TaiJi is an internal martial art that uses soft flowing movements and meditation in unison. There are 4 main Taiji family styles Chen, Yang, Wu, and Sun. The form of TaiJi we teach at Jade Fortress is Chen Family. Qi Gong is the manipulation of life energy in the body by way of strong meditation, and body movements.  Though Qi Gong is still a martial art it is not for offense or defense it is used to aid in physical abilities. Practicing Qi Gong will help to strengthen the body, increase awareness. There are four different Qi Gong sets practiced Ba Duan Jing, Yi Jin Jing, Xi Sui Jing, and Yin Qi Gong.
