    I'm a 39-year-old man who is in a wheelchair. I recently discovered Tai Chi as a form to help me with life in a wheelchair. I've also recently become a freelance writer, and I wrote an article about Tai Chi. I would love some feedback on the article and if I missed anything. THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF TAI CHI

    Mostly good, 2 points

    1) you are talking about Tàijíquán (太極拳) and the actual translation is not breath work. It is grand ultimate fist or supreme ultimate fist

    2) there is no historical proof that it was started in Taoist and Buddhist monasteries. That would be a reference to the Taoist Zhang Sanfeng and there is now historically viable proof of his existence either. The most you can say and be historically accurate is that it came from the Chen Family, from Chen Wangting in the 17th century
