About T’ai Chi Chih! Joy Thru Movement
T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) was originated by Justin Stone in 1974 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Consisting of 19 movements and 1 pose, TCC generates, circulates and balances the Vital Force or Chi helping to improve health, creativity, performance and intuition.
T’ai Chi Chih means “Knowledge of the Supreme Ultimate”. It is not a martial art and is completely nonviolent. Young and old alike find it easy to learn and practice.
TCC has spread throughout the world by those who have experienced its great benefits. It is a moving discipline that brings peace and serenity to those who practice regularly.
T’ai Chi Chih (TCC) is a made up of 19 easy-to-learn movements and one pose. It is not a martial art or exercise.
TCC’s focus is on the development and balancing of energy, called Chi. TCC is easy to learn in about 8 classes and doesn’t require physical fitness or coordination. The very old and very young alike can learn and benefit from it.
“What is T’ai Chi Chih?” by Justin Stone, originator of T’ai Chi Chih
The circulation and balancing of the Chi is the great secret of life. It is a very valuable exercise that affects the inner organs as well as the muscular structure. T’ai Chi Chih is a moving meditation, with far-reaching benefits. The slow, soft movements have a real effect on blood pressure, weight control and other physical aspects, but TCC goes much deeper than physical therapy.Most students feel the effects of the practice very quickly, so it is not necessary to accept results as a matter of faith. Students who realize that practice is absolutely necessary often experience profound changes during the eight-week beginning course.T’ai Chi Chih, unlike ancient forms, is easy and relaxing to do and seems to be what this tense and busy world needs. Perhaps it will bring not only peace to the world when enough people do it, but also an inner peace to the individuals who practice it.
