Yo chi (ヨチー), sometimes referred as Jap tai chi (日本の太極拳), is a internal Yoko-Japanese martial art developed in the Yoko Empire, it is influenced by T'ai chi ch'uan. Yo chi is practised for both its defense training and its health benefits. It is also typically practised for a variety of other personal reasons: its hard and soft martial art technique, demonstration competitions, and longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims. Some of Yo chi's training forms are especially known for being practised with what most people would categorise as slow movement.
