Tai Chi and the Hard Martial Arts


                                         


The Hard Martial Arts


In the 1970s, the world was surprised to see a 19-year-old Canadian win the World Karate Championship. His secret was Tai Chi.

The centering, balance, looseness, and focus Tai Chi promotes will greatly enhance the power and speed of any boxer or martial artist. More than any other exercise, Tai Chi promotes increased reaction speed because it is therapy for not just external muscular performance, but for the mental and neural processes as well.
