T’ai chi ch’uan or Taijiquan, often shortened to tai chi in English usage, is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. It is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, and longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some of t’ai chi ch’uan’s training forms are especially known for being practiced with what most people would categorise as slow movement.
Medical research has found evidence that t’ai chi is helpful for improving balance and for general psychological health.

Later, in 1969, he joined the Brunei Karate Association before moving to Adelaide in 1970 to further his education. He continued his martial arts career under several masters both here and overseas.
