Baduanjin Qi Gong has one of the longest history in the internal martial arts and is considered as grandfather of all Qi Gong Forms. The original purpose of Baduanjin was to train the soldiers in the imperial army and keeping them in condition. One generation later the Baduanjin gained Taoist influence and was used as life preserving exercise. The exercises were developed and adapted with the Taoist understanding to optimize the health benefits.
