Taiji philosophy perceives its techniques and approaches as widely applicable and indeed piano playing is itself reliant on movement, stance, posture, force and relaxation, just as is taijiqiian. The research was carried out through personal participation, practice and application. library work analysis, interview, observation and ethnography, leading to a lecture-recital to demonstrate the results in practice as well as the present dissertation, which reflects on those results in more detail.
