Low-Impact Training Allows Almost Anyone to Pick up Tai Chi and Fall in Love
After a long, hard day’s work, most people are too exhausted to hit the gym or go for a run. Furthermore, those sorts of intense workouts can be a nightmare for older folks or those with bone or joint issues.
Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of training that’s appropriate for almost anyone. Individuals who are obese, pregnant, or just plain out-of-shape can immediately pick up Tai Chi and experience its benefits.
Even people who would consider themselves above average in terms of fitness level have plenty to gain from this low-impact style of training.
Tai Chi is the only low-impact exercise that has a proven history for reversing the aging process. Not even yoga can compare.
Coming to class even when life is full of stressful circumstances is a great way to focus on yourself, when it is most needed! I've been able to de-stress through the focus of the class. Also, with the low impact of the class, it is great for helping with my back issues. Regardless of your abilities there is a level you can participant in to help yourself improve! Tai Chi is a GREAT way for self-improvement in so many areas!
I love this place! I started my journey about 1.5 years ago hesitant to go at first because I didn't really know much about Martial Arts and was a little intimidated but I am so glad that I took that first step and went. I started with their Tai Chi program and then moved into their Kung Fu and Kickboxing class. Not only am I getting a physical workout but I also get a mental one. I learn something new every time I go; from the way our bodies work to different ways to deal with the stress of the world and etc. The instructors are amazing and I love how they explain and show why we are learning what we do; we aren't just in there moving without a purpose. They also have something for everyone of all ages. I would highly recommend Martial Zen to anyone who is looking to better themselves in a positive way.
I love training here. The material we learn not only helps in a self defense situation but also with everyday life. The instructors are great on a professional and personal level and pretty much everyone has a strong black belt attitude. I love this place!
I look forward every week training with Mr. Wofford and Ms.Reyes, they are very knowledgeable and professional in Martial Arts and always push you to be the best!!

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the health benefits of Tai Chi?
We’ve already covered most of the health benefits above, but here they are again compiled for you.
Regular practice nourishes and rejuvenates the mind, body, and soul. In a physical sense, Tai Chi strengthens the lower body and improves balance. It promotes good posture and improves joint flexibility, making it easier to stand and move around.
The flowing movements of Tai Chi and the shifting of weight improves blood flow throughout the body, which means a healthier heart.
As you learn to relax physically through the Tai Chi practice, you also relax your mind, easing the stress of work, relationships, family, and life. Coping with stress is a major benefit that attracts most people to the ancient art of Tai Chi.
Who can learn Tai Chi?
Students of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities have participated in and enjoyed our classes. Tai Chi is considered a low-impact form of exercise, meaning it is very mild and soothing to practice.
The basic and essential movements of Tai Chi are taught and practiced in slow motion. We provide real-time instruction and body adjustments so that you can feel the movements how they are meant to be felt.
Almost anyone can come in and learn the Tai Chi practice with optimism and desire.
How long does it take to learn the Tai Chi movements?
Typically, it takes anywhere from 20 to 30 hours of class to learn and memorize all the basic movements. This depends greatly on the schedule of your teaching location. The benefits of Tai Chi, however, are felt immediately. As you begin to practice the flowing movements of Tai Chi, your body will start the healing process, and you will experience many of the benefits listed above.
Long after you master the beginner movements, your Tai Chi practice will continue to evolve with you. You may continue to study at deeper and deeper levels, further increasing its benefits, and embodying the Tai Chi principles for life.
What if I have health problems or physical ailments?
Tai Chi, when properly instructed and practiced, can be safely and effectively performed by anyone capable of standing and walking around. The Tai Chi movements can and should be followed at your individual aptitude and always adjusted to your current level of health.
It may be comforting to know that plenty of scientific research has shown that Tai Chi has proven beneficial to those suffering from most chronic illnesses, including heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes. Here is a link to just one of the many studies done on Tai Chi.
If you have any physical ailment or disability it is important to consult a medical professional before beginning your Tai Chi practice.
I’m thinking about buying a Tai Chi video or book, will it be able to help?
I’ve personally purchased a Tai Chi for beginners video some years ago. While it was very informative and instructional, there is really nothing that can replace learning Tai Chi in person from an experienced instructor.
Videos and books also lack the community feeling that Tai Chi classes have to offer, which is a significant motivating factor to actually getting up and practicing.
