I hope this is the right forum for this question. I am reading about the history of T'ai Chi. I am getting two diffferent versions on the origin of T'ai Chi. The one that a General developed T'ai Chi, but I cannot get much information on this one. The other is that a monk took the breathing techniques learnt from his own masters , the fighting techniques from the Shaolin and combined these to develop the first form of T'ai Chi.
Does anyone have more information on the General and / or the Monk?
