Best Fight Scenes: Tai Chi

Literally translating to “Supreme Ultimate Fist” and being one of the three Wudang (or Wu-Tang) styles of Chinese martial arts (the other two being Baguazhang and Xing Yi) named after its origins in the Wudang Mountains of China, this martial art is commonly misperceived as only a slow-moving method of exercise and spiritual well-being. In actuality, like the other Wudang styles, it is an internal martial art, focusing on the cultivation of qi, or life force energy as it is known in Chinese philosophy, applying indirect force to subdue an opponent. This internal concept is similar to other internal martial arts like Judo, Aikido, and Hapkido where the enemy's own momentum is used against them. I’m no expert on Tai Chi but a fan of awesome fight choreography so I decided to delve a bit deeper and research some films/television series featuring Tai Chi.
