Taijiquan

Tai chi chuan (simplified Chinese: 太极拳; traditional Chinese: 太極拳; pinyin: tàijíquán; Wade-Giles: t'ai4 chi2 ch'üan2) is an internal Chinese martial art often practiced for health reasons. Tai chi is typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, health and longevity. Consequently, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some of tai chi chuan's training forms are well known to Westerners as the slow motion routines that groups of people practice together every morning in parks around the world, particularly in China.
Today, tai chi has spread worldwide. Most modern styles of tai chi trace their development to at least one of the five traditional schools: Chen, Yang, Wu/Hao, Wu and Sun.

太極拳
太極拳,太極門對其主要拳法嘅總稱呼,屬內家武學。太極拳呢個名幾時開始有已難考正,傳聞係由宋元時代太極張三丰創造,但係現代太極門五大派(陳家太極門、楊家太極門、吳家太極門、武家太極門、孫家太極門)叫渠為太極拳,卻係由武家太極拳始創人武禹襄開始。武禹襄兄長武澄清於舞陽鹽店得到王宗岳所著嘅《太極拳論》。武禹襄見而讀之,潛心研究後,心有所悟,始稱其拳為太極拳。嚮武禹襄叫此拳作太極拳之前,楊家太極拳始創人楊露禪嚮北平教拳嗰陣,此拳曾被稱為柔拳、綿拳、化拳、同軟拳。
