Its name is derived from the Chinese term "taiji quanfa", with "taiji" referring to "Cosmos", and "quanfa" to "martial art", respectively. In other words, Taiji, Tai Chi, Tai Chi Chuan and Taijiquan all indicate the same thing - "Cosmos Kungfu", a martial art for health, spiritual cultivation and combat efficiency.

Taijiquan was developed during the Song dynasty in a Shaolin monastery in China by the patriarch Zhang Sanfeng, who combined internal cultivation, Shaolin Kungfu and Zen into a characteristic form of training. At his time, this art was known as "Wudang Kungfu" in honor of its birthplace, the Shaolin Wudang monastery.

At Shaolin Nordic, we teach Taijiquan honoring its original purpose as a traditional martial art.
