


Neijia FAQ

The term "Neijia" is used to refer to all internal martial arts. "Nei" means "internal" and "jia" means "family or "style". "Neigung" is also used often and means internal "work" or development.

A philosophy subsumes principles. In taijiquan there are abundant principles to fill many inch-thick books published. All these principles tie-in with the philosophy of taiji. Taiji is the draw-string of a net of principles. To talk about principles without touching on philosophy makes for diverse beliefs and different schools


Qi and Quan

Qi has many meanings in Chinese; the most common one is air. In the context of Taiji (T´ai Chi), it means the internal energy. By Dr. Paul Lam

Strategies for Improving Tai Chi

To improve your tai chi you must understand the tai chi principles and practice regularly and with awareness.


Taiji and Music

It cannot be ignored that the authentic taijiquan which existed not too many decades ago did not have access to boom boxes much less iTunes.
