Years ago, when I was bumming around Asia and the Near East, I chanced up some really, really old [ancient ??] texts in a Hong Kong book store, which I had to take to several scholars to decipher, and which related that T'ai Chi was originally warm-up exercises begun at the Shaolin Temple, when the monk/instructors there noticed that their students were too prone to injury during the winter season. Don't know the accuracy of this book or the others, but I'm inclined to lean on the side of those ancient texts.

I was only interested in Qi Gong, actually. This guide is 95% about Tai Chi. The DVD was totally worthless. Disappointing.
