Tai Chi and Qi Gong are two closely related energy-based Chinese martial arts. There is a lot that binds Tai Chi and Qi Gong together, but there are also differences that make the learning of the two arts distinct experiences. To sum up the relation between the two, we could say that Tai Chi is the most powerful tributary of a larger river that is Qi Gong. The antiquity of Qi Gong dates back to millenniums-old Chinese traditions like Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism. To be specific, Tai Chi is one of the five major ways in which Qi Gong chose to develop by our times. After the 1960s, the organically evolved art forms of Qi Gong and Tai Chi were equally stressed by the government as adoptable elements in a harmonious modern lifestyle.

Two Arts to Change You from Within: Comparing Tai Chi and Qi Gong
The focal point on which both Tai Chi and Qi Gong build up their forte is the energy that powers human beings from within. The term chi in Tai Chi and in Chi Gung (or Qi Gong) is a way of paying tribute to this inner energy which Chinese traditions believe to be the source of human motivation and being - life energy, in other words.

However, centuries of divergence in evolution has made Tai Chi and Qi Gong to adopt different ways of awakening the energy within. Tai Chi has evolved to be a physically rejuvenating martial art with medicinal and health benefits that accompany it. But in Qi Gong, the healing quality takes the spotlight and the physical aspects are supposed to be associative in nature. 

Both Tai Chi and Qi Gong adopt a liquid, plastic style of movements unlike the harder martial arts that rely on angular movements. Despite this common style of fluidity and smoothness, both the arts have developed unique and different sets of movements, with all-encompassing physical, mental and spiritual advancement.

There are also similarities and differences in how the two art forms awaken the inner energy. Both are preoccupied with chi, but Tai Chi adopts a holistic approach where all the sixteen aspects of motivating one’s life energy are synchronized in every move. Qi Gong, on the other hand, believes in wakening these elements one by one in different movements associated with different parts of the body, eventually building up the whole.
