History of CBII

Contributors to CBII via James Cravens  

   Practiced by millions of people, Tai Chi (abbreviated for T'ai Chi Ch'uan and is an ancient martial art which today is becoming one of the most popular exercise systems in the world. The phrase T'ai Chi Ch'uan translates from Chinese as "supreme ultimate fist," drawing on the traditional Chinese Taoist beliefs in the interdependence of yin and yang in the body and mind. These opposing forces complement each other and can be complete only when balanced in harmony.  
   Skilled Tai Chi practitioners use the strength of the earth (yin) and the energy (chi) of the heavens (yang) to focus their physical and spiritual energies so that mind and body work together to improve balance, stability, flexibility and skill. 
   Tai Chi exercises are fundamentally holistic, benefiting the whole body as well as the mind. Physical and spiritual benefits can be appreciated by people of all ages, sizes and shapes. Tai Chi is a very adaptable form of exercise that can be practiced anyplace, anytime, without any special equipment. The continuously changing series of postures, known as the form, are designed to achieve a harmonious flow of energy (chi). The movements are coordinated with breathing patterns and done slowly so that the practitioner can focus on changes in balance, flexibility and muscular tension.   What are the Health Benefits?   Reviews of the literature reveal numerous studies on the health benefits of Tai Chi. Most studies focus on the benefits to older people including improving posture, strength and balance, skills which deteriorate in older age, resulting in serious falls and injuries.
