Tai Chi, short for Tai Chi Quan(太極拳), is a martial art that was originated centuries ago in China. It is characterized by a series of continuous, circular, slow, relaxed and smooth flowing movements that take nature as a source of inspiration.

The practice of Tai Chi has been proved to have numerous health benefits for people of all ages and health conditions, from relieving stress and improving sleep quality, to improving balance, flexibility and muscle strength, therefore helping relief tension exerted on the joints, with some studies even suggesting that it can boost cognitive function and help treat multiple kinds of health problems.

Besides the physical component of Tai Chi, there is also the philosophical aspect of it, which is equally rich. The Chinese word for Tai (太) means Supreme and the word for Chi/Ji(极) means Principle, so Tai Chi can be interpreted as Supreme Principle. It is represented by the Yin-Yang and its core lies on the concept of dualism, that describes how apparently opposite forces in the natural world are actually complementary and interconnected, like brightness and darkness, day and night, positive and negative which seem to exist individually but, in truth, can’t exist separately from their seemingly opposite individual force. Tai Chi seeks to find the balance between these forces, and harmonize them together through a coordination of physical movements and controlled breathing which ultimately ends up bringing balance and harmony into our own being.

Tai Chi in Taipei’s goal is to make accessible to the foreign community in Taipei and to the locals the wisdom and beauty of this martial art as well as the physical and mental benefits that derive from its practice. We do this by teaching both the physical as well as the philosophical part to small groups of people through our Tai Chi classes. Anyone who is interested in Tai Chi is welcome to join us. Beginners or experts, locals or foreigners, youngsters or elders, everyone is welcome.

Welcome to join our hiking in Taiwan meetup group,and we do taichi on the mountain every Sunday.

Best Regards

Peter Wu

Take a break from your day-to-day life by doing something different and come join us in Daan Park to practice Tai Chi! Tai Chi, short for Tai Chi Quan(太極拳), is a martial art that was originated centuries ago in China. It is characterized by a series of continuous, circular, slow, relaxed and smooth flowing movements that take nature as a source of inspiration. It has been proved by numerous studies that the continuous practice of this martial art has several mental and physical benefits, from reducing stress, improving sleep quality and helping to boost cognitive function, to promoting weight loss, improving balance, strengthening muscles, therefore, reducing tension exerted on the joints amongst others. If you wish to reap any of these benefits or are simply interested in the art of Tai Chi, you are welcome to join our classes! About the class: We focus on a more personal approach and we do so by having classes with a small number of people. This allows the master to give more of his attention to each individual student.

Class Fee: 100NT for first comers. 200NT for per individual class. Please pay your fees before the class, thanks. Don't forget to RSVP so we can know who to count on and wait for.
