T'ai Chi to Jiu Jitsu? (w/ important disclaimer)
Okay, I'm really nervous and don't want to step on any toes, so here's the disclaimer: Whatever its merits, I do not practice T'ai Chi as either a martial art or a mystical meditation. For me it's learning to stand and move in a way that protects the joints and relieves strain on the muscles. I'm not going to advocate this position or argue its merits.
However, I've recently started training in BJJ, and as a white belt rolling with other white belts, I've been pleasantly surprised to learn that my t'ai chi practice is giving me a leg up over the other learners.
My question is this: Where can I go or what can I study that would help me explore this link between t'ai chi and BJJ? I enjoy both of these hobbies on their own merits, but if one can give me a leg up on the other I want to pursue that.
Is that too vague? I'm not very good at T'ai Chi and a complete newbie to BJJ and I don't want to get into making claims I can't support.
