Chen style Tai Chi was created by the Chen family of Henan Province, China, over six hundred years ago. It is an internal martial art that promotes health and longevity, along with self defense. Chen Tai Chi can be fast or slow, offensive or defensive, neutralizing or overpowering. Abdominal breathing is used in Tai Chi to help focus the mind and cultivate Chi (energy). Other health benefits include decreased stress and anxiety, improved flexibility, balance, agility, and increased energy and stamina.
