Tai Chi, short for Taijiquan (太極拳), is a Chinese martial art practiced for health benefits, meditation and defense training through a series of continues and flowing movements. Taiji is a Chinese cosmological concept for the flux of yin (陰) and yang (陽), a dynamic relationship between polarities. It is a subtle blend of the most refined medical, meditative and martial knowledge combining self-discipline, graceful movement and effortless power.
Haobo Zhao studied the Chen style Tai Chi – the origin of all different styles. He won several international martial arts championships and also performed at the inaugural International Lou Reed Tai Chi Day. Haobo works on the Wall Street and deals with the extremely fast-paced financial markets every day. By integrating Tai Chi into the daily life, both physically and philosophically, it alleviates the intensive pressure from work and brings balance to life.
