Tai Chi is a martial art combining martial art movements with Qi (vital energy), circulation, breathing, and meditation techniques. According to Teague and MacNeil (1992), when people reach senior age, their functional abilities decline and deteriorate, and different diseases, such as arthritis, decreased bone density, loss of flexibility and sense of balance, and muscle atrophy, can make the body weaker and less flexible.
