Direct Observation of the Nature

In the contact of Chang San Feng with the nature, he realized the power of lightness when the wind hits the bamboo that bends easily, without opposing resistance to wind, and at the same time, not losing its rooting. He also saw it in the water that infiltrates in the most little crevices of the rocks. In his integration with the nature, he was inspired to make new body movements for humanity. These movements, nowadays, are called Tai Chi Chuan, that can be translated literally as:

Art of Supreme Ridge
(It means something like Art of Supreme Energy)
