Shibashi (十八式) literally means ’18 movements’ or techniques. The Shibashi exercises are modified by Grandmaster Gary Khor into a health plan, designed to cultivate relaxation and energy, and a gentle physical and mental workout for the whole human body. Shibashi X was designed by Grandmaster Gary Khor to supplement other Shibashi forms taught by the Australian Academy of Tai Chi. Shibashi X differs from Shibashi 1 and 2 in the AATC by drawing more widely on Wushu and martial arts forms than existing Shibashi forms. This means that those who have enjoyed and benefited from other Shibashi forms can now increase the variety of the movements they perform. This not only increases interest but also exposes practitioners to more benefits.
