Aikido/Tai Chi

Anyone else practice Tai chi along with Aikido? I feel it helps me to relax, focus/find my canter and greatly inproves my balance.

Re: Aikido/Tai Chi

I've had several months of t'ai chi after I was well-established in aikido. It is wonderful for me in that it brings focus to things such as relaxation, weight distribution / shifting weight, and so forth. It is great for refining what I already do as well as adding new perspective (and new elements) to my current practice.

Re: Aikido/Tai Chi

Yes, T'ai Ch'i is also meant to connect with our inner chi, or Ki, which is also a goal of Aikido.

You might be interested in this clip, featuring Chen Bing, particularly about half-way through.

Re: Aikido/Tai Chi

Could this be a Aikido/Tai chi moment?
