WHAT IS TAIJI QUAN

ETYMOLOGICAL MEANING
 
Analysis and understanding of the term Tai Ji Quan require a lot of time and personal involvement
regarding to the fact that the signs of Chinese writing were at the same time ancient drawings transformed throughout history until the present day, and the transcriptions of the letters were also changed. Therefore, we will touch only the first information layer and the definition of ideograms that it contains: 

Tai means the biggest, best, top; 

Ji expresses an analogous concept eg. The ultimate or extreme point (north and south poles for example.); 

Quan literally means fist, is interpreted as a fight, a martial art, but it is also synonymous with movement. 

The term Tai Ji means the Supreme Absolute, in Chinese cosmology that means the Primary Source of all things. It could also be translated as Supreme Principle that precedes the duality of Yin and Yang, from the center, creating four divisions and evolving into eight Trigrams. Accordingly Tai Ji Quan can be defined as a martial art and combat that keeps the balance following Tai Ji principles. In practice, this means that it is a movement that contain martial effectiveness leaving untouched, even actively using, the laws that govern the universe and human life in accordance with the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), breathing techniques and energy balance. From a philosophical perspective Tai Ji Quan is the art of movement that leads to the original Absolute.
