A Foundation in History
It was suggested by Lao Tsu (Father of Taoism), that Tai Chi derives its name from the concept of Yin and Yang, known as the Tai Chi symbol. Yin and Yang are the central concept in traditional Chinese medicine, philosophy, and culture, depicting two complimentary polar opposites that, together, create a dynamic, balanced, integrated and inter-dependent whole (reference The Harvard Medical School Guide to Tai Chi, Peter M. Wayne, PhD, with Mark L. Fuerst).
