The Seahorse Arts Mediawiki is an Online Resource Base for students training in the Lee style Taoist Arts. It consists of a collection of articles written by Chee Soo taken from over sixty years as a student and teacher dedicated to researching the philosophy of Taoism and it's practical application. The main categories include Taoist philosophy, Chinese Medicine in theory and practise, T'ai Chi Ch'uan, K'ai Men or Taoist chi gung, Tao Yin or breathing exercises, Feng Shou kung fu, and the many and various techniques of cultivation of the natural internal energy of the body the Chinese know as Ch'i. There is also an extensive body of knowledge surrounding the subject of Chinese Medicine including diagnosis and the application of the Taoist Health Arts such as Anmo Taoist massage, Tien Chen acupressure, Ts'ao Yao herbal remedies, Ch'ang Ming or Taoist macrobiotics and dietary therapy, thermogenesis, and Taoist alchemy with detailed information both from a historical perspective and as it is applied today.

Today the Taoist wears only one emblem (which certainly will not be made of gold or gold-plated) and this is it. It is Dual Monism (the interlocking triangles), which represents the Yin and Yang of all phenomena in the universe (the circle) (read more...)

Golden Principles (Chin Tao Li) of T'ai Chi Ch'uan

  • Keep your body erect without stiffness.
  • Everything about you should be completely relaxed, especially the mind.
  • Maintain the heel and toe principles for all foot movements.
  • Co-ordinate the movements of the upper and lower halves of the body.
  • Harmonize the internal and external physical aspects of the body.
  • Ensure that there is a continuity of movement at all times, and that all movements follow a curve or circular form. Movements are never straight lines in T'ai Chi.

T'ai Chi Sword

T'ai Chi Sword makes full use of the combined techniques of Whirling Hands and Whirling Arms, but these are made more difficult by the weight and length of the sword. Greater mental concentration is required to retain complete control of the arms, wrists and hands, while maintaining perfect balance, especially in a few sequences where the whole body makes a complete whirl to demonstrate the 'order of the universe'. These techniques are not easy, but nothing is really easy in the full art of T'ai Chi, because there is so much to remember and so many movements have to be practised in order to understand the essence of energy and force, and expand self-awareness and mental control.

In accordance with the basic principles of T'ai Chi, the 'Sword' form, which comprises 216 movements, has no straight lines.
