As old as I want to be 

  

Saw a great quote about Tai Chi today that I’d like to paraphrase.

Taijiquan, at least originally, was created as a discipline for self-perfection, long life, happiness and found its ‘application’ as a martial art – it contained teachings from previous Taoist practices.

I think that’s pretty good because it acknowledges that tai chi was never just a martial art, which explains the wacky applications you see doing the rounds, and also acknowledges that it isn’t ancient itself, but contains practices within it that might be.
