Tai-chi (taiji) literally means supreme-ultimate which is a reference to a Taoist philosophical concept from which yin and yang are derived. Tai-chi chuan (taijiquan) is therefore an internal martial art that embodies yin and yang and which is especially renowned for its health benefits. It is often referred to simply as tai-chi or taiji.
