Who designed this exercise and why?
Tai Chi 24 Simplified forms I
was designed by a China’s national martial art committee in 1950s as one of the projects of the national fitness movement. It focuses on popularizing Tai Chi practicing among the general public to promote health and fitness with low or no cost. This set of 24 forms is based on Yang style, and has been considered standard simple set for the ordinary people to practice. It is the most popular Tai Chi set practiced by millions of people today around the world. Imagine, once you have learned this set of forms, you will be able to join in the practicing crowd in Beijing’s streets or parks without any trouble.

Tai Chi 24 Simplified forms II
was developed by David Chen, Ph. D. in Exercise Science as a complementary set to Tai Chi 24 Simplified Forms I. This set of 24 forms is focused on balancing fitness factors that were not evenly covered by Tai Chi 24 Simplified Forms I, which was considered as major shortcomings for people who practice it regularly and loyally. Dr. Chen developed Tai Chi 24 Simplified Forms II by reversing the directions and movements so that practitioners’ fitness elements can be developed evenly and in a balanced manner (like left and right), thus the total benefits of Tai Chi practicing can be maximized.
