Life moves through us by how we move through our Body.
Through Tai Chi, we connect with the flow of Life.
Rather than moving, we are moved. Once we connect with this flow, healing is greatly enhanced, dis-ease dissolves, harmony, and happiness become easier to return to when lost; and with and empty mind, a continual arrival of insights real themselves.
- Richard Anton Diaz (Instructor)
Tai Chi, at it's roots, is a Martial Art.
...but compared to other martial arts Tai Chi involves moving slowly and softly and evenly at a constant pace. Energy is stored within one self and the movements are large and coordinated expanding Tai Chi into a multifunctional exercise, for health, longevity, molding one's character and building better relationships.
Interwoven within the curriculum of martial art training is a strict code of living which cultivates virtue. We call this Tai Chi character development, and it is essential if one wants to grow and develop through a martial art.
It is absolutely necessary to cultivate sincere humility, honest perseverance, tolerance and acceptance of opinions of others, and seriousness of interpersonal relationships.

Through this short form, we learn to absorb, transform, and circulate the three forces that animate all life--the Universal force, the Cosmic force, and the Earth force.These principles access the full spectrum of physical, psychological, and spiritual benefits that Tai Chi can bring.
