Relax Harder! The Secret of Tai Chi Power.
We often hear skeptics say, “I can see how tai chi can be useful for relaxing the body and calming the mind. But I don’t see how something so relaxing can be useful as a martial art.”
The response from experienced martial artists is, “How can it NOT be useful as a martial art, if it cultivates a relaxed body and a calm mind.”
In fact, if you are not learning to relax the body and calm the mind, then you are not learning a martial art.
