 Mind/Body Tools for Peak Performance: Clarity in the Words: Languaging the Chinese Arts of Self Healing and Personal Vitality Enhancement  

There are literally thousands of kinds of Qigong (Ch'i Kung). Taiji (T'ai Chi) is only one kind. All kinds of Qigong (Ch'i Kung), including Taiji (T'ai Chi), help an individual to develop strong and enduring health which is called big vitality or Tai Qi (T'ai Ch'i). There is a big difference between Qi and Ji. And there is a big difference between Ch'i and Chi, even though they all sound similar.

Taiji (T'ai Chi) is one of the longest and most difficult forms of Qigong (Ch'i Kung). Many forms of Qigong (Ch'i Kung) are very easy to learn. Taijiquan or T'ai Chi Ch'uan means Supreme Ultimate Fist or Grand Absolute boxing. In this solo practice one fights (boxes) with one's ego to attain the highest refinement of self. In both the West and in China the ego is like the shadow of one's supreme self. The Chinese often call Taijiquan shadow boxing. The individual Taiji practitioner is in a battle with his or her own shadow, the ego.

Dao Tai Qi (Tao T'ai Ch'i, Wade-Giles) means The Way of Supreme Energy or The Way of Immense Power, both are developed through Taiji (T'ai Chi) and other forms of Qigong (Ch'i Kung).
