In the beginning it was a martial art… it evolved consonant with Confucianism and Taoism… training involves 5 elements: taolu – solo hand, weapons, and posture…neigong & qigong – breathing, movement, and awareness…tuishou – response…sanshou – defense. Today you can see the Tai Chi Tango performed every morning by women in a park across from the Hilton Financial District in San Francisco at 750 Kearny Street. They are unperturbed by tourists, gawkers, and old men with cameras. Check it out…you’ll be enthralled.
