also pronounced Taiji. classified as an internal martial art, it is a taoist fighting art that originated from Pin Yin village in northern china and developed from there into many different styles over time, but mainly branched from the very oldest form of Tai Chi: Chen style Taijiquan
so far, the main styles are as follows:
Chen (style)
Wu (style)
Sun (style)
Yang (style)
Hao (style)

being an extremely misunderstood art, Tai Chi or Taiji is not just a mere exercise. it is a fighting art dedicated to taking down the opponent using no effort by either disabling them, knocking them out, or killing them.
I've been studying Chen style Taiji Quan for about 3 and a half years now.
