There are five principal styles of Taijiquan (or T'ai-Chi Ch'üan), Yang, Wu, Chen, Wu/Hao and Sun. They all emphasize stability, rooting and deep relaxation but have different looks and slightly different martial applications.

Aikido comes from the same martial lineage as judo and jujitsu. It emphasizes blending with attacks rather than countering force with force, and utilizes throws, joint locks, and pins. Although many techniques include softening strikes (atemi), the goal of aikido is to neutralize aggression swiftly without undue harm to the attacker. Aikidoka also practice strikes, parries, and disarms with wooden weapons: sword (bokken), staff (jo), and knife (tanto).

Awakening is something that is difficult to define because it’s characterized more by what is missing rather than what is gained. One might say that it describes a realization of Truth recognized beyond the need for belief.

While there are as many descriptions as there are perspectives, most agree that they fall short of the realization itself—a recognition so profound that it shakes the very bedrock of one’s understanding of the world and oneself.
