Taiji Zen is a lifestyle company founded by Jet Li and Jack Ma with the mission of spreading “Health and Happiness for All” through a balance of physical wellness and mental fitness – the Taiji Zen lifestyle.
We live in a diverse world with different ethnicities, different nations, different languages and different cultures. But we are all part of the same human family, and we have the same desire for health and happiness.
In today’s always-on, hyper-connected, technologically advanced world, we seem to find ourselves increasingly short on time and high on stress. Ever seeking speed and expediency, we ignore the rising pressure on our bodies and minds, and unconsciously drift more and more out of balance.
Ancient Chinese culture offers a different perspective based on the philosophy of Taiji (also spelled T'ai Chi, or 太極 / 太極). Simply put, everything has two sides – yin and yang, which form part of an all-encompassing whole. Fast and slow, hard and soft, dark and light, motion and stillness…all must exist in balance.
Rooted in this traditional wisdom, Taiji Zen seeks to inspire and enable a modern, balanced lifestyle through a suite of unique training programs and products. Our core curriculum includes both martial arts intensive programs, as well more modern fitness-styled workout experiences.
We hope they help bring you greater balance, health and happiness!
About the Taiji Zen Logo
The Taiji Zen logo is a new interpretation of the ancient concept of yin & yang. Within the design one finds elements of complementary opposites: hard and soft, dark and light, pliable and unbending, all co-existing together. Soft wisps grow out of the solid handle, and out of the linear form, a circular contour takes shape.
The ‘Zen’ in the Taiji Zen logo is determined by the observer. If you can grasp the tool of Taiji and utilize the yin & yang perspective, it can bring more balance to your life and help you achieve greater health and happiness.
