Kenpo for war Tai chi for peace
Yet the Kenpo practitioner who practices Tai Chi can greatly benefit from it and vise versa for the Tai Chi practitioner.
Kenpo is of course a combative, but Kenpo training also develops your self confidence, coordination, stamina, and awareness. Kenpo is put plainly for war.
Tai Chi on the other hand is designed as an exercise for personal health and developing energy, endurance, inner strength, physical coordination, hand/eye coordination, balance and flexability, as well as exercising memory, improving the immune system, reducing stress, and teaches harmony, relaxation, clamness, and when done in groups, community. Tai Chi is, therefore, for peace.
The Yinyang is symbol in which its opposites are equal. One side is not larger then the other, one side cannot outweigh the other. Perfect balance and harmony must be maintained.
