Qi Gong is often described as "energy work". Though it is very broad and can go much further than "energy work". It actually includes very dense aspects, and much subtle ones.

Taichi includes all those. It goes from very dense to very suibtle. But it is a martial art. That means to reach a high level in the complete approach of it, you have to fight, just like in any other martial art.

Qi Gong has mainly 4 aspects: medical(therapeutic), health(preventive), martial(a form of dense magic), and spiritual(to attain illumination).

Dense magic ????? Explain please....

Qi Gong includes differents layers of Qi, from the most dense to the most subtle. So, dense aspects correspond for example to medical techniques, as one works on layers that have direct impact on and connection with the physical body. That is different from more meditative forms of qi gong, wich are closer to actual meditation, and focus more on the mental and spiritual planes, wich are more subtle.

So, martial qi gong is the most dense of all. Even denser than the medical one. For it is used to produce mecanical force of an intensity that is greater than the one that may be used in medical applications. And it can be called magic, as in fighting, it is used very fast and against a resisting opponent. So whatever the level, it will take will, therefore magic. Now magic itself includes different layers, kind of practices, and applications. But fighting is one of the most dense ones, for the same reasons mentioned above.
