Tai Chi’s Role – Notes on Cheng Man Ching’s Tai Chi System VI

“Doctors heal the sick with Medicine and Surgery. —

Tai Chi, when practiced regularly and within its principles, will keep us tranquil and healthy.”

Once during a lecture, Cheng Man Ching was asked which of the five Excellencies was most important and he replied, ‘Tai Chi’. The audience was shocked that he would choose Tai Chi when three high art forms and the prominent healing system would take a back seat to what is seen as a martial art/exercise discipline.
He replied, and I paraphrase, “Doctors heal the sick with Medicine and Surgery. — Tai Chi, when practiced regularly and within its principles, will keep us tranquil and healthy.”
