Tai-Chi is the use of kinetic energy, and the flow of force. It is for health and defense.

Rank Description
o Crane spreads its wings = Stand up as a reflexive action
oo Embrace the Tiger = 1 armor against all brawl or weaponry attacks. Armor stacks with other forms of armor
ooo Grasp the Sparrows tail = If he forgoes his standard Defense, roll Dexterity + Brawl; if the result exceeds the opponent’s damage roll the character suffers no damage and immediately applies a grappling hold. He may employ this maneuver against Brawl, Weaponry or close-range Firearms attacks. Drawback: This maneuver constitutes your character’s action for the turn.
oooo Hands of the Clouds = -2 to Attack for +2 Defense
ooooo Balance the Jade Monkey = An attack that succeeds against an armed opponent – do no damage, but the weapon is disarmed (weapon is 5 feet from the combatants)
