Most if us do not need nor even want to learn a martial art, which is what tai chi is. We just need to move more beneficially in ways that enhance overall health in general, and more specifically strengthen and balance, increase endurance, improve circulation and concentration, and many other functions. If you practice tai chi—form, basics et. al—while being observant, you will see that the body becomes aware of the most beneficial way to move. As though it has mind. This is really basic tai chi, but bears repeating.
