TCMA & Qigong

Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA) is an umbrella term that refers to styles such as Kung Fu and Taijiquan (Tai Chi), which were developed throughout centuries of Chinese history.

Qigong roughly translates to "energy work." It is the art of developing and cultivating the body's Qi, or bioenergy, often through mindful breathing and meditation.
