Chinese martial arts are a rich cultural for they contain not only the concepts of combat but also much of medical, health preservation, ethics and philosophy and more. Generally, within all traditional martial arts there are methods for developing physical health both externally and internally, mind, body and spirit. Those methods through time whether created or adopted have become intimately linked to the martial arts that they form a part of.
There are however certain systems of Health Cultivation and Preservation that have been developed uniquely and specifically. These with our associations to both TCM and Taoism, have over the last decades been carefully studied and added as standalone courses within the Taiping Institute repertoire. Some of the systems were created by the experiences of modern professors, others claim a long history of transmission. Irrespective most methods are focused on that most important consideration of Health.
