Hey all you Taiji fellows. Right now I study Muay Thai, which is a very 'external' style. While I really love it, I'm also intrigued by 'internal' martial arts. I'm thinking of perhaps beginning Taiji sometime in the future, and I've got a few questions... (First let it be known that I have no idea what Taiji is really all about, and I'm just curious) - I've heard 'taiji' and 'taiji quan' before. Is it the same thing or do they differ? If so, please explain the differences. - I wouldn't really be interested in moving about slowly with a bunch of senior citizens... Some people have said that taiji can be taught at a more realistic speed. Is this the case? - What are the main benefits of taiji practice, and can the internal aspects cross over beneficially to my external Muay Thai practice? I might think of some more questions later, but PEACE for now.
