  • CHALLENGE
  • The term,“TAI CHI”, originates from “ZHOUYI”, it is the most important philosophical thinking in Chinese traditional culture. TAI CHI stands for the Status of Order in the universe. With regard to various natural phenomenon, after a long time of observation, Chinese ancients have recognized that everything in the universe is Opposition against Integration, therefore, two words, “Yin” and “Yang”, have been used to generalize them. It means, everything and every phenomenon in universe includes “Yin” and “Yang”, as well as two aspects of Appearance and Cultivation, they also stand for “The Sky” and “ The Earth”.
