Tai Chi Reflects the Warrior Code

November 7, 2011

Tai Chi is based on the ancient warrior code of honor and respect, as are all martial arts.  In fact, this code was the code of all ancient warriors before highly technical warfare upset the balanced perspective.

Warriors Code

Love:   The warrior develops a skilled body with a kind heart.

Respect:  The warrior respects self and all living things.

Care:  The warrior cares for self and for the world.

Responsibility:  The warrior takes responsibility through superior effort.

Honor:  The warrior only fights to protect self or others.

Peace:  The greatest warrior always stands for peace.
