The definition of a martial artist is a person who practices martial arts. Tai Chi Chuan is a martial art. Gift ideas for a martial artist will apply to a Tai Chi practitioner. As a Tai Chi practitioner, I would also include Tai Chi books as a valuable Tai Chi gift idea. Who doesn't love a good book?

4. Tai Chi Clothing

I recommend owning a nice Tai Chi uniform. Is it a must-have? No. But it is nice to have. Practicing Tai Chi in a Tai Chi uniform is an experience that most appreciate. The feel of the fabric flowing naturally with your every movement adds to the relaxation you get from your martial art practice.


5. Martial Art GI's

A Gi is essential when practicing martial arts such as Karate, jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Aikido.


6. Tai Chi Hats

Are you looking for a hat to show your love of your favorite martial art? Why not wear a hat that promotes Tai Chi, Kung Fu, Karate, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo or your favorite martial arts. Everybody loves to wear a hat.


7. Baoding Balls

Baoding balls are two metal or Jade balls small enough to hold in one hand. They are also known as Chinese health balls. They relax the hand, improve finger dexterity, or can aid in the recovery of muscle strength.

I have a few pairs of Baoding Balls. Anyone who loves a way to relax or improve their physical health would like a pair of Baoding Balls.


8. Salt Lamps

I love the feeling and ambiance I get from my Himalayan salt lamp. I could have these in every room of my house.

9. Zen Gardens

A Zen garden is the tabletop version of a Japanese rock garden. It may provide a calm place for meditation and stillness in your busy lifestyle.

I don't personally own a Zen garden. I could see how the look would add a peaceful feeling to any office or den.



10. Tai Chi Music

When I practice Tai Chi, I like to listen to music. Asian music puts me in a relaxed state that is perfect for Tai Chi, Yoga, or standing or seated meditation. Tai Chi music can put you in the mood to enhance your martial arts training. It is rare if I don't use Tai Chi music when practicing both my Yang and Chen Tai Chi forms. Tai Chi music has become a daily staple of mine.

Some cd's titles that I personally own and recommend are: Relaxing OrientJust Relax The OrientTai Chi.


11. Shoyeido Incense

Shoyeido incense is considered the highest quality, most natural incense available on Earth. Shoyeido Incense is a personal favorite of mine. If you are going to burn incense, why not use a high-quality product.


12. Meditation Stools

Does the Martial Artist in your life meditate? If so, why not buy them a meditation stool. I remember when my sister purchased me a meditation stool. It was a surprise and a gift that I cherish. I use it all the time. It makes meditation practice comfortable while in a kneeling position.

A mediation stool is a great gift idea for the martial artist in your life.
