The Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) 太极拳, Pinyin: Taijiquan, a so-called Chinese is internal martial art. The taijiquan is not "just" exercise, qigong (chikung), moving meditative and slow-motion physical training; it is potent healing practice which helps to generate a strong, healthy and disease - free body.
Tai Chi is related to (and which are also based) martial arts outside of the (traditional) Chinese medicine and qigong, and Taoism and the base of the Yijing(Book of Changes).

There are many different styles or families of Tai Chi Chuan. The five which are practiced most commonly today are the Yang, Chen, Wu , Sun, and Woo styles. All Tai Chi styles, however are derived from the original Chen family style.

Some people believe that Tai Chi was developed by a Taoist Priest from a temple in China's Wu Dong Mountains. The legend said that he once observed a white crane preying on a snake, and mimicked their movements to create the unique Tai Chi martial art style. Initially, Tai Chi was practiced as a fighting form, emphasizing strength, balance, flexibility, and speed. Through time it has evolved into a soft, slow, and gentle form of exercise which can be practiced by people of all ages.

'Qin' or 'Chi' means energy. In Yoga, it is called 'Prana'. 'Gong' or 'Kung' means work. Therefore, Qigong means the exercise of your internal energy and it is a 5,000-year-old Chinese healing technique that boost natural immunity as well as prevent and treat ill health.
