Tai Chi and Tennis (Tennis and the Coronavirus Lockdown: Knowledge from Home)

Tai Chi is the Chinese marital art and exercise regime from the 16th Century practiced for self-defense, health benefits and meditation. It utilizes the Chinese cosmological concept of yin and yang (the opposing forces of balance in mind and body). Tai Chi also offers to enhance the body's natural biological and spiritual "flow" called Qi.
