PEA 144. T'ai Chi Ch'uan. 3 Credits.

This course will be the study of a martial art that combines movement with chi. T'ai Chi Ch'uan uses the principals of Yin-Yang and the Five Element theories and is compatible with Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and Chinese herb treatment. The name refers to the Chinese concept of the Grand Ultimate, or of Yin and Yang. T'ai Chi Ch'uan is performed slowly and with smooth continuous motion, unlike most other martial arts that are performed with speed and power. T'ai Chi Ch'uan builds power internally and does not rely on body strength alone and can be practiced from childhood into old age with no risk to the practitioner. The study of movement, skeletal structure and T'ai Chi as a Meditative Art will be included in the courses.
