Qigong (/ˈˈɡɒŋ/),[1] qi gongchi kung, or chi gung (simplified Chinese气功traditional Chinese氣功pinyinqìgōngWade–Gilesch‘i kung; literally: ‘Life Energy Cultivation’) is a holistic system of coordinated body posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial arts training.[2] With roots in Chinese medicinephilosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi), translated as “life energy”.[3]

Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and calm meditative state of mind. Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreationexercise and relaxationpreventive medicine and self-healingalternative medicinemeditation and self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.


Tai chi (taiji), short for T’ai chi ch’üan, or Tai ji quan (pinyin: tàijíquán; 太极拳), is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of tàijíquán are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements.

Today, tai chi has spread worldwide. Most modern styles of tai chi trace their development to at least one of the five traditional schools: ChenYangWu (Hao)Wu and Sun. All of the former, in turn, trace their historical origins to Chen Village.
