Self-defense, Aesthetic or Physical and Mental Benefits?
Tai Chi is both. Although, the result of its popularity in the modern world made peopleís opinion has broken into three dividing beliefs. This is true especially to those who are already applying and practicing it. But however the opinions may pave its way, it always depends on how it is done.
